When the biggest story in years broke this month in the unsolved Long Island Serial Killer case, few noticed that an online community of crime buffs and two filmmakers sparked the revelation.
An escort claimed Thursday that disgraced ex-Suffolk County Police Chief James Burke paid her for sex during a cocaine-fueled house party in Oak Beach five years ago. The woman held a news conference to discuss the allegations along with Miller Place-based attorney John Ray, who represents the family of Shannan Gilbert, whose disappearance from the seaside community in May 2010 led to the discovery of the Long Island Serial Killer’s nearby dumping grounds and 10 sets of human remains. Ray stated the new information from his client implicates Burke in not only Gilbert's demise, but all those victims.
Suffolk County police haven’t publicly named a suspect in the Long Island Serial Killer case, but someone in the department may have accused a former local jailer in an anonymous internet post.
The mother of a woman whose disappearance led to the discovery of the Long Island Serial Killer’s dumping ground has been murdered by another one of her daughters in upstate New York, authorities said. Sarra Gilbert, 27, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of her 52-year-old mother, Mari Gilbert, who was found dead in Sarra’s Ellenville apartment at 2:15 p.m. Saturday, Ellenville village police said.
The New Jersey woman's disappearance led to the discovery of the Long Island Serial Killer's dumping ground, but police do not believe that she is a victim of foul play. Her family disagrees.
Shannan Gilbert's family say that she was murdered, but police have said she drowned.
Services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday at Amityville Cemetery, 55 Harrison Ave, in Amityville.
State Troopers reversed course Friday and said the suspect they arrested on drug and vehicular assault charges was trying to avoid a crash.
