    Thanks for a great interview, and for asking my question, concerning wheter Kolker had found any info on a possible connection between the GB4 and the AC4, which he apparently had not, as I understood it due to that he had not really looked into it

    But Kolker, to me, came across as a very sincere and sympathic person with good insight in the case.

    The, to me, only new significant info was that Kolker stated that NO voice recording had been done concerning the killers phonecalls to Melissa Barthelemy's little sister. And if that turn out to be true WHAT A SHAME...SHAME ON THE POLICE !!!

    Well, I missed it. Just my luck! I popped in today to take a break from R/L lol, and see what was new.

    Thanks to TF for representing - glad somebody was there to ask questions.
    Did we all miss this? Why no discussion? There must be another thread???

    I'm off to see if I can hear a playback...

    Kolker made a good case for why the Gilgo area is not just a catch-all dumping ground. He pointed out that mob dumping grounds would contain bodies that were identifiable and linked to the mob, not only the bodies of sex workers and people that are so far off the grid that there aren't even missing persons reports about them (so probably also sex workers). That basically confirms that this is a dumping ground for at least one serial killer, not a random dumping ground.

    I had also never considered the idea that the killer dumped all of the Gilgo Four at the same time. I don't know why that seems significant, but it does.

    Yeah. That would have taken almost no effort and could have aided in the LISKs apprehension.

    Good interview. I'll be buying the updated edition of Kolker's book once the LISK is caught.

    Here's hoping for a 2014 release.

    It would prove that he did intend to "watch [Melissa's] body rot." Ugh. And he would have already done so with Maureen.

    If he did keep the first bodies for years while accumulating more, we're looking at a loner or someone rich enough to have an unusual amount of privacy. So why suddenly unload all the bodies after killing two women in rapid succession? Did his circumstances change or did he feel out of control after killing Amber?

    He was sloppy with Amber when he asked her to meet him at the same motel from which he'd abducted Megan earlier in the summer. Maybe he was careless with Amber in other ways. I wonder if there were unexplained reports of women screaming elsewhere on Long Island, around the time of Amber's disappearance.

    It also suggests that he considers Gilgo Beach to be a safe distance away from wherever his home base is. That makes me wonder about Hauppage.

    Just listened. All was very good except the part about OP being traveled by truckers. Thank you.

    Hi Aleph - nice post. I've managed to listen to half the radio show so far!
    Here's a few things I noted:

    1) Kolker admits the girls had burn phones - so why did Amber need to use DS's phone? He says she left HIS phone behind - but she must have had her own IMHO. Not sure what that means, but it bothers me.
    2) Kolker says things that implies he has LE connections, such as: "They're just begging the public for more information." (meaning LE) Whaaaaattttt? Wish I could have asked about that because I don't see LE working with the public AT ALL.
    3) Kolker say the bodies were found "intact." His word, not mine. He says something like "shrouded" or "wrapped" in burlap (sorry, can't remember his exact phrase). To me, this was always something I wanted to know...were the bones jumbled up like they had been thrown or dumped or were they laid out - "intact" even, like they were "Placed" there with some care or even arrangement of the bodies?
    4) Kolker says something about Amber being "closest to the beach." Again, not sure why, but I find that interesting.
    5) Kolker implies that Cruz was the father of Megan's daughter - I didn't catch that ever before. He says something like "Megan wanted to have another child with him...".
    6) Kolker quotes Rifkin (Joel) as saying they were the perfect victims. They weren't. They had families they were involved with and who reported them missing. The other vics on OP don't seem to have that. Why? That's one of the big questions in my mind - makes me think they are separate cases -JMO (for now haha).
    7) I loved it when Trisha was moving on to Megan as the next in sequence - but Kolker brought her right back to Shannan - as he should - she WAS right in the middle of the other four cases - Maureen and Melissa BEFORE Shannan and Megan and Amber AFTER Shannan.


    Aleph, I think you are addressing the "rumors" that the perp kept his vics for sometime, and dumped them all at once. I'm hoping to catch up tonight! Def want to know more about that. Are there rumors of a woman screaming on Long Island? I don't remember that. Chilling if true.
    I also love how Kolker calls the boyfriends "pimps". True that. IMO LE should have put all the pimps and johns behind bars and squeeeeeeezed them for info.
