    Default NY Serial Killer is way more scarier then a strangler...

    Yet, its barley a blip on the radar....

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/09/ny...ewanted=1&_r=2


    Whoever killed four prostitutes, and possibly four other people, and then dumped their bodies in heavy underbrush along a beachfront causeway on Long Island appears to have a sophisticated understanding of police investigative techniques, according to people briefed on the case.

    A series of taunting phone calls made to the teenage sister of one of the victims — calls that the police suspect came from the killer — were made from in or around some of the most crowded locations in New York City, including Madison Square Garden and Times Square, according to the people briefed on the case and to the mother of Melissa Barthelemy, that victim.

    The locations, detectives say, were probably chosen because they allowed the caller to blend into crowds, so that if investigators pinpointed his location from the cellphone’s signal, they would be unable to pick him out of the crowd using any nearby surveillance cameras, one of the people said.

    This fact, as well as the killer’s use of disposable cellphones to contact the four victims who have been identified — women in their 20s who advertised their services on Craigslist — suggested to some investigators that the killer was well versed in criminal investigative techniques, gleaned either through personal experience or in some other way, and could even be in law enforcement himself.

    “He is a guy who is aware of how we utilize technology,” one investigator said. “Frankly, people are thinking maybe he could be a cop” — either one still in law enforcement or one who has moved on.

    “Without question, this guy is smart, this guy is not a dope,” the investigator continued. “It’s a guy who thinks about things.”

    Also, the caller kept each of his vulgar, mocking and insulting calls to less than three minutes, according to the dead woman’s mother, Lynn Barthelemy. The caller made about a half-dozen calls over roughly five weeks to the victim’s sister.

    Hopefully they get this guys as quickly as they got the one here.....

    This is so interesting ... I just was watching the Lodger last week ... maybe a cop gone bad or a cop just exactly doing what he thinks is the right way ??

    'Long Island Ripper' may be linked to old murders

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...s-2265452.html

    The hunt for a suspected serial killer in Long Island took a dramatic new turn yesterday when the discovery of eight bodies were linked to murders of four prostitutes in Atlantic City, in neighbouring New Jersey, in 2006.

    This serial killer has been around for some time, and clearly demonstrates the problems in determining whether there is a serial killer or not, and how clever and shrewd some can be. At least they've found some of the bodies, which means that families now know and can begin to deal with the fallout. And hopefully, now that they're aware of the breadth and scope of these killings and are beginning to develop a profile of the killer, he will be found, sooner rather than later.

    Default Police Think Long Island Serial Killer May Be Ex-Law Enforcement

    Police Think Long Island Serial Killer May Be Ex-Law Enforcement - FoxNews.com

    The Long Island serial killer who has dumped up to eight bodies along a Long Island barrier beach may be an ex-cop or other law officer according to law enforcement officials familiar with the case, ABC News reports.

    The idea that the killer may be a former law enforcement official, or someone familiar with law enforcement techniques, is based on evidence that the suspect may be knowledgeable of investigators' procedures, according to officials.

    This is a really creepy case. It makes you wonder why police waited so long to search the Island. Shannan Gilbert went missing in May and the island wasn't searched till December. I think 3 or 4 other prostitutes went missing and were dumped on the same island between May and December. I read somewhere that the 911 dispatcher dispatched the call Shannan made when she was saying someone was trying to kill her as a disturbance or something to that effect, which I am guessing is low priority.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Johnny Law likes to throw out a lot of misinformation too so they can weed out fake confessions from local loony bins. Statistically the guy is probably white, but it could really be anyone. I'm not buying all their profiles. I would think most people would have the common sense to use "burner" phones and call from crowded places.

    Default Web sex forum sought revenge against victim of Long Island serial killer

    Once again ,this shows me how craigslist and other free sites plays a vital role in this case , craigslist is probably one of the most watched list by authorities (hint hint)...
    In this case it was Long Island Escorts, Massage Parlors, Adult Entertainment (can't be accessed since it's public..)

    "The members of LongIslandErotic.com were angry when one of those on the forum claimed he’d paid Amber Lynn Costello $200 for sexual services, but was robbed when two men threatened him after barging in to her home, according to the New York Daily News.

    The individual, using the name of “Humiliatrix69,” first made the allegation in the forum on July 11, 2010.

    Another user, “Italyrider” asked for Amber’s address saying, “No one from this board needs to be involved. I have friends who can take care of this s***.”

    Humiliatrix69 obliged and posted Amber’s home address, a description of her residence and her phone number on the site. "

    'Angels' of a devil: Women slain in Atlantic City, Long Island show up on Facebook | Philadelphia Daily News | 04/19/2011

    But the eight identified online call girls and prostitutes whose bodies were found in Atlantic City and Long Island - their murders remain unsolved - share another bizarre connection: They have all been reborn on Facebook.

    "I didn't know you but I feel a strong connection to you. You are an Angel," someone posing as Kim Raffo recently posted on a Facebook memorial page.

    As for the fake Facebook profiles, O'Toole thinks they could just be a misguided person with bad judgment, someone fascinated with murder cases. She doesn't think it's the murderer, though.

    Two NYPD Cops May Be Suspects in Long Island Serial Killings - National - The Atlantic Wire

    Now the New York Post is reporting that two NYPD cops are being "eyed" in the serial killings after investigators learned they got into trouble for hiring prostitutes while working for the department, sources familiar with the case related. There's no word yet as to whether the officers acted in tandem or even knew each other.
