    I found more detailed data about Norfolk County and they shouldn't be so different in terms of statistics.

    And meaning no disrespect for our victims, Craiglist and Backpage prostitutes are for the most part one step above streetwalkers. We did all the research on their ads and the reviews that were written about them. They charged as low as $60 and rarely higher than $200. That is why we often heard mention that the girls had customers that they regarded as "regulars".
    Now I see my mistake. When I looked over the statistics, I had Norfolk County somehow in mind and messed it up with Nassau County. Thanks for clearing that up. Also to Elizabeth, who mentioned it, but I didn't get the point. But it's Nassau County.

    http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/36/36059.html
    According to the census, the average income is 40k not 75 to 95k. And the average household had 3.05 persons in 2010. Which means, most of the households are family and couple households, which is consistent what I said earlier.

    And because you try to "assume", Suffolk County is so different, lets take a look:
    3.09 persons per household average (means minimally more family/couple households)
    Average income: $35062 which in fact, according to the statistics, I can find under the 200% poverty line and also under the national average.
    http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/36/36103.html

    Surely, I can find bachelors with big incomes. Question is, are those enough to feed all prostitutes and their pimps. It's not that the GB4 were the only ones who tried the LI business. There is obviously hard competition, which is the reason they all put up new ads every day and took risks in the first place. And it is the reason for what you describe as underground business. The more competition, the more advertisement.

    And when it comes to what they charged, we know numbers for our victims. $250 an hour, $1000 a night. That doesn't exclude the occasional bj in a car for $60, fine, but you can't tell me, that someone from the Bronx drives out to LI for ONE $60 job. Not even from W.Babylon.

    I saw, there was something written, is that the company making those pictures? Can this company be found? The exact date would be interesting. Truthspider had an estimation between Jan and early April.

    It's funny because I remember back in the spring when we all looked at this picture I had the feeling that it couldn't possibly be what we were thinking.

    But, I suppose if our SK is retired or unemployed and lives nearby, it would make perfect sense that he could use any number of excuses as a cover for hanging out at the location of the remains. Maybe he enjoys sitting there and reading the paper or visiting the remains for god knows what...

    The north side of OP is this SK's personal sanctuary. I am willing to bet money the people around this SK, his family and friends, can't deny the truth to themselves, because they know that he hung out in the exact area often, hiding behind a lame excuse like fishing, birding, cleaning litter from the roadside/brush, clearing roadkill, or other park related activities . Maybe this is why so many of the remains around long island were discarded on park property: so he could revisit the location again and again for hours on end. "I come to this park to read". I bet the SK had a really really hard time in December when his sanctuary was discovered, and I bet the people that knew of this activity of his were perturbed too. In the case of CPH, the people close to him would then become extremely perturbed in April of 2011 when the news about the phone call broke...a tough couple of days that must have been.

    It reminds me of Timothy Bindner's hobby of repairing broken gravestones. The hobby gave him a perfect excuse to spend countless hours each week hanging out near his victims. It is believed that he buried his victims at the bottom of freshly dug graves, under the coffins that contained the corpse of the person listed on the gravestone.

    If he is a snowbird of some kind, going there and look for them would be his first act after back in the area. And since I think, he is alone, he wouldn't need too many excuses and as of yet, SCPD has to convince me, they would react on anything more subtle than carrying bodies around and asking the officers to lend a hand.

    Peter, all due respect, the more you post misleading information, the more you confuse the issue for anyone not familiar with the area. If you are going to attempt to sleuth this case thousands miles away, you at least have to get the simple stuff correct.

    You are irresponsibly quoting the "Per Capita Money Income" from the U.S. Cenus report as "Average Income". Per Capita Money Income is defined as taking the total amount being earned by everyone in the area and dividing that number by the total number of people residing in that area. For instance, if a single mom with three children earns $80,000, her household's per capita income is only $20,000 ($80,000 divided by four people).

    If you would like to correctly quote the average income you are better off looking at those same links that you posted and right below the numbers you quoted you will see that Nassau County has a median household income of $92,221 and Suffolk County is $82,984. As you can see, these figures are almost DOUBLE the National average (not under the 200% poverty line as your last post misleads everyone into thinking when they read it).

    Even Wikipedia got this one right when they quote Nassau and Suffolk counties as having among the highest income levels in the Country;

    Highest-income counties in the United States

    Okay, fine. I bow to your knowledge. Now lets agree than we can ignore anything else because Suffolk County has enough money to feed all prostitutes of the world.

    Goathair,

    Do you have any more info you might be able to share on the sniper? I have a gut feeling about this one. The burlap/camo connection is really strong IMO.

    Also IMO, with that whole 6 degrees of separation, I'd bet someone on this board knows someone who knows the SK.

    I'd love to know more about the stories you've heard. Normally snipers would be thoroughly vetted for any hint of a psychological disorder or "kill for the thrill" mentality, so if there are some things you've heard suggesting this person is truly unbalanced, it would definitely stand out and might be a more recently-acquired, undiagnosed PTSD-like situation.

    Ah, you have a point about the north side of OP. To me this right here means he is more likely to be from Suffolk County and gets on OP from Robert Moses Causeway. If he were from Nassau he would come from Wantagh Parkway. And if he came from Wantagh he'd have to do a u-turn to get to the north side of the hwy. Why do that? Would be easier to just do his dumping on the south side (just as overgrown with bush).

    The other stuff about the beach being his playground - it's everyone's playground. It would be very hard to call someone a SK simply because they use the beach. That would point the finger at almost everyone.

    As for the truck. I would think that LE would have found that truck by now. It is a very uncommon looking truck. I'm discounting it for now.

    From your link for Nassau County (which I don't think the perp is from, btw):

    Median household income, 2009 $92,221

    Here's Suffolk County's:
    Median household income, 2009 $82,984

    I don't understand why most here are so quick to eliminate Brewer as the SK of the 4 prostitutes. I still believe it's him. I do think the other victims were killed by someone else for sure. And I feel certain that Brewer disposed of Gilbert elsewhere knowing she was linked directly to him.
