Police in Pirkanmaa suspects a nearly 30-year-old woman with intent to have had unprotected sex, even though she knew she was HIV positive. The suspected woman has worked as an erotic dancer in Tampere, Jyväskylä and Lahti.

The woman named Judith Omondi-Mäkelä, but has also used the name Rachel. She was born in 1982 and lives in Tampere. She must have had multiple sexual partners during the years 2005 to 2010. The woman is now in custody.

The investigations so far police have found the seven men who had sexual involvement with a woman, but police believe the men may be many more.

The police has released an image of the woman so that men who suspect they may be contaminated, becoming HIV-tested. The police point out that the men could float in danger and can also spread the infection to others.

The woman has consented to the picture published.
