Cops: Deaths could be work of serial killer

Updated: December 14, 2010 12:06 PM


Police are investigating whether the deaths of four people whose remains were found along a stretch of beach in Babylon came at the hands of a serial killer, the Suffolk police commissioner said Tuesday.

The bodies - three of which were discovered in thick underbrush Monday, two days after another set of skeletal remains was found nearby - were tossed from a vehicle possibly as long as a year and a half to two years ago, Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said at a news conference Tuesday at the frigid, windswept scene near Ocean Parkway.

Asked if there was a serial killer dumping bodies, Dormer said, "We're looking at that - that we could have a serial killer."

VIDEO: More bodies found

Two of the bodies are female, Dormer said. He asked that anyone with information on suspicious cars in the area call the county's CrimeStoppers line, 800-220-TIPS.

Dormer said police are not sure if one of the bodies is that of missing Jersey City, N.J., woman Shonnan Gilbert, 24, whom police have said was a prostitute.

Dormer said Gilbert was known to have been traveling to Fire Island to meet a client before she disappeared in May.

Police will be interviewing Gilbert's alleged pimp and client from that day, Dormer said. He would not identify them or give other details.Also, a Maine detective said Tuesday he is waiting to hear from Suffolk authorities on whether one of the bodies is related to his missing persons case.

Det. Donald Blatchford of the Scarborough, Maine, police said he had talked with Suffolk police Monday and was expecting to hear if one of the bodies was that of Scarborough resident Megan Waterman, 22, who was last seen at a Holiday Inn Express in Hauppauge on June 6.


Dormer said police have no suspects in the case.


The area where the bodies were found "is close enough to be of interest," Blatchford said.

Blatchford said he has been in regular contact with Suffolk authorities since Waterman disappeared. She and her boyfriend had traveled from Scarborough to Long Island after placing an ad for an escort on Craigslist.

Blatchford said Suffolk police already have DNA evidence in the Waterman case from belongings left behind in the Hauppauge hotel.

Blatchford said he hasn't received any indication from Suffolk police that Waterman may be among the victims found on the beach.

Blatchford said he has made some progress recently in the case, but could not elaborate without compromising the case.

On Monday night, Det. Lt. Gerard Pelkofsky of Suffolk's Homicide Squad said a missing-person report had been made in May for Gilbert, who he said worked as a prostitute. He said she met a client on Craigslist and arranged a meeting on Fire Island, he said. She traveled with another man there to meet the client, where she was last seen on May 1, he said.

A Jersey City police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed a missing-person report was filed for Gilbert and said detectives had done "extensive work" on the file.

"They're in contact with Long Island police right now," the source said Monday night, declining to elaborate.

Neighbors at Gilbert's modest apartment building on Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City said Tuesday morning they didn't know her.

Jose Delarosa, who lives on the fourth floor, said Tuesday he sometimes could hear Gilbert quarreling with her boyfriend, but "never anything bad."

Ruby Aparicio, who lives on the first floor, said she'd seen Gilbert a couple times around the building, but they had never spoken. Her third-floor apartment is now occupied by a family that said they moved in three months ago and had never met her.

A Jersey City police spokesman, Lt. Edgar Martinez, did not respond to messages Monday night.

Pelkofsky acknowledged the strong possibility that the four people are homicide victims dumped there by the same person or people.

"Common sense tells us it's not a coincidence," he said.

All four bodies were found within a quarter-mile of one another on the north side of the parkway.

The first set of remains were discovered Saturday by a canine unit searching in the area on a missing-persons case as well as for training purposes.

The remains in the underbrush, were about 6 or 8 feet from the road's shoulder.

Detectives and other police officers Monday searched a stretch of more than a mile through the day on both sides of the parkway and a median, and officers and a cadaver dog found a second decomposed body about 500 feet from the initial body, also in heavy underbrush near the roadway. Two others were found a short distance away.

The area is near a strip of Ocean Parkway with beachfront facing the Atlantic on one side, and marshlands, thick brush and a chain of small islands on the bay side between South Oyster Bay and the Robert Moses Causeway.

Two of the three bodies found Monday were wrapped in burlap, a source familiar with the investigation said.

The skeletal remains all appear to have been there at least a month, but "some appear to be have been there longer than others," Pelkofsky said. The badly decomposed state of the remains means all will need to be identified through dental records or DNA.

A cadaver dog will search the beach Tuesday, Dormer said.

Identifying the bodies could take weeks because of their conditions, Dormer said. No paper identification, such as drivers licenses, has been found, he said.

The New York City medical examiner as well as the Suffolk medical examiner are working to identify the bodies, Dormer said.

A special meeting was scheduled for Tuesday with Suffolk detectives, the district attorney's office, a member of the county crime lab team and a representative of the county medical examiner's office to go over what has been found so far and to put together a plan for identifying the bodies.

Bodies found on NY beach may link to murders of Atlantic City prostitutes

An apparent serial killer left four bodies “displayed” in marshes along Gilgo Beach on Long Island. The homicides are eerily reminiscent of the murders of four Atlantic City Prostitutes in Nov., 2006.
The first body in N.Y., was discovered Saturday by a Suffolk County K-9 officer and his dog “Blue.” The pair were on a training exercise and looking for a missing person along the beach on Oak Island, which is adjacent to Gilgo Beach.
The subsequent investigation on Sunday and Monday turned up the skeletal remains of three more people. The search for more bodies is being conducted today.
Yellow crime flags are planted in the area where the bodies and body parts were discovered along Ocean Parkway on the remote beach just south of Fire Island.
The murders appear to have occurred at different times during November according to the degrees of decomposition, police said. More accurate information will be available after the medical examiner completes his investigation.
November is the same month the murders of four Atlantic City Prostitutes occurred four years ago. The killer of Kim Raffo, Tracy Ann Roberts, Barbara Breidor and Molly Dilts was never found.
The two most notable clues given to the public in the Atlantic City case was the fact that the women were found without their shoes, leading investigators and the public to wonder if the killer had a shoe fetish or took them as a trophy.
The other clue was that the killer may have been driving a pale green van. Others described a pale white or yellow van.
Although the bodies on Gilgo Beach have not yet been identified, one woman from Jersey City, N.J., has been missing since May 1, 2010 and grabbed the attention of investigators.
Alleged prostitute Shonnan Gilbert, 24, advertised on Craig’s List and was driven to Fire Island by a male companion to meet an alleged client, according to police.

Gilbert was never seen or heard from again. She was reported missing on May 1, 2010.
The Jersey City and Suffolk County Police are now working together to determine if Gilbert is among the dead, according to the Suffolk County Police.
The news of the bodies on Long Island slowly trickled down to southern New Jersey Tuesday morning. Officers from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Task Force are now seeking information from the Suffolk County Police.
Information may shed light on the Atlantic City murder case, which has grown cold over the last four years. Only one man grabbed the attention of the public and police at the time of the murders. He was never charged with the crime or even named a suspect.
Terry Oleson was a handyman who worked at the Golden Key Motel in 2006. The bodies were found displayed behind the motel. Oleson was subsequently arrested and charged with invasion of privacy for secretly filming the minor child of girlfriend after a search warrant of his home yielded the video.
Many people in the community assumed he was the murderer after a prostitute claimed she knew him and that he boasted of killing people. The woman later recanted her statement and said she misidentified Oleson after seeing another man on the street, who she claimed committed the murders.
Oleson’s attorney James Leonard said in a phone interview Tuesday that he knew his client has never traveled to Long Island. He said if the murders are connected it will finally clear his client’s name.
“This is good news for us,” said Leonard. “I know Mr. Olsen’s whereabouts and he has never been near New York.
Leonard said his client is not a well traveled person.
People who are missing loved ones are now waiting for the identification of the victims found on the beach. The process will be slow and painstaking due to the state of the remains. Dental records and DNA will be needed for positive identification, according to police.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates throughout the day.

With 4 bodies, NY cops eye possible serial killer
 1 hr 1 min ago
BABYLON, N.Y. – A serial killer may have abandoned four bodies, each apparently dumped from a vehicle, along a desolate, wind-swept stretch of highway not far from Long Island's Jones Beach, police said Tuesday.

Police found the badly decomposed remains, feet from the roadway, near Cedar Beach as they searched for a missing prostitute last known to be headed to Fire Island, said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer. At least two of the bodies are female, but authorities haven't determined the gender of the other two, Dormer said.

Investigators were taking DNA samples and examining dental records to try to identify them.

"We're looking at that — that we could have a serial killer," Dormer said in response to a reporter's question.

The beach is about three miles from where the missing woman was headed when she disappeared May 1, but Dormer said there was no indication yet that hers was one of the four bodies.

Dormer said the four appeared to have been killed elsewhere and then brought to the site, a strip of land less than 1,000 yards wide that divides the Great South Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The roadway connects the landmark Jones Beach State Park with several state and town-run beaches to its east, including Cedar Beach.

The remains were badly decomposed, but appeared to have been dumped over an 18-month period, Dormer said. The first set of remains were found Saturday as police were following up on a missing-person report. The three other bodies were found Monday.

Jersey City, N.J., police identified the missing prostitute as 24-year-old Shannon Gilbert, of Jersey City. Dormer said Gilbert worked as a prostitute and arranged through Craigslist to meet a client on Fire Island.

The popular summertime vacation resort of Fire Island is actually a 30-mile strip of villages located just east of Cedar Beach. While some parts of western Fire Island are accessible by motor vehicle, most visitors travel there by ferry.

Police officers returned to the scene Tuesday with a cadaver dog, searching the area for additional bodies. Despite a howling wind, temperatures in the low 20s and a coating of snow on the ground, Dormer said the dog would still be able to do its work. He said the search of the vast, remote area could take days or longer.

The discovery drew comparisons to a 4-year-old New Jersey case in which four prostitutes' bodies were found in a drainage ditch in Egg Harbor Township, just outside Atlantic City and about a mile from the beach. Those killings remain unsolved.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Theodore Housel said Tuesday that Atlantic County detectives were still investigating the bodies found in November 2006 and had spoken with authorities in New York about their case.

"We have been in contact with authorities in Suffolk County, New York," he said. "It would not be fair for us to comment on their investigation." He would not comment further.

Long Island Serial Killer: Are Dead Bodies More Important than Missing Girls?
By Jaclyn Gallucci on December 16th, 2010

Six months ago, when Megan Waterman left a Hauppauge hotel and never came back in June, her disappearance barely made news. Hardly anyone on Long Island knew her name.

Now that four bodies were found on Ocean Parkway in a quaint, beautiful beachside community and Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer has said those bodies may be the work of a serial killer—and that they were found while police were searching for another missing prostitute, Shannon Gilbert, who received even less media attention than Waterman when she disappeared back in May—Waterman’s and Gilbert’s names are suddenly everywhere you look.

Lorraine Ela, Waterman’s mother, said Wednesday that Det. Don Blatchford, lead detective on the Waterman’s case, said he was “leaning toward one of the four victims being Megan, but he’s not 100 percent guaranteed.”

The four bodies found on Ocean Parkway are located a 20-30 minute car ride away from the Holiday Inn Express just off the Long Island Expressway in Hauppauge where Waterman was last seen. Investigators have taken DNA samples from Ela to compare with the remains found at the beach.
Meanwhile, the FBI is now involved with the investigation, since the case may now involve a serial killer. Ela’s DNA was taken on Wednesday and will ship  to New York in an effort to determine whether one of the bodies found is that of her daughter, said Robert Moulton, chief of the Scarborough, Maine, Police Department.

“There’s definitely a possibility, but we’re on hold at this point,” Moulton said .

Gilbert, the New Jersey prostitute who met a client in Oak Beach on May 1, disappeared just down the road from where the four bodies were discovered.

Suffolk County police discovered the first body on Saturday and the other three on Monday while following up on a missing-persons report for Gilbert. A Long Island resident recalled seeing the woman believed to be Gilbert briefly at his door around 4:45 a.m. May 1.

“I heard screaming at my front door,” said Gustav Coletti, who lives in Ocean Beach, about three miles from where the bodies were found. “She was saying, ‘I need help, I need help, they’re after me.’” He told the woman he was calling the police, but she immediately turned around and fled.

A few moments later, a man in a sport-utility vehicle drove past the house and told Coletti he was looking for the woman. Coletti said the driver told him they had been at a party and the woman had become upset.

“He took off after and I waited for the police,” he said. That was the last he saw of either the driver or woman, said Coletti, who could not offer details on the SUV or the man.

Juan Cosme, who lived across the hall from Gilbert and her boyfriend in Jersey City, said he often heard the couple fighting loudly through a shared wall.
They were always arguing, like curdling screams sometimes,” Cosme said. “I called the police a few times when they went at it at three in the morning and there was like a loud banging on the walls; I don’t know if the police ever came.”

Cosme said that when he saw Gilbert alone she rarely made eye contact and would only occasionally mumble “hello.”

Police did not search along the Long Island highway, about 45 miles east of Manhattan, on Wednesday, but a spokeswoman said it was likely investigators would return there in the coming days.

Detectives believe the four were killed elsewhere and then taken to Ocean Parkway.

New reports are surfacing that the remains found could be too old to be those of Gilbert, which would mean they would also be too old to be those of Waterman.

Different scenarios are being tossed around by the public and the names Megan Waterman and Shannon Gilbert–names practically unknown on Long Island until this week–have gone national. Even the UK Daily Mail is reporting the story.

But if it is either of these women, or both, who were tossed out of a car and left among the sand dunes and brush at Gilgo beach, all this attention won’t help either of them now.

If it’s not, maybe the media hoopla will help find them. Or help find their killer or killers, if the worst case scenario comes to be.

But if there was this much attention given to either of these women back in May and June when they first disappeared, if their faces and their families’ pleas for information were everywhere you looked months ago, if their stories were front page news back then, maybe the end result could have been different.

Maybe not.

If the LI murderer is the same AC murderer, what's his fascination with the #4? Is there a significance to this #? Is anybody here a Mason that deals with numbers as a higher power of significance? If so, maybe you could lend a hand... Both sets of murders are thought to have occurred in the month of November - 4 women in the AC area from 2006 and 4 women in the LI area. The AC murders were of 4 prostitutes. The LI murders are thought to be of prostit now in 2010utes but full disclosure of such isn't privy to us yet. There are 4 years between 2006 & 2010. What's this idiot think it's the Olympics or something?

Garden State Parkway is a straight shot that connects Atlantic City NJ to Long Island NY. I wonder if it could be somebody that works for the road department, or maybe somebody that used to but now works in maintenance. I mean, who would know the most remote places to DISPLAY these bodies? Whomever it is, they had to know this was a good spot to dump the bodies...right? What kind of regular "layperson" would know this place? Also, considering the murders in Atlantic City, and if they are in fact related, what kind of person would know the best place to DISPLAY the bodies? Such a place would be hidden enough that the culprit could dispose of the bodies and be able to get away in time - without being seen and/or caught.

What a difference in the way crime stories are reported in New York and New Jersey newspapers. Perhaps it was an error in judgment, but the investigator in charge of the Long Island case has already admitted that these bodies may be the work of a serial killer. Usually no matter what the circumstances members of the law enforcement community will deny the possibility of a serial murder case. This has been demonstrated in the Atlantic City murders in November of 2006 and in the murders of two elderly females in Bergen County in 2010. The Long Island murders are linked to New Jersey through one possible victim, Shonnan Gilbert, of Jersey City, alleged to be a prostitute as were the Atlantic City victims. It was revealed that the victims in Long Island showed no sign of trauma which presents the possibility of suffocation or strangulation. All of the Atlantic City victims were asphyxiated. The Atlantic City victims were placed several hundred feet apart in a drainage ditch alongside the Atlantic City Expressway. Facing east, possibly towards the casinos, but also in the general direction of New York. It will be interesting to discover if any articles of clothing, particularly shoes, were removed from the New York victims. The posing of the victims in Atlantic City may have been possible due to the proximity of a motel and the fact that the murderer’s vehicle would not stand out, allowing more time to place the victims. In the Long Island case, any vehicle stopped along that stretch of roadway would be clearly visible and unusual. The assailant would have little time to risk any activity other than dumping the bodies. It is hard to imagine that in today’s world with all we now know about serial murderers, that anyone would deny a possible connection between any murders simply because of distance. Furthermore, the lack of information about two females found dead in motel/hotels in Egg Harbor and Washington Township along the same roadway as the Atlantic City murder victims, the Black Horse Pike, is truly disturbing. Perhaps none of these cases are related, but certainly the Atlantic City murders are not solved some four years later and this type of assailant will continue killing until he dies or is arrested.
End Quote

Now, remember I mentioned the Garden State Parkway? Well look on Google Maps & see where the Black Horse Pike is. The Black Horse Pike is US40 / Rte322. So if I look at Long Island NY, the look at Atlantic City, NJ, I will then look in the middle and directly across to see the triangulation of the area. Could the culprit be coming from the Philadelphia or Cherry Hill area?

Police Raid New York Home in Hunt for Possible Serial Killer

Published December 16, 2010 | FoxNews.com

Police and FBI agents investigating the discovery of four bodies near a remote New York beach raided a Long Island home Thursday where a missing New Jersey woman was last seen, sources tell FoxNews.com.

An official with the Suffolk County Police Department said a white sport utility vehicle was taken from an Oak Beach, N.Y., residence but declined to name the owner.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to an ongoing investigation, also said authorities returned Thursday to the secluded section of Ocean Parkway looking for more possible victims.

Police on the southern shore of Long Island found the badly decomposing remains of four women along a quarter-mile stretch of the parkway earlier in the week.

Authorities were conducting a "training exercise" on Saturday when they came across the first body. A police canine unit chose the area in response to a missing-person report made in May after Jersey City, N.J., resident Shonnan Gilbert disappeared. Three more bodies were discovered on Monday.

Gilbert was reportedly last seen alive on May 1. The woman worked as a prostitute and had arranged through the Craigslist classified ads website to meet a client on Fire Island -- about a mile from Oak Beach, a police source told FoxNews.com.

Authorities said they are hunting for a possible serial killer who may have dumped the women in area. The women's remains were found in different stages of decomposition, according to a police source, leading authorities to believe that they were dumped over the course of a year -- possibly even two years.

The women have not yet been identified. Police reportedly said that a preliminary view of the corpses suggests Gilbert was not among the four victims found.

Authorities have not released the name of the Oak Beach homeowner, but local news reports say Gilbert was last seen at the home of Joseph Brewer.

When FoxNews.com called a phone number registered to a Brewer family member, a man answered the phone and said "we have no information." He directed FoxNews.com to call the police with any questions.

The New York Post reports that Brewer invited Gilbert to his home for a party on May 1 after corresponding with her through Craigslist.com. The 24-year-old woman reportedly ran frantically from Brewer's home later that night, and banged on the door of neighbor Gustav Colletti, asking for help. Gilbert's mother also reportedly told the newspaper that her daughter called 911, saying, "He's trying to kill me! Help me!"

Meanwhile, the mother of a Maine woman who worked as a Craigslist escort and went missing from a hotel on Long Island said police informed her that her daughter may be one of the victims.

Twenty-two-year-old Megan Waterman, of Scarborough, Maine, was last seen in June in Hauppauge, N.Y., where she went with her boyfriend.

Waterman's mother, Lorraine Ela, told The Associated Press that a Scarborough detective told her he was "leaning toward one of the four victims being Megan, but he's not 100 percent guaranteed."

DECEMBER 16, 2010, 6:08 A.M. ET Man recounts driving missing NJ prostitute
Associated Press
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The man who drove a missing New Jersey prostitute on the day she disappeared says she was "delirious" and "irrational" when she called 911 from a client's house.

Authorities are trying to determine whether Shannon Gilbert is one of four women whose bodies were found dumped on a deserted Long Island beach highway.

Authorities suspect they may be dealing with a serial killer.

The driver, who didn't want his name used, told The Jersey City Journal he dropped the 24-year-old off in Oak Beach, N.Y., at about 2 a.m. on May 1.

He said Gilbert's client phoned him three hours later and said Gilbert was refusing to leave.

The man said he found Gilbert on the phone telling a 911 operator that a man was after her.

The driver told the newspaper he tried to get Gilbert leave but she said, "You guys are trying to kill me."

He said Gilbert eventually ran from the house.

NY police: Unlikely there's more beach victims
(AP) – 1 hour ago

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — It is unlikely that additional bodies will be found along a seaside road where the corpses of four women were discovered in recent days, a police official said Friday, emphasizing that detectives remain open to any scenario to explain their discovery.

Despite comments earlier in the week from Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer that it appeared possible the deaths of the four women were the result of a serial killer, Deputy Inspector William Neubauer told reporters Friday that detectives were not limiting themselves to any theory.

"We have no idea whatsoever whether we're dealing with a serial killer," he said. "Anything is possible at this point, because there's so many unanswered questions."

Neubauer said an expanded search of a 15-mile stretch of Ocean Parkway, where the bodies were found, was nearing its conclusion, adding "the likelihood of finding further remains is remote."

Detectives believe the four women died elsewhere and were then taken to the site, a narrow strip of land that divides the Great South Bay from the ocean. The parkway connects Jones Beach with several state- and town-run beaches to its east along the south shore of Long Island.

Neubauer reiterated Friday that police have no suspects and that it could take weeks to determine the identities of the four women. The New York City medical examiner is helping the identification process.

Police on Thursday eliminated a missing New Jersey woman last seen working as a Craigslist escort as a possible victim after comparing her medical records with those of the four victims.

Neubauer said Friday it also appeared unlikely that a missing Maine woman last seen working as an escort on Long Island was among the four, although there was no official confirmation ruling her out.

Gilgo Beach serial killer mystery: Maine prostitute Megan Waterman ID'd as one of the dead

DNA results were a match for Megan Waterman, Suffolk County police told Waterman's family. 

 A Maine prostitute missing since June has been identified as one of four bodies found on an isolated Long Island beach late last year, authorities said Wednesday.

The Suffolk County medical examiner identified Megan Waterman's body through a DNA match, police said.

Investigators say Waterman was the victim of foul play, but would not disclose the exact cause of death.

The three other bodies remain unidentified - for now, police said.

"We're very close to identifying the other three bodies," Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said.

Waterman's family was notified of the match early Wednesday, said her mother Lorraine Ela, of Portland, Maine.

She said she long suspected her 22-year-old daughter - last seen at a Hauppauge hotel - had met a violent end, but confirmation still came as a shock.

"I knew since she first went missing that something terrible had happened to her. I had that motherly instinct. I knew once they found those bodies it wasn't going to be a positive outcome, but I still held out hope," Ela said.

Waterman's body was among four sets of skeletal remains found on Gilgo Beach in December.

Investigators have said they believe a serial killer may be the culprit, though police said yesterday they have not made that determination.

Police initially suspected that a missing New Jersey hooker, Shannon Gilbert, was one of the victims, but she was quickly ruled out.

UPDATE: All four victims from Gilgo Beach identified

1.25.11
Maureen Brainard-Barnes, 25, of Norwich, Connecticut, Melissa Barthelemy, 24, of Erie County, New York, and Long Islander Amber Lynn Costello, 27, of North Babylon, have been identified as the final three women whose remains were found in Gilgo Beach in December. The information was released by the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) yesterday.

On Jan. 20th, SCPD announced at a press conference that Megan Waterman, 22, of Scarborough, Maine, was identified as one of four bodies found on Dec. 13, 2010.

The original discovery of skeletal remains was made during a police training exercise in an area where a person had been reported missing earlier in 2010.

The potential exists for this to be the work of a serial killer, and a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest in this case. The investigation is ongoing.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Just some interesting things from a Jan 29 2011 article

http://bayridgejournal.blogspot.com/2011/01/body-dump-at-gilgo-beach.html

The bodies of four young women, in varying stages of decomposition, had been dropped in a row along Ocean Parkway, east of Jones Beach State Park. As the victims were identified, it was learned that, like Gilbert, they had been sex workers in their 20s who advertised on Craigslist.  As was Gilbert, they were all exceptionally petite.  They all appeared to have been killed in a similar manner at another location and driven to the dump site.

Ocean Parkway is a 4-lane road connecting Jones Beach State Park with several state-and town-run beaches to the east along a narrow strip of land between the Great South Bay and the Atlantic.  In summer, it attracts a surfing crowd.

The dump site is on a remote, windy stretch of oceanfront about nine miles east of Jones Beach. There are no streetlights and very few homes there.   

The bodies were spaced about 500 feet apart. Police surmised that the killer drove up, opened the opposite car door and dumped the bodies into the brush. According to some reports, one or more of the bodies had been wrapped in burlap.

After Melissa Barthelmy disappeared on July 7, 2009, someone -- perhaps her killer -- made a series of six obscene phone calls to her teenaged sister on July 16, 19 and 23, using her cell phone, asking the sister if she knew that Melissa was a "whore".  Police tracked the caller from Massapequa to midtown Manhattan, where the signal died.
