    Going back to the AC4 case, I really think you're onto something with that soup kitchen Cynical. I've said before that I believe there's some kind of religious element to this case, and if our killer is some kind of moral crusader, I'd expect that person to be very much involved in church causes like food banks, soup kitchens and other, similar outreach programs. Gary Ridgeway was very much involved in the church, but that's where the similarity ends, I believe. Ridgeway blamed the prosititutes for the fact that he could not control himself from using their services, this killer doesn't have sex with the victims, and I theorise that he may believe that he is "saving" them from a life of sin and vice.
    One of the reasons I was trying to link Franchesca Alvarado's case with the AC4 is that if there is a connection then it would provide a lot more insight into the pattern of this killer. That case is as much of a mystery as the AC4.

    Speaking of Ms. Alvarado's case we've been trying to pinpoint the exact date that she visited on a day trip to AC. Going on information supplied by her family it's either March 13th or 17th 2012 - depending on which news reports you read.

    In the interest of accuracy I visited The Philadelphia Police website and came across this entry for her:
    “On Saturday, March 17, 2012, Franchesca Alvarado was last seen by her sister at her residences on the 4200 block of Darien Street. Franchesca Alvarado had left stating that she was going to Atlantic City with a friend and has not been seen since.”
    https://pr.phillypolice.com/2012/03/...lice-district/

    So, knowing that their investigators questioned the individual who actually was with her throughout the the day, and knowing that they did coordinate their investigation with ACPD, I'm going to have to return to March 17, 2016 as the day she visited AC and never returned.

    That would make it a Saturday on St. Patrick's Day. Reports indicate that at 2:00 am (Sunday morning) Ms. Alvarado told the individual that drove her there that she was going for a walk and would find her own way back to Philadelphia. Cameras inside Resorts will attest to the validity of that story.

    I've already pointed out the similarities here between Ms. Alvarado's case and Ms. Raffo's. Location, day of the week and time of day almost match exactly. Victim #2, Barbara Breidor, was last seen on a Tuesday (Oct. 17, 2006) so that's not a match. But it's quite possible the other two victims were abducted on a Sunday morning as well.

    Makes me think of that Johnny Cash song “Sunday Morning Coming Down”:
    “On a Sunday morning sidewalk, / I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned. / 'Cause there's something in a Sunday / That makes a body feel alone.”

    A killing before church perhaps?

    As always, just my opinion.

    Ps: Loyality cards given out by the casinos is another method of tracking an individual's movements. Most regular customers are fanatical about plugging them into slots or giving them to dealers to get those comp points.

    The retired Trenton homicide investigator who teamed up with the reporter concerning their Dennis Gaskill investigation stated that he was originally investigating the disappearance of Danielle Nuttall-Ravert who was last seen at 12:30 am September 7, 2008.

    “A cabdriver dropped her off at the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden, New Jersey at 12:30 a.m. on September 7.”

    Later:

    “Nuttall-Ravert's family lives in Egg Harbor, New Jersey. She frequented Egg Harbor, as well as the Pacific Avenue area of Atlantic City, New Jersey, an area known for its prostitution activity.”

    So, 12:30 am September 7, 2008 – That would be a Sunday morning.

    I've always been curious about the the death of Maria Morales. She was the young lady whose body was found at the bottom of a laundry chute inside The Atlantic Palace on Nov. 1st, 2015. I've never been able to find a report stating her cause of death or the circumstances surrounding it.

    “Police were called to Atlantic Palace, a condominium and hotel complex at New York Avenue and the boardwalk, around 7 a.m. Sunday morning. That's where they found the body of Maria Morales of Penns Grove.”

    The Atlantic Palace is located on the boardwalk about a block and a half from Resorts. Apparently it happened on a Sunday morning. - Just my opinion.

    There is an Australian podcast called Phoebe's Fall which I strongly suggest you listen to Cynical, it's about a young woman who is found dead at the bottom of one of those chutes in a luxury Melbourne apartment building. Phoebe's death was initially ruled as a suicide, but Phoebe's family and friends are convinced she was murdered. Phoebe's grandfather is a former police detective and he staged a very convincing demonstration which, to me, proved that it would be incredibly difficult, almost impossible, to put yourself into one of those chutes. Could be worth listening to for insight into this laundry chute death.

    After refreshing my memory on what you were talking about (post531) I do remember looking around a bit but found nothing. You would think there would be at least a trace of a story like that somewhere on this side of the paywall but damn if I could find it. Then again this is AC where a certain image would need to be maintained and I could see the story not being widely disseminated.

    I guess someone with a LexisNexis account would have to look for it
