Sex Worker Founded Dead and Burned in Upper Arlington. Police refuse to call it murder. | Mockingbird Paper

Police have a term for murdered sex workers. The term is “Less than Dead.” This is the literal station house and locker room phrase and has also been used to describe the level of zeal when a crime is committed against sex workers. It was not suprising hearing those words echo from the bushes in Upper Arlington this morning. Viewing this latest case, and the context and the official reaction makes the echos loud. 23 year old Bobbie Renee Simpson, whose body was found burning in a bush on the side of a park trail by a jogger the previous morning. The police are investigating the crime as an arson and abuse of a corpse. Arson is a felony. Abuse of a corpse is a misdemeanor. In the eyes of the police the burning bush was more alive than Bobbie Renee Simpson. - Mockingbird Paper / Ohio
