    Could definitely be an element of order to it. Note how they were each spaced so precisely apart, each contained in their own little burlap cocoon. I think he wanted to be able to ride past and pick each individual out by sight. There's Maureen (evil grin), oh, and there's Melissa (slobbery evil sicko grin)...

    If they're using the conventional position, the woman is very vulnerable. The killer could have his hands around her neck before she even knew what was happening.

I believe it had some sort of religious significance where it was meant to "chastise" the bodies of these women who were prostitutes - sort of like the rituals of groups like Opus Dei with their flagellation rituals. (Nothing personal against Opus Dei - that is just what came to my mind.) The first 4 bodies that were found, and the 4 bodies in AC just have a "ritualistic" feel to them. With the paltry amount of information we have, the other bodies that have been found do not seem to fit the same mold. I can't help but believe at least all of the LI murders are connected, but that means he changed up his MO at some point. How much longer is it going to take to get an ID on some of the other victims??
    I thought they had decided the AC murders probably weren't connected?

    He could just have burlap bags around all the time -- clamming, for instance, or large bags of animal feed. It seems to be pretty common around that area. The fact that some of them are in black plastic leads me to believe that it's just convenience.

    I haven't heard enough about the bodies to get a feel for whether there's any ritual or whatever involved. They haven't even said whether the bodies in the bags were dismembered. We know some of the others were.

    I thought he sort of lumbered in that video as well. I need to watch it again. Was that the one where he also leaned heavily on the storm door?

    This is one I had never seen before and it seems to be neither the one with the wife's interview, the one of him in the pink shirt or the one where he is in his doorway with the screen door half open.

    I so want to see both of the newsday/channel 12 videos but they seem to be subscription only. Specifically,the one where he is half in and half out his door with the weird picture of the woman, behind him on the wall and the one of him in the pink shirt. Man I wish someone could post them for just long enough for everyone to analyze them.

    Especially if he'd spent time courting them and building up trust on previous dates.

    I wonder if there was a serious accident and if the SK was laid up recuperating, for a time, with a live-in nurse (spouse) by his side.
    I don't know if it was rumor or speculation, but someone said something about Doc getting these injuries in a car accident? If that's correct, I'd love to know what year that was...

    The deliberate spacing of the bodies still makes me wonder if LI/AC are connected. I think the police have hinted that they no longer believe there's a connection, but I don't know how final that conclusion is.

    When observing very closely, one sees that the doctor not only appears dishevled and wobbly but he seems to resemble someone who may have undergone some significant weight loss. He has the look of someone who lost weight over a relatively short period of time. (very loose skin under his chin, fatty breasts and a noticeable muffin top...yes, I have looked at this video at least three times now :-)

    Years ago, an amazing sleuth found infinite details about a shady character by finding a website with her comments on a stomach stapling procedure. It would not surprise me if the doc has a history of online exchanges.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERYTHING IN THIS POST IS OPINION. THERE'S NOT A VERIFIED FACT IN IT.

    I asked a friend whose mother lives in Islip about an accident, and the mother got back to me with many rumors. It could be described as "lots of good dirt"; she used the word "coverup" a couple of times. And so far I can't validate or disprove any of it. I can't even find that anything was released to the public. I'm about ready to pay for a subscription to Newsday so I can go trawling in the archives.

    If she's even partly right, though, it predated all of this, even AC, and it all tended to exonerate the doctor.

    One thing she did say that I thought was interesting is that she says the gated part of Oak Beach is where a bunch of important Long Island people live, several of them connected to the DA's office, LE, county government executives, hospital managers, etc. Her perception is that if the killer lives there, it will never come out to the public. They take care of their own.

    As I said, this is all her opinion.

    you guys, I am reading the rifkin book on kindle and i have to tell you..rifkin is exactly the type of perp I think of ...he would hang out with these girls...he says the hookers always had to take care of their drug fixes first...especially if it was like overnight,

    these were street girls..but in a certain way , Rifkin would lie in wait...pay for dope..drive them around...run errands...

    then wham...

    he planned it all along...he knew he was going to get around to it...

    he was a guy who was a complete utter misfit/failure socially, but with hookers he could have the contact and attention he craved.

    in a way it kind of ruins your idea of the SK as a charming sociopath....how about a not-so-charming sociopath?

    reminding you of anyone?

    That is why I thought the information that peterf14 was discussing in the comments at the link below was so interesting.... some sort of huge internal rifts and corruption that involves all sorts of seedy characters who are well heeled and connected. Some of the people involved are related to LE. I could see a situation where a dirty cop, or one who was involved via a coverup would have made the call to SG's mom, claiming to be PH - stupidly thinking it would misidrect and throw the investigation off path.
