    Probably the victim's relatives have not even been found and notified yet.

    O....M....G. This is really bad news: shocking ... Lord, assuming these 4 may have known one another: it's even scarier to think we 'travel in numbers for safety purposes'. Thoughts to family and relatives.

    This sounds like an execution. I wonder if this is casino related.

    Most likely prostitution and/or drugs. The neighborhood is very, very seedy.

    NJ - Shoes in hotel may be clue to AC killer, 2006

    http://articles.philly.com/2006-12-1...el-guest-shoes

    An odd collection of shoes in an out-of-towner's rented Pacific Avenue hotel room may help investigators find the killer of four women whose barefoot bodies were found in a watery ditch last month. Or it could be another dead end...

    He said he and others saw women's sneakers, high heels and sandals inside the closet of a hotel room rented by a man from Phoenix. Trivedi said the hotel guest checked in alone on Oct. 3 and stayed three weeks. The man paid his $627 hotel bill with a Commerce Bank debit card when he checked out on Oct. 23 and used an Arizona driver's license as identification... Trivedi said the man "talked like he was a minister, about God" but often "had women coming to his room." He also had male visitors, including a black man and a white man who drove a white van.

    The tips provided by Michelle and Trivedi are among dozens police have received and investigated since the bodies were discovered on Nov. 20 behind a string of motels along Route 322 in the West Atlantic City section of Egg Harbor Township. Three of the women, Kim Raffo, 35, Tracy Ann Roberts, 23, and Barbara V. Breidor, 42, had criminal records for prostitution. Another victim, Molly Jean Dilts, 20, had been working the streets for a only few weeks before she disappeared.

    A.C. murders lead to Alloway

    http://www.nj.com/news/bridgeton/loc...00.xml&coll=10

    ALLOWAY TWP. -- A task force assembled to solve the deaths of four women whose bodies were found in a ditch outside Atlantic City last year spent Monday night and Tuesday searching a home here in connection with the unsolved, high-profile case, authorities said.

    The search was executed at a house at 183 Alloway-Friesburg Road. According to property records, the house is owned by Terry L. Oleson.

    Authorities from several law enforcement agencies took part.

    An occupant of the house once worked as a maintenance man at the motel in Egg Harbor Township near where the bodies of the women were found last Nov. 20, according to authorities.

    No one has been arrested in the case and it was not clear from authorities what led them to search the Alloway property.

    A 34-year-old man who lived in the house had been questioned by authorities, according to wire reports, but officials declined to release his name.

    "All I can say at this point is that the house was searched as part of the continuing investigation into the four murders that took place In Egg Harbor Township," said Atlantic County Prosecutor Jeffrey Blitz on Tuesday, who is heading the investigation. "The (Atlantic County) prosecutor's office in conjunction with a special task force of state and local police are working diligently on the case."

    The four dead women were found lying close together in a drainage ditch behind the Golden Key Motel on the Black Horse Pike (Route 322), an establishment which -- along with many others along the highway -- has long been considered part of the seedy underside of Atlantic City.

    No charges for former motel handyman in hooker deaths

    EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A former handyman at a motel near where the bodies of four prostitutes were found last November was not charged with a crime following two days of interviews with authorities.

    A law enforcement official familiar with the case said the 34-year-old man had been interviewed at the Atlantic County Prosecutor's office in Mays Landing on Monday and Tuesday, and was allowed to leave the office Tuesday without being charged or arrested.

    Officials with a task force set up after the four bodies were found face-down in a drainage ditch searched the man's house in Alloway Township, Salem County on Monday and Tuesday, taking away unspecified items in several boxes.

    The man had been staying last fall at the Golden Key Motel on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, just west of the Atlantic City border. He did odd jobs and maintenance work at the motel in return for a break on his rent, authorities and the motel's owner said.

    The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation.

    Of the four women whose bodies were found last November, two had been murdered; autopsies could not determine the cause of death for the other two because they had been in the ditch for so long. No arrests have been made.

    Man questioned in AC deaths still not publicly named suspect

    http://wcbstv.com/newjerseywire/NJ--...rces_news_html

    Sunday, May 20, 2007
    ALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) A man whose house was searched in connection with the discovery last November of four bodies in a ditch west of Atlantic City has been asked to provide DNA samples to prosecutors, even though he has not publicly been termed a suspect in the deaths.
    Terry Oleson has been jailed since last month when he was arrested on an unrelated charge of invasion of privacy involving the alleged secret videotaping of a 15-year-old girl.
    The 34-year-old former part-time handyman was staying at the Golden Key Motel in Egg Harbor Township last November, yards away from the ditch where the bodies of the four women were found.
    Oleson's house was searched on April 2, and he was questioned by investigators on that day and the next. Oleson told The Press of Atlantic City last week that the eight-hour interrogation turned confrontational at one point.
    ``We know you did it,'' he recalled one questioner telling him. ``How much time you get depends on what your answers are here.''
    Oleson said that authorities took his pickup truck so they could compare the tire treads with tread imprints left at the crime scene. He said when he told investigators he wanted to end the interrogation and leave because he wasn't being charged, he was told, ``Not without your truck you ain't, because we seized it.''
    Since then, Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jill Horenberger filed a motion to have Oleson provide DNA evidence to compare with evidence from the crime scene.
    Oleson's attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., has sought to have evidence against his client unsealed, particularly the affidavits that led to the search warrant for Oleson's house. A hearing scheduled for May 9 was postponed until June 8.
    Oleson told the newspaper he believes a former girlfriend was responsible for investigators coming to his home on April 2. Teresa Fair had been under a court order to leave the house the two shared on the night before the house was searched.
    He also said a former friend, Melissa Bishop, accused him of assault, a charge he denies. Bishop is in prison serving a drug conviction. Oleson said he severed contact with Bishop after he learned she was a prostitute.
    ``If you're basing your entire theory on a prostitute with a drug history and a scorned ex-girlfriend, it doesn't take a genius to realize why they aren't releasing those affidavits,'' Leonard told the newspaper.

    I would probably beleive her before I would beleive a guy taping 15 year old girls. Atleast she isn't trying to play it down............unlike some other people........

    Did anyone see the show on this on Saturday night? I believe it was 48 hours. The guy looked remarkably like the sketch the artist drew for the prostitute. I also found it interesting that the profilers believed the killer had an interest in the visual arts due to the way the bodies were positioned. Meanwhile, this guy is found to be a video voyeur, and was familar with the dumping grounds. I don't know - this guy certainly seems to fit, IMO.

    Interesting that he claims he severed the relationship with the woman who accuses him of assault "after he found out she was a prostitute" AND he is being investigated for assaulting and murdering prostitutes. Hmmm...

    I saw it and thought the sketch looked like him also but the woman said it was not this guy from a recent photo...
