    Article: Police ID Long Island Serial Killer

    What is up with this article?

    "The Nassau County Police Department has identified a suspect in a series of sex worker murders.
    After revising the profile and canvassing Long Islandís south shore area with a new batch of questions for residents, police uncovered a promising new lead."

    .....

    "Police sources confirm the profile depicts a white male, 30-50 years old, small stature, long-time area resident, formerly or currently in law enforcement and/or medical field, owner of two or more vehicles, living alone or with an elderly relative, secret bisexual orientation, multiple prescriptions for erectile dysfunction drugs, no children."

    Weekly World News is a supermarket tabloid.You know the one that usually has pictures of Bigfoot, werewolves or something similar on the front page. Their website has an "alien" section.

    Also, what do we know about this "Alien"? Maybe we should start a new thread to sleuth him.

    All I've been able to find on the alien is that he drives a silver hovercraft.

    You know as far as anyone knows if this perp is LE prior or present he could have been questioned by a reporter about the LISK and the perp actually answered this paper truthful because.....nobody would really take them serious because of the tabloid nature of the paper.

    Since some man called the family of a victimm, posing as the doctor and claiming that she was in his rehab center, the theory of a medical person might be correct. Or, at least someone who had knowledge of the neighbors where bodies were found.

    I know of someone who had to much knowledge! Actually, quite a few of us know his name.... Sadly without the LISK site I fear we may not hear much from him any longer...

    If you are talking about Fluke, I think he was batty full of it. He may have mentioned that ppl need to look in the marsh, yes. That is an easy guess to make many have said that. He threw out too many easter eggs instead of just coming out and stating the facts that "he knew".
    way to unstable posting for my taste

    was this article complete bs or based on a kernel of truth? Notice its nassau not suffolk. i'm not so quick to brush off this tabloid as a joke story. did nassau have their own investigation? aside from the ex Le this could match 57 couldn't it?

    Ok, I nearly had a heart attack seeing this headline posted on page one. Sheesh

    Still holding out hope, though! It would be a spectacular coup for the fbi now that they're involved, wouldn't it?

    The thing is they may know who the SK is. According to this April 2011 article, the POLICE HAD A SUSPECT!

    "Police believe they know the identity of the Long Island Ripper, The Post has learned.

    Cops on Long Island are “looking at somebody,” said a law-enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation.

    He refused to elaborate.

    The stunning revelation comes as police are exploring a possible link between the serial killer — suspected of dumping the bodies of eight victims along a remote Suffolk beachfront — and the grisly murders of four hookers in Atlantic City in 2006."
    http://nypost.com/2011/04/08/cops-ey...sland-murders/

    The police may have known who the killer is since 2011 but couldn't prove it. The Raffo connection seems to have been the key. Was the suspect John Bittrolff? His mastic beach childhood home is blocks from Kim Raffo's childhood home. Was it Bittrolff or another suspect. Why did we never hear anymore about this? What happened?

    Police are closing in on the Long Island Ripper serial killer according to Irish-born Police Commissioner Richard Dormer. Authorities have said they are "looking at somebody" with relation to the discovery of eight bodies along the Long Island coast, in New York.

    WHAT HAPPENED?

    Was the suspect 57? Could be...

    Wow! It has been a LOOOOONG time (years) since I have visited and/or posted (as you know, Life "Happens"), but also, as you each know, some cases (or cases more often than not) stick with us, never to be forgotten, always in our hearts and/or minds Honestly, I could not imagine being LE and working any of these types of cases, as I'd end up completely obsessed & unable to move on, as they are far too heartbreaking & knowing there is a SK still out there would drive me nutters! Anyhow, I did a quick search to check the status and seenif anything new had been posted. I have always had my own suspect, but never took it to LE for fear of being seen as or labeled a Nutter...Also, it did not help that it was never clear WHO was the one to contact about such things (the guys listed whom I looked up seemed not to want any added input from "armchair detectives"), and as I stated so many times it was nit clear who was in charge of the investigation (who grudgingly got saddled with it as they did not wish any spotlights on themselves.) *shrugs*..Can't blame them when there were no active leads..I will say that it is now easy for me to now see how these cases go unsolved. Why? Well, because when all of the bodies were found, there was such fevor to solve these heinous crimes, but as leads grew cold (not that there were many leads to begin with), and now, years later, silence, and nothing new. When they picked up J.Bittroloff I knew that wasn't him (different MO <- plus wasn't my guy)....Which is shocking since we all KNOW that a SK just doesn't "STOP!", either they get caught & ARE STOPPED or, they keep on doing what they are driven to do. Not only that, but my theory as to why the bodies were found in the 1st place (there was a change in land ownership/development so he had to move the bodies or they would be discovered in the location where he initially had them -- the beginnings of development at the time compared to the finished results today, not surprising he decided to move them all ASAP! Because I'm positive, and I'm sure he was back then, he would have been discovered), and after peeking at that same property location today (it is now highly developed on his neighbor's side with only a few acres of his own land seemingly left untouched, and there is new pavement, and buildings etc added.) I would imagine most of the evidence there is now destroyed. It's truly a shame, and I hope they eventually catch him. I will continue to believe that the suspect I came up with is 'the one', his having the ability, being in the 'right' profession, and even locations (NY & at I believe it was a trade show or there was a similar business w/whom he possibly worked only a few blocks from the hotel site, and also, if I recall my notes which were on an old pc of mine, I think he had the method of transportation available too in the form of his own plane, not to mention multiple work vehicles at his disposal), as I said, I still believe he is the guy (that or someone extremely close to him who had access), as there were far too many "coincidences", and I do not believe in 'coincidences' when they take the form or logical conclusions..*shrugs* I will say as matter of whom/where/whatever for identifying about whom or where I speak, and whom I found to be a 'suspect' in case LE breaks the case open, so I can say yes that was him or no I was wrong, so for reference purposes (JRLL+EA+CL), and I will leave it at that, because as always,these are simply my own theories until it is proven otherwise by the hard work & research of official LE representatives. Whom I hope dearly will one day solve these heinous crimes and finally STOP this SK!

    Anyhow, just stopping in/popping in as I have occasionally done through the years...Until...(next time), and In Hopes...(LE finally catches him!)…
    The TRUTH WILL OUT & THERE WILL BE A RECKONING, in this Life or the Next!!!

    Unfortunately that is not the case. And of course there is selection bias as the ones we know the most about are the ones that got caught.

    Some go dormant, which is what I think LISK has done.

    Why don't you call the FBI with your lead? Yes, they aren't thrilled with arm chair detectives but they will give a solid tip a listen.
