    NJ - Jennifer Londono, 31, slain, dismembered, Englewood, 25 June 2017 *Arrest*


    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD wants your help identifying a woman whose decapitated and dismembered body was found floating in the water near Gowanus Bay and Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn.
    Police pulled the body from the water and found it was a woman’s torso. The head, arms, and legs below the knees had all been removed.

    Police divers have returned to the area to search for additional body parts.
    Police have released an image of a Sanskrit tattoo found on the woman’s body in the hope that it will help identify her.

    Pic of the actual tattoo:

    The headless torso of a woman was found off the coast of Red Hook Tuesday, police said.

    The badly decomposed body was spotted near Conover Street around 11:20 a.m., according to police.
    In an effort to identify the woman, the NYPD released an image of a tattoo found on the woman's right hip.

    Sure seems like the same MO. I was thinking about linking this in the LISK forum but not sure where to post it.

    Surely someone in the NYPD knows how to translate that, yes? Seems like it would go a long way toward helping to identify this victim. Sanskrit tattoos have become very trendy over the years, especially with the yoga craze, so it's probably not helpful to make cultural, religious, or nationality assumptions based on this (not that anyone has so far).
    I did some research and it's not a popular "new age enlightenment" type saying, whatever it is. The '3T" sections stand for "a" letter/singular but I've come up empty puzzling the rest out, particularly since I think the first two characters of the tattoo may be stylized to some degree and therefore harder to match using language books (or I'm not looking in the right places).

    I wonder if it could be someone's name translated into Sanskrit?

    I did some of my own research on the Sanskrit alphabet to try to read the tattoo-- I think the tattoo is primarily a stylized "fake" Sanskrit tattoo. I was able to identify only two letters-- the letters that look like 3-T are "a" in Sanskrit. I wasn't able to identify the first two letter though, which appear to be the same. So I don't think the tattoo has any cultural significance for that reason, along with the fact it's surrounded by other star tattoos.

    I've read about dismembered female bodies popping up in the city over the past year, a lot found floating in canals and rivers. I think it's easy to pin found female decedents in NYC/LI on LISK and a part of us almost wants his "work" to make an appearance again, but I'm going to argue this probably isn't his work and more likely gang related. Being chopped up and thrown in the water is a common way gangs dispose of their victims' bodies; if the body is chopped up, and the remains are scattered in various bodies of water, obviously it makes it harder to tie all the pieces together (no pun intended). It's organised in the sense it took some logic, but not organised in the way a truly organised, seasoned serial killer operates. Also the fact her torso was found in Gowanus makes me think it's even less likely LISK. No skilled murderer would be stupid enough to dump their victim in Gowanus.

    I live in NYC now, and grew up within minutes of Gilgo Beach. I can tell you from firsthand account of seeing the environment in which the LISK bodies were dumped that it's EXTREMELY easy to conceal a body in the brush down there. And at night, there is absolutely no one on the highway, and when you do see someone on the highway at night it's always unsettling. There's brush, marsh, and reeds everywhere, and no one wants to go in them. People don't usually go poking around those areas which basically made it an ideal situation for LISK. But since the cat's out of the bag and everyone knows LISK's preferred dumping grounds, he probably knows better than to go dumping there again, or even around Jones Beach.

    What I wonder now is, if he is still active and in the NYC/LI area, which I don't doubt, where's his new dumping ground? Basically any beach along the south shore is game, especially far enough out east where it gets really rural and desolate. LISK is definitely someone who either lived on Long Island when the murders occurred, grew up there, or worked there. I mean, even if I were an out of towner looking to dump a body, I'd say Gilgo Beach is a pretty good spot. That's fairly obvious. But the fact that those limbs were found in Manorville and then linked to remains on Gilgo Beach just drives home the fact he knows Long Island well. I wonder if perhaps he lives in New York City and does his dirty work on Long Island, having been a previous resident who knows the area well.

    The 3-T symbol is the vowel a. Unfortunately that's about as far as my sanskrit knowledge goes.

    While I don't think this is related to the Gilgo Beach girls, could be related to the Manorville Butcher. Then again, I thought the same about Leondra Foster (I think that was her name?), the woman who was dismembered last year in the Bronx by Somorie Moses. I'm 50/50 on whether or not it's connected to LI.

    First symbol is LA, then again LA. I can't figure out symbol between two 3-T (between two A).
