DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say 3 of 4 women recently found dead in car trunks had promoted themselves as escorts through a website.
Police Chief Ralph Godbee talked to reporters Monday, a day after the burned bodies of 2 women were discovered in a trunk on Detroit's east side. On Dec. 19, the bodies of 2 other women were also found in a car trunk.
Godbee says meeting strangers through the Internet can be "extremely dangerous." He says 3 of the four victims used a website, www.backpage.com. It's a place to buy and sell things but also carries personal ads.
