    LISK Q & A Thread **NO DISCUSSION**

    Here's how it works: Member A posts a question of fact. Member B quotes Member A's post and provides a one or two line answer, with a link.

    Example:

    Q. What day was Amber Lynn Costello last seen?
    A. Sept 2, 2010

    http://nymag.com/news/features/long-...-6/index2.html

    This is strictly a non-discussion thread. Posts containing opinions and speculation will be removed.

    It's very doubtful that would ever happen. Once a forum is private, it stays private.

    Thanks for the question.

    Neither the 10 victims nor Shannan Gilbert were buried.

    When exactly did the Suffolk Co. police initiate the search for Shannan Gilbert?

    What exactly prompted Suffolk Co. police to start searching for Shannan Gilbert? (For example, was it pressure from her family, was it that the SCPD finally became aware of her missing persons report from Jersey City, or something else?)

    Thank You! We just got back from filming a week in Long Island. It's so helpful to have websleuths answer questions for us while in field. You guys know this case better than us and we appreciate your help!

    Criminal Minds, can you explain why the way LISK laid out the women leads you to believe he is left handed?

    Per Gus Coletti, Maxim article:

    "As Coletti recalls, the police arrived later that morning for a cursory checkup, but it was months before they took up the search in earnest. "It wasn't until the middle of August that a detective from missing persons knocked on my door and said,
    "We're looking for Shannan Gilbert, and we would like to know from you what she was wearing,'" says Coletti. "So I told them all I knew, and then I asked, 'Why four months later?'"

    Additional info from an archived Newsday report:

    http://www.newsday.com/long-island/s...uick-1.2546076

    From news reports I've read, I'm of the opinion it was not until Shannan Gilbert's phone records verified her call to 911 that LE began an actual search. I believe only law enforcement knows how much time passed before this happened.

    -Rachel & Josh
    --IMVHO(and an unscientific hunch/observation), the way the bodies were laid out follows the brains subconscious natural selection(but might just be PURE coincidence). Meaning: Let's say you are sitting at an empty coffee table--If i hand you a cup or pencil(or whatever), and have you place it directly in front of you onto the table(then you do it), then hand you another of the same item and ask you to place it on the table, you will MOST likely place it to the side of your dominant hand(the one you would perform MOST of your primary single-handed activities with especially your writing hand(ambidextrous throws a wrench in it, or weird people like me because i write lefty but almost everything else is right handed, so a form of ambi). Giving you a third, would MOST likely cause your brain to make you place it to the opposite side of the first item that you placed the second item to "balance" out the three items(one the right, and one to the left) of the first item. And then the fourth item would go back to the side of the first item that you placed the second item, right next to it.. 4,2,1,3 for a left-hander(3,1,2,4 righty)... I say MOST on these scenarios because that's the most occurring outcome, but not ALWAYS the way it will go down. A few years back when the layout of the bodies was revealed. i tried this test with several of my friends, work colleagues, and teammates, and asked them not to think just react when doing it. This eliminates the person trying to come up with a variation they normally wouldn't do just because they might think it's a "trick" question, or that there is a true "right" or "wrong" answer i was looking to get(normal reaction for people to think they are being tricked/fooled/setup)..This resulted in every left but one going 4,2,1,3(the one differing did it as 4,3,2,1)...A few of the righties had varying outcomes, and the ambis primary went the right handed layout outcome...Purely unscientific but interesting nonetheless

    Looking for any info (name/ contact) on the admin/owner (domain history) of the infamous "longislandserialkiller.com" site - which is now defunct.

    Here's a link to an article about the site.
