Honestly, if that would be all, I wouldn't have dared to say anything about ethnicity. A one point profile is in my opinion too wobbly to speak at all.
    Ok, so "bro" was just an example you picked, no particular reason. I understand you feel there are other reasons to profile LISK as African-American. I had just been wondering if the supposed speech during that call was one of them. That aside, I also do not understand how "calling the pimp in the first place" and a "dump site with drive-by revisibility" point to race of any type? But that's okay, it's not your job to convince me.

    On a side note: I have worked with people from all over the world, as is pretty common in IT. 4 people stand out in my memory as using the word "bro" all the time.. 2 were Caucasian, long-haired rocker/heavy metal types, (I love any excuse to use that smiley) -one from Texas and one a surfer-type Californian. The other two: one was from India and the other was Iranian. How's that for stereotypical speech?

    I am not a surfer, and know nothing about them either really. But perhaps you could invest in some radar device to protect your head while diving...like a fish-finder for surfers.

    As a matter of fact, it was a little obstacle in the way. Amanda and Terri both told, the caller was some drunk white dude. Everybody bought that part. But as you showed, the means to identify ethnicity by speech are ambivalent. Means, the guy on the phone could have been the same African-American and smart enough. It's pretty obvious, being drunk was a show act, so he was anyway posing on the phone as something he wasn't.

    It's not that hard, only something, nobody has to think about that often normally.
    Imagine, you are a sick sadistic serial killer, who wants to psychological torture people on the phone. To call the little sister makes entirely sense for you. She loved your last victim, she is vulnerable and her youth makes her even more vulnerable. You can go off on her begging and crying. All is good in your world (please stay in the imagination, you are such a sicko). Okay, you kill the line, you fill great, you feel powerful, in control.
    Now call the pimp. A pimp, by job description, makes his living by using women. He sends them to prostitute themselves and get the money they get for the tricks they pulled. He has to have to a little degree a sociopathic mindset to to do so. Not that much as a fully blown serial killer and not a psychopathic one as most SKs show. But some kind of a little bit similarity. So, you, a psychopathic sadist with the urge to torture and control, call a pimp, a low level sociopath, who is only limited able to feel psychological torture at all and who doesn't really care about the woman you killed beyond the point, where he thinks, he needs a new one to keep his income up. You try to torture a guy, who sent her out to sleep with dozens of men, getting beaten, getting strangled and what not else? Iamgine, you are a psychopathic whack job, who understands this all so well ... would you call the guy? You can't expect to psychological torture this guy. The best, you can expect is a "thank you, I wanted to replace her anyway against a newer model". And you know that, even before you pick up the phone! So why?
    The only explanation is, you, the killer, are not just a sadistic whack job from handbook 101, but had other motives than the psychological torture. But that leaves a limited number of motives and the stereotype FBI profile "sex offenders kill in the own ethnicity" doesn't apply anymore.

    Same thing with the drive-by dump site. A psychpath/sadist, like for example Ridgway or Bundy, those revisited their victims, spent hours there, masturbated, relived the murder, all of that. For them, every single victim was in a way important.
    For a drive-by re-visitor, the single victim is not important. The place, his creation, is important. That is, what symbolizes his success for him. Not the single victim, but his creation in total. The victims are symbols for something he hates and here ha has his own little memorial for the victories over those symbols. It's an entirely different mindset.

    That's such a nice example for subcultures taking words from each other. The lower the intellectual level, the lower the ability to express themselves and therefore the higher the need to take over terms from other subcultural slangs. And the Indians were probably not in India? I worked with project teams from India and they take up speech patterns like sponges. Adaption appears to them to be a sign of politeness. A thing, that obviously comes from their culture.
    A Texan? Dude, I would so have expected "dude" ...
    But now seriously, what you tell here, is basically prove for the ambivalence of such speech patterns. We hear such keywords, such patterns and we assume. Imagine, you would have heard those guys on a phone, but never seen them, what would you think then?

    No such thing on the market. But (quoting myself from one of my books) when it comes to surfers and sharks, my sympathies are sometimes clearly on the shark's side.

Most of these type workers are unemployable for reasons of alcoholism, drug addiction, or other antisocial behavior. Also, "special event permits" would tell us what was going on in both areas at that time. There could have been bike rallies, concerts, or even a circus, all would need a "special event permit" from the city or county they were in. Again, that permit would contain contact info for the event organizer.
    That helps only, if we could narrow down the construction projects he could have worked on and as of yet, I haven't found a way to do that. That's the reason, why I consider looking at spaces, we can assume, he has passed in a certain time pattern, like traffic cams on the Causeway.

    Guess we're way off-topic from the intended subject matter of this thread, but I think it was already that way when I first responded to you. If this should be moved elsewhere, apologies. Not sure of the rules when a thread veers off topic.

    First, thanks for elaborating on your reasoning about the dump site and making the calls and race. I believe I understand where you're coming from now. Still not sure I agree, but again, I respect your experience and your opinion.

    We could all benefit from a little more politeness . I noticed some of that sponge thing as well, as I worked with a ton of people here in the US from India and many places in the Middle East, as well as other places. But perhaps that is more a human nature thing than a specific cultural trait. Whether a conscious effort or not, to assimilate into or try and feel more a part of an unfamiliar culture seems universally human to me. If I found myself living and working in China all of a sudden, I bet I would be sprinkling what I thought were common native words into my speaking as well.
    The Indian "bro" sayer was in Dallas, TX, and the Cali-surfer guy and Iranian "bros" were in Atlanta, GA- go figure! But that reinforces my point.

    Quote Originally Posted by Peter Brendt View Post

    That's interesting, I'd never assume a Non-Texan to think Texans used the word "dude". "Yeehaw", "y'all" (guilty of that one) or the like I would expect, as it seems many people think Texans all live on ranches, wear cowboy boots and hats, drive a pickup truck and love country music.
    I'm a Texan and probably only ever really used the word "dude" as a teen. This was a time it seemed most everyone my age (including myself) also had the annoying habit to insert the word "like" into their speaking as much as possible. For example: "Dude! I'm like so ready for the party this weekend! I'm like really excited, it's like going to be like so cool." Embarrassing to even think about.

    I believe this terminology was part of the Valley-type talk that also originated in California? I've never even been to California. This way of speaking was very common here at that time though, and I'd assume it spread other places as well. Someone speaking on the phone to me at that time might have assumed incorrectly I was from California. It took me years to break that annoying "like" habit, and an occasional improper "like" still slips in once in a while.

    Likewise, though many people assume there is a typical Texan accent, I've never met a new person who thought I was Texan. Many southern people have asked if I was from "up north". And I have been asked multiple times if I am European and have just lost most of my native accent. That always threw me for a loop. Perhaps I'm just a weirdo and speak oddly.

    BBM. Again, that was my point exactly.

    But, FWIW, I still would never think your example term "bro" meant African-American. Perhaps it's just where I have lived, but I cannot recall that ever being a commonly used term by any African-American person I have ever known. It seems so very, very Caucasian to me. But now I'm the one doing the stereotyping.
    But, if the wording on the phone calls ("I know where you be at") did not greatly influence your decision to profile LISK as AA, then it's all moot. (I know it wasn't the sole reason, of course) But perhaps it is a good reminder to us all that stereotyping in general is a bad thing, and humans come (and speak, and visually present, and behave, etc.) in many differing varieties.

    I agree, maybe a new thread.

    The main reason, why the calls are important were, that Amanda an Terri both described the caller as drunk white dude, which was pretty much 180 degrees to my profile. But since, as we figured over the last few posts, speech patterns don't give a clear connection to ethnicity and the drunk part was anyway a show act, I am so free now with the other points. (now I had to do it!)

    FYI, Amanda never said that the caller was/sounded drunk, quite the opposite.
    here is what I hhave collected from newsreports on the calls to Melissa Barthelemy's sister:

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/arc.../t-159991.html

    The seven Jul/Aug 2009 phonecalls, made by the killer to Melissa's little sister Amanda.
    Quotes:

    According to newsreports, there were seven calls in all.
    The caller I.D. displayed the number of Melissa’s missing cellphone
    The killer always phoned in the evenings,
    The killer always spoke for less than three minutes.
    In all phonecalls the caller only wanted to talk to Melissa Barthelemy's little sister Amanda.
    One time MB's mother answered, and the killer hung up as soon as he heard her voice.
    Whoever was calling knew what Amanda looked like.
    Police traced some of the calls to midtown Manhattan; Times Square, and Madison Square Garden, and another to Massapequa.
    The killer sounded like an "older white guy"
    Authorities tell CBS News he's likely white, between 25 and 40, is intelligent and street-smart
    The killers voice was self-assured, a low voice, calmly mocking MB's sister.
    "He was calm, in control," "He knew what he was doing." Amanda says.
    "The voice on the other end was calm and bland, and never yelled or laughed" her mother, Lynn Barthelemy, said.
    The killers was vulgar, mocking and insulting, according to the dead woman's mother, Lynn Barthelemy.

    ''If you accept it was the killer calling, he certainly had feelings of anger towards prostitutes.'' Mr. Cohen, Lynn Barthelemy's lawyer, said.

    The calls abruptly stopped in August 2009 after a Buffalo TV station revealed their existence.


    2009 calls from the killer, using MB's cell phone.

    7 calls were made, Belowe are the 4 known dates, the last 3 calls has not been disclosed):


    Thurs July 16, 2009: first call
    Sun July 19, 2009:
    Thurs July 23, 2009
    Wed Aug 26, 2009: last call ( 01:00 am, lasted ca 40 seconds ) traced to the Times Square area.



    SK Phonecalls content:

    Thise are quotes from some of the phonecalls:

    “Is this Melissa’s little sister?”

    “I hear you’re a half-breed.”

    'Do you know what your sister is doing? She's a whore.' (1st call according to LB's atty Steve Cohen)

    “Are you gonna be a whore like your sister?”

    "Do you think you'll ever see to her again?," .... "You won't. I killed her," (after having sex with her, he claimed Aug. 26, 2009, 1AM )
    In the final call, the man described in graphic detail to the victim's sister what he had done sexually to Barthelemy, Cohen said.

    And according to LB's atty Steve Cohen, in Dec 2011 48 Hours:

    The killer also said that he know where Amanda lives and that he might come after her.

    and that; "The killer said sexually exposit things as to what he had done to Melissa, and he said sexually

    exposit things as to what he was going to do to Amanda"



    In the link I posted you can also find info on the phonecalls that Melissa's boyfriend, Johnny Terry recived.

    Now, and here I am trying to convince people, the guy wasn't drunk ... that's so nice! Thanks a lot! That solves most of my problems with those calls.

This is consistent with certain mostly African-American congregations in the wider area.
    As opposed to all of the white congregations where prostitution is encouraged?

You try to torture a guy, who sent her out to sleep with dozens of men, getting beaten, getting strangled and what not else? Iamgine, you are a psychopathic whack job, who understands this all so well ... would you call the guy? You can't expect to psychological torture this guy. The best, you can expect is a "thank you, I wanted to replace her anyway against a newer model". And you know that, even before you pick up the phone! So why?
    The only explanation is, you, the killer, are not just a sadistic whack job from handbook 101, but had other motives than the psychological torture. But that leaves a limited number of motives and the stereotype FBI profile "sex offenders kill in the own ethnicity" doesn't apply anymore.

    Same thing with the drive-by dump site. A psychpath/sadist, like for example Ridgway or Bundy, those revisited their victims, spent hours there, masturbated, relived the murder, all of that. For them, every single victim was in a way important.
    For a drive-by re-visitor, the single victim is not important. The place, his creation, is important. That is, what symbolizes his success for him. Not the single victim, but his creation in total. The victims are symbols for something he hates and here ha has his own little memorial for the victories over those symbols. It's an entirely different mindset.


    With regards to him calling the pimp, you are assuming the SK was aware that he was calling her pimp. I doubt she had him stored in her phone as "my pimp", especially given the fact if she were arrested for prositution, they police will want to know who her pimp is. So it is unlikely that he was stored in her phone as pimp, daddy...etc because they are all well known synonyms for "pimp".

    She probably had him stored as some informal term for "boyfriend" or "baby". Some of these girls, especially off craigslist, do have husbands, boyfriends..etc that may/may not know what their significant other is up to. If one of the last 5 calls was from someone labeled as "boyfriend"..etc, and he saw this, that may be an extension of the psychological torture exhibited to the sister.

    It's not that hard, only something, nobody has to think about that often normally.
    Imagine, you are a sick sadistic serial killer, who wants to psychological torture people on the phone. To call the little sister makes entirely sense for you. She loved your last victim, she is vulnerable and her youth makes her even more vulnerable. You can go off on her begging and crying. All is good in your world (please stay in the imagination, you are such a sicko). Okay, you kill the line, you fill great, you feel powerful, in control.
    Now call the pimp. A pimp, by job description, makes his living by using women. He sends them to prostitute themselves and get the money they get for the tricks they pulled. He has to have to a little degree a sociopathic mindset to to do so. Not that much as a fully blown serial killer and not a psychopathic one as most SKs show. But some kind of a little bit similarity. So, you, a psychopathic sadist with the urge to torture and control, call a pimp, a low level sociopath, who is only limited able to feel psychological torture at all and who doesn't really care about the woman you killed beyond the point, where he thinks, he needs a new one to keep his income up. You try to torture a guy, who sent her out to sleep with dozens of men, getting beaten, getting strangled and what not else? Iamgine, you are a psychopathic whack job, who understands this all so well ... would you call the guy? You can't expect to psychological torture this guy. The best, you can expect is a "thank you, I wanted to replace her anyway against a newer model". And you know that, even before you pick up the phone! So why?
    The only explanation is, you, the killer, are not just a sadistic whack job from handbook 101, but had other motives than the psychological torture. But that leaves a limited number of motives and the stereotype FBI profile "sex offenders kill in the own ethnicity" doesn't apply anymore.

    Same thing with the drive-by dump site. A psychpath/sadist, like for example Ridgway or Bundy, those revisited their victims, spent hours there, masturbated, relived the murder, all of that. For them, every single victim was in a way important.
    For a drive-by re-visitor, the single victim is not important. The place, his creation, is important. That is, what symbolizes his success for him. Not the single victim, but his creation in total. The victims are symbols for something he hates and here ha has his own little memorial for the victories over those symbols. It's an entirely different mindset.


    With regards to him calling the pimp, you are assuming the SK was aware that he was calling her pimp. I doubt she had him stored in her phone as "my pimp", especially given the fact if she were arrested for prositution, they police will want to know who her pimp is. So it is unlikely that he was stored in her phone as pimp, daddy...etc because they are all well known synonyms for "pimp".

    She probably had him stored as some informal term for "boyfriend" or "baby". Some of these girls, especially off craigslist, do have husbands, boyfriends..etc that may/may not know what their significant other is up to. If one of the last 5 calls was from someone labeled as "boyfriend"..etc, and he saw this, that may be an extension of the psychological torture exhibited to the sister.
    Okay, you have an obviously drug addicted prostitute ... you find in her phone a "Baby", a "Terri", a "Willie", whatever. Imagine you are an ORGANIZED SK, what do you do? Two scenarios, either you can get the information out of the victim, if she is still alive or you get information by more stalking. The give away is the line "Are you her little sister?" Because chances are, Amanda was as "Amanda" in the phone. Additionally, he knew, at this point at least, Amanda was mixed ethnicity. So, how? Either from her sister or from pics on the phone or from more stalking. But someone, who does his homework that meticulous doesn't call on a spontaneous idea. So, chances are, he knew very well, who and what Terri was. I mean, seriously, which normal bf would be happy if his gf goes out all the time to have sex with other men? One could consider this some kind of give away.

    It may have been picked up by a local station since she was last seen in the Bronx and the calls originated from Manhattan.

    didn't need to be in Buffalo area

    he probably simply googled her name to see if there were missing person's reports, or anything in the news about her being missing...
