Case 37: The Yorkshire Ripper (Part 2)

[Part 2 of 3] West Yorkshire is a county in England that has a population of over 2 million people. It covers an area of over 2,000 km² and is formed by five cities: Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Kirklees, and Calderdale. Each one of these cities has its own history, its own identity, and its own voice. But during the 1970’s, they were all united. The residents of each city were looking over their shoulders, praying they wouldn’t be the next victim, in one man’s reign of terror who the press named, “The Yorkshire Ripper.” We left part one with sex workers being warned to take care, to not stand alone and to not take lifts from people they didn’t know. Unfortunately, many women couldn’t afford to take this advice, and the Ripper would kill again…   __________ Researched and written by Victoria Dieffenbacher    Music – 'Flatline intro' and 'Come play with me' intro and outro  – All other music scoring and production performed by Mike Migas and Andrew Joslyn
