    Five years after the first of the remains of 10 bodies were discovered on Gilgo Beach, Suffolk’s Deputy Police Commissioner Tim Sini, Chief of Department Stuart Cameron, a former K-9 unit commander and homicide detectives conducted a “review” of the scene.

    Suffolk police officials on Friday toured the site where the first four sets of human remains were discovered along Ocean Parkway in Gilgo Beach.

    “Anniversaries create opportunities,” Sini said. “We think it’s important to let the public know we are doing everything we can to solve these murders.”

    “FBI to have enhanced role in long-unsolved Gilgo Beach murders…”

    “FBI to have enhanced role in long-unsolved Gilgo Beach murders; some ask what took so long”.


    Possibly of interest from the article, BBM (other than the already-known Burke saga):

    "Among the critics is a Craigslist sex worker, like many of the Gilgo victims. She told PIX11 News that evidence she has might point to the killers had been ignored by law enforcement in the past, and that she’s cautiously optimistic about the new changes.”
    -and(BBM)-

    The woman tried to convince local police to hear evidence she’d gathered that might point to a killer. She said she also tried to get federal agents to consider her information. When she did, she said, “I just felt like I was shut down in every direction."

    Escort Linked to NY Serial Killer Case May Have Been Strangled
    NBC-10
    February 12, 2016

    The New Jersey escort whose 2010 disappearance led to the discovery of 11 butchered bodies on a Long Island beach may have been strangled, a newly released autopsy report found.

    [...]

    "Michael Baden comes to disturbing conclusions," family attorney John Ray said.

    Family members said the findings — which showed no evidence Gilbert died of natural causes, a drug overdose or by drowning — should spur authorities to open a murder investigation into Gilbert's death, which has never been ruled a homicide.

    "We're demanding they activate a homicide investigation for Shannan Gilbert," Ray said.

    Pathologist offers new theory on Shannan Gilbert's death
    By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
    on February 12, 2016 at 1:20 PM, updated February 12, 2016 at 5:36 PM

    [...]

    Baden says he reviewed a medical examiners' reports and photographs sent to him by John Ray, the Gilbert family attorney. He said he also examined skeletal remains, finding Gilbert's larynx and parts of the hyoid bone in the neck missing.

    "These structures, the larynx and the hyoid bone, are often fractured during homicidal manual strangulation," he wrote.

    There is insufficient information to determine a definite cause of death, he added.

    Autopsy: Slain New Jersey sex worker possibly strangled
    FRANK ELTMAN, The Associated Press
    Posted: Friday, February 12, 2016, 5:04 PM

    [...]

    Although detectives have long maintained that Gilbert's death is unrelated to the killings of 10 others along Ocean Parkway in suburban New York, John Ray, an attorney for the Gilbert family, said Friday that an independent autopsy suggests the 24-year-old Jersey City, New Jersey, woman may have been strangled.

    [...]

    Ray subsequently asked noted forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to conduct an independent review.

    Baden found that while "there is insufficient information to determine a definite cause of death," the autopsy findings "are consistent with homicidal strangulation." Baden's letter to Ray also said there is no evidence "that she died of natural disease, of a drug overdose or of drowning."

    Ray said at a press conference with Gilbert's mother and sisters that he has requested the Suffolk County homicide squad re-activate the investigation into the woman's death.

    Police Commissioner Timothy Sini said in a statement Friday that detectives are waiting to review Baden's findings. Sini announced in December that the department has brought in FBI investigators to assist local detectives with the probe.

    Craigslist escort Shannan Gilbert may have been tortured before death: autopsy
    Posted 2:29 PM, February 12, 2016, by Mary Murphy, Updated at 05:52pm, February 12, 2016
    PIX 11

    [...]

    "Almost all of the skeletal bones were recovered and appeared normal. There was no evidence of trauma. However, the larynx was missing and only the body of the hyoid bone was found; the two greater horns of that neck bone were missing. These structures, the larynx and the hyoid bone, are often fractured during homicidal manual strangulation. My examination of the recovered body of the hyoid bone, after it had been anthropologically de-fleshed, showed a roughness at the margins where the separated bones had been attached."

    Baden found no evidence to support the theory that drugs might have caused her to fall into the water.

    Baden concluded, "There is insufficient information to determine a definite cause of death, but the autopsy findings are consistent with strangulation."

    New Shannan Gilbert autopsy reveals ‘disturbing’ findings in Gilgo Beach case, medical examiner says

    [...]

    “There is no evidence whatsoever that Shannan Gilbert died a natural death,” former New York City medical examiner Michael Baden wrote in the report. “There is no evidence whatsoever that Shannan Gilbert died from a drug overdose, and there is no evidence whatsoever that Shannan Gilbert died from drowning.”

    [...]

    “I know there’s a lot of coverups I don’t know who’s involved . . . I believe it’s all connected,” said Stevie Smith, one of Gilbert’s sisters. “I’m angry at the cop who took so long to get to the scene, I’m angry at the residents of the gated community, I’m angry at the driver who was hired to protect her and I’m angry at anyone who knows the truth and isn’t saying anything.”

    This is the case from 1979 that the article from Vice mentions involving Burke. Burke claimed he was only a witness to the murder and testified against his friends.

    Article from fred&edna previous post http://www.vice.com/read/ghosts-of-s...-serial-killer is referencing the below case:
