    Amber Lynn Costello (who went by the working name "Carolina"), was last seen on the evening of Sept.2, 2010. According to her roomate, Dave Schaller, Amber had negotiated a "date" with a client that day for $1500 . According to Schaller, the client had phoned Amber 3 times that day, with the last call occuring at approximately 10:30 pm. Moments later, wearing jeans and a pink hoodie , Amber left the house. She was never seen again.

    On the morning of Sept. 3, Schaller phoned Amber's sister, Kimberly Overstreet, concerned because Amber had not returned home from her "date" the previous evening.

    Amber was never reported missing.

    On the last day friends saw Amber Lynn Costello alive, she walked out of her North Babylon home with these parting words: "If my sister calls, tell her I love her."

    It was Sept. 2, 2010.

    Internet sex forum wanted 'revenge'

    vs. Long Island hooker later murdered, dumped in burial grounds
    BY MATTHEW LYSIAK, HENRICK KAROLISZYN AND JOHN LAUINGER
    DAILY NEWS WRITERS
    Sunday, April 17, 2011

    Correction: An earlier version of this story included a photograph of a West Babylon home identified as the last as the last known residence of Amber Lynn Costello, a prostitute who was a victim of a suspected Long Island serial killer. In fact, the photo was of a neighboring home. The News regrets the error.

    Members of an Internet sex forum hatched a "revenge" plot against a Long Island hooker who was later murdered and dumped in a serial killer's burial ground, the Daily News has learned.

    So her profile pic, based on her posts to "mongolia," was at least a year plus old when she was murdered. It is the same picture that has been used in all the news articles.

    ETA: Too bad we can't see her last login date b/c her "mood" is "Sad"

    Yea strange huh. And the account seems like it has been spammed or hacked. The posts are like ads or something. On a whim, I requested a friendship just to see what happens.

    I found 4 ads under 2 numbers (verified by ad pic) posted on various sites. 3 of the 4 ads were posted as a "sisters" incall. The fourth was a single with explicit pictures. While the "sister" with Amber has not been conclusively identified by the media, I have a pretty good idea who that individual is. And, if it is who I think it is, I am admittedly appalled by their behavior. Esp the "story" they gave to the media. Just sayin...

    ETA ~ The two numbers backtraced as follows:

    1. 6XX-639-XXXX <- maps to within 2 miles of the New York Port Authority Bus Terminal.

    2. 6XX-624-XXXX<- maps to within 2 miles of Massapequa.

    MrsPC,

    Back in January when they announced the ID of the 4 bodies, they identified ALC as being from North Babylon (not West Babylon). I made a guess that because of all the neighborhood complaints at the house they were renting on Atlantic Ave in West Babylon, ALC may have been picked up from a new rental in North Babylon.

    I haven't done any digging on that. It really doesn't seem like a major detail, just that she might not have been living at the house where all the robbing issues were in West Babylon.

    I thought Costello lived on America Ave (not Atlantic) ?
