Prostitute death: four arrested
Police comb the alley for clues
Police investigating the death of a prostitute whose body was found dumped in an alley in Hull have arrested four people.
The body of Hayley Morgan, 20, was found on Friday morning in Beverley Road. Red-haired Hayley, who also used the surname Marshall, was a chronic drug abuser who worked the Luke Street red light area of the city, near where she lived, police said.
Another prostitute, Samantha Class, 29, was murdered at the end of last year in Hull and dumped in a similar manner.
Detective Superintendent Quentin Dowse, who is leading the investigation, said: "We are comparing similarities and seeing if there is any link, but at this stage there's nothing concrete to link the crimes other than the fact that the victims were both prostitutes."
He said police believed Hayley was killed elsewhere before being dumped. He was eager to find out why her body was found in Beverley Road, which is some distance from where she lived and worked.
A post-mortem examination showed she died from asphyxiation but had no other significant injuries.
