Headline labels her "Heroic Hooker".  Does it really matter?  Why write the headline so?
Did they have to out her so publicly?  Why not say "Heroic Woman"?

Heather is currently unable to work and not entitled to disability benefits.
When is the U.S. going to look at sex work as work?  Obviously Heather has not been "trafficked".

That rubbed me the wrong way, as well.  I would say "click bait" but the fact that the story deals with a potential serial killer should suffice to lure in readers.  Plus, they already identified her as a prostitute in the very first line.  Is the reader supposed to be surprised that she exhibited heroism? That in the face of death, she fought for her life and won? Part of me wonders if the writers patted themselves othe back for that bit of alliteration.
