    UK - Bodies in Avon spark 'Bristol Pusher' fears

    Daily Mail:

    Is there a serial killer in Bristol? Fears grow that a shadowy figure is
    drowning young men in a chilling echo of the 'Manchester Pusher' claims

    • Three missing men have been found in the River Avon canal since January
    • Residents are growing concerned a serial killer is behind their deaths
    • Lewis Ball, 24, and Deakon Wilkins, 26, went missing on separate nights out
    • Now a third body has been discovered, igniting more worry in the community
    I'd say the answer to the headlined question is no. You?

    Independent:

    Is a 'pusher' serial killer targeting Bristol after four bodies recovered in four months?
    Discovery of latest body body sparks fears that someone is pushing men into waterways

    ---
    Some linked the Bristol cases to incidents in Bath where there have been reports of 11 deaths in the same stretch of the River Avon since 2009.

    “There are too many coincidences here,” said Lavina Smith. “Why isn’t anyone investigating the possibility that this is a serial crime attack in Bristol and Bath?”

    Others drew parallels with incidents in Manchester, suggesting that in that city too, the deaths of young men found in canals were not coincidence, but the result of “something darker”.
