"This is just bizarre!" she muttered to Gramsci. "Do you think he took to killing sex workers because they expected him to be funny? And then when they didn't laugh at his jokes, he felt embarrassed and had to delete all memory of the incident?"
Gramsci shrugged. "Perhaps he was just recycling," he suggested. "Once he'd paid, he wanted to use the same payment for the next woman?"
"Well," the Cow added, "That's not the only recycling going down in the story. It seems his partner's surname - her own, independent of any connection with him - was also Wright. As was the prosecutor in the case, according to the reports."
"Yet another 'coincidence', no doubt," suggested Gramsci. "As well as the similarities in surnames of two of his victims, Nicol and Nicholls."
"Well I'll bet that despite what the prosecutor called him in court, his partner no longer considers him 'Mr Right'," the Cow sighed.
Gramsci agreed. "It is a Wright mess," he conceded.
