WARWICK, R.I. – An exotic dancer who was bound and held at gunpoint at a hotel by a man who answered her Craigslist ad suggested that her ordeal could be linked to a Boston hotel slaying, police said Friday.
A 26-year-old Las Vegas woman who police believe was offering sex for money through the Craigslist posting was attacked at a Holiday Inn Express Thursday night, Warwick Police Chief Stephen McCartney said. The assailant fled when the victim’s husband returned to the room.
Earlier this week, a woman who advertised massage services on Craigslist was shot and killed at a luxury hotel in Boston.
McCartney said that after Thursday’s attack in Warwick, “the victim apparently made a statement to police that in her opinion, this situation mirror-imaged what happened up in Boston.”
The description of the suspect in Thursday’s attack also matches that of a “person of interest” wanted for questioning in the Boston slaying.
