THE boyfriend of murdered prostitute Anneli Alderton has described his grief at losing his partner and the couple's unborn baby.
Sam Jefford said the "two most precious things" in his life had been taken away when his girlfriend's body was found just over a week ago in woods.
Miss Alderton, formerly of Huddersfield, is one of five Ipswich prostitutes whose murdered naked bodies have been discovered in Suffolk since the beginning of December.
Mr Jefford, 21, said: "She's gone forever and she's never coming back. Neither is our baby."
Talking about his anger for her killer he added: "That b****** has taken away the two most precious things in my life.
"If we were in the same room and I had a gun. I'd shoot him. It's all he deserves."
The pair met at a drugs rehabilitation unit in Colchester where they were receiving treatment for addiction to class A drugs.
Their friendship later became a relationship but Mr Jefford did not realise Anneli, who was around three months pregnant, was a prostitute.
He added that his girlfriend was training to become a hairdresser and even wrote to the Prince's Trust for a loan.
Their dreams of a life together ended when her naked body was found in woods at Nacton, Suffolk, on December 10 - a week after she made a train journey from Manningtree, Essex, to Ipswich. Police said she had been strangled.
But detectives think her body was in the woods on December 7. They believe a passing motorist mistook the dead woman for a mannequin.
Police first launched a murder inquiry when Gemma Adams, 25, was found in Belstead Brook at Hintlesham on December 2. Tania Nicol was found in the same stream at Copdock on December 8.
Paula Clennell, 24, was discovered in woods at Levington on December 12. Police say she died as a result of "compression" to the neck. Annette Nicholls was also found the same day in woods at Levington.
Police have not said how Miss Adams, Miss Nicol and Miss Nicholls died. Toxicology tests are being carried out.
Yesterday officers stopped hundreds of motorists in the red light area of Ipswich.
Officers were also on the streets where Miss Clennell was last seen two weeks earlier and spoke to 400 motorists and pedestrians.
Detectives released CCTV footage on Saturday showing Miss Alderton on the 5.53pm Harwich to Colchester train on December 3. Police said they had received a stream of calls as a result.
Det Chief Supt Stewart Gull said: "We are now confident we can begin piecing together the jigsaw of Anneli's last movements."
Miss Alderton, the mother of a young boy, lived in Huddersfield for several years.
She had homes in Primrose Hill and Marsden, while her mother lived in Almondbury and her grandmother in Meltham.
