    NY - UID Victims of Long Island Craig's List Killer - General Discussion

    Nicknamed "Peaches" by a detective her torso was found in a large plastic container in the woods ten years ago. She is thought to be under 30, possibly a teen. African-American with a light complexion. Scar on abdomen, possibly a c-section scar.

    The killer had also left one important clue: a tattoo of a heart-shaped peach with a tear drop was discovered just above her left breast. http://wcbstv.com/topstories/local_story_070211403.html
    They have found the tattoo artist and he remembered the girl, but there was no paperwork.
    He remembers her saying that she was from NY and visiting friend in Bristol about a year before her death.

    NY - Could these two UID cases be related?

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/151ufny.html

    and

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/605ufny.html

    Even though they were found almost ten years apart, the fact that they both had tattoos of fruit on their breasts is too creepy, not to mention they were both possibly of the same race, and found in the same county in New York, and their bodies were dealt with in a similar manner. I wonder if these two women knew each other or were possibly related, seeing as they had similar tattoos on opposite breasts?

    NY - UID Victims of Long Island Craig's List Killer - General Discussion

    I held out on posting this because I thought she would be quickly ID'd as Shannon Gilbert. However, police say that the fifth victim is not Shannon.

    Since the victim remains unidentified, it seems that there should be a thread here (in addition to the thead in the Crimes in the News forum).

    A police spokeswoman said Thursday that authorities determined the remains were not those of Shannan Gilbert of Jersey City, N.J.

    Here are additional details regarding the discovery:
    The remains of a fifth body were located west of Cedar Beach, Long Island, approximately one mile from where the other corpses were discovered in December, according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer.

    The remains turned out to be Shannan Gilbert after all.

    http://www.examiner.com/city-hall-in...rial-killer-ny

    ETA: However, this is the only article I can find that says that it is Shannan. All others that I can find indicate that it is not Shannan.

    The comments on the bottom say that the article is incorrect and the victim is NOT Shannon Gilbert. I dont know how to post links but I checked Newsday(local paper) just now and it still also says its not her. Strange. Someones info is wrong.

    Such a glaring mistake, they should be ashamed and eager to correct it.

    Three more bodies have been found in the Gilgo Beach area, bringing the total of bodies found to eight.

    ... and BTW, according to this article, the fifth victim was male:

    Last week, a fifth still unidentified boy was discovered in rugged underbrush. Four women were found nearby in December. They had worked as prostitutes and escorts advertising on Craigslist.

    This story does not say whether the 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th are male or female.

    Eight sets of human remains have been found in neighbouring Suffolk County since December, CNN reported. Police have said the remains may have been in the area for more than two years. Four bodies have been identified as women who advertised prostitution services on websites.

    On the other Blog spots for this topic and I admit I didn't read all the pages,people were asking how could the UnSub/SK know the victims family numbers and call.As well as using a pc and not be traced?

    I've some thoughts.According to the Police Profile the SK is above average intelligence.So as to locating victims family.Simple take the victim's cell phone and look at the call memory.Sure no last names maybe but logic would tell you the most frequent in out calls would be family.The SK simply buys a burn phone using cash and starts calling numbers.When a person answers they simply say"Hi I am a friend of so and so I've not seen her in a week is she ok?"Sooner or later a family member will answer and start talking.Once done with his tormenting call he tosses the burn cell phone in the trash.As for the pc use.A person good with computers would know how to bounce off so many servers to be untraceable or know that wireless is everywhere.Simply drive around until you find one not pass word protected or go to any number of internet cafe's or coffee shops.

    Lastly I am going to add to the profile.If the SK did in fact call and torment then that tells me he also is a sadist as well as a sociopath.He gets off striking fear into people and his victims.I would say each victim was tortured before their death.Not only does he need to strike fear but he needs to be and display that he is in total control as well as superior to everyone around him.As has been suggested it also wouldn't surprise me if the SK is super religious to a fanatical degree.If this is the case add to just above and his deep need to punish sinfulness and the families that raised them.

    I would say it's safe to say the massive media attention and the fact it's National News will draw him into doing more.He loves the attention as I said makes him feel superior strikes fear and that he is in total control.If religious to a fanatical dregee he sees him self doing God's work.

    According to authorities, the two most recently found victims have been there too long to have been likely victims of the Craigslist killer. Police are speculating that they might be victims of serial killer Joel Rifkin.

    Also, one of the victims is believed to be a child.
