    NY - Maria Pilar Cruz, 35, New York City, 13 April 2003

    I remember seeing flyers up on the streets of Manhattan...I always wondered why it never received much press attention. Seemingly, she went missing without a trace. Last person to see her was her doorman entering her building. No forced entry. Anyhow, they found her and it's received press attention bc they used her breast implants to identify her. The things the press finds newsworthy! They don't report on her disappearance but they report on her death/body discovery because she had breast implants.http://abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20040219_582.html

    New York Daily news headline: The quack's back

    http://www.nydailynews.com/front/sto...p-267384c.html
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Investigators are looking into the cop sister of accused killer quack Dean Faiello to determine if she helped cover his tracks after he allegedly killed investment banker Maria Cruz during botched laser surgery, according to law-enforcement sources.
    Manhattan District Attorney's Office detectives are eyeing Debra Faiello, a New Jersey state trooper, to see if she took key evidence and set up his life as a fugitive in Costa Rica, the sources said.

    After her brother bolted, Debra removed his patient files and a bag of his possessions that contained Cruz's ID, keys and credit cards, sources involved in the case said.

    She took her brother's SUV, which cops think he used to transport Cruz's body. And she pressured her brother's attorney to wire him $50,000 in February 2003, two weeks before Cruz's remains were discovered at Dean's Newark house, the sources said.

    At the time, the attorney didn't know Dean was in Costa Rica. When he asked Debra where her brother was, she told the lawyer he "didn't want to know," one source said.

    The exchange has raised suspicions among investigators who previously said Debra was not implicated in the case although one law-enforcement source said she "should have been looked at more closely."

    "Faiello told the court he was giving the woman a laser treatment for hair growth on her tongue when she began having seizures."

    Ok, this is horrible and I don't want to make light of it, but WTH!? She is a financial analyst who goes to a guy's apartment for a medical procedure? The procedure is to get rid of hair on her tongue? Where have I been? I thought I'd heard of every cosmetic procedure, but to me, this is a first. Is there more to this story?

    I have never heard of hair growth on the tongue either. Gosh, I can't stand it if I get a hair in my mouth.

    CBS's "48 Hours Mystery" featured this case a couple of years ago.

    They didn't mention the young victim's medical condition as being "hair on the tongue", just chronic infection. Anyway, this Faiello guy is one evil dude. He hid the woman's body under a slab of concrete. I'm glad he's being put away.

    Don't look at this while you're eating:

    There really is such thing as a hairy tongue!

    Hairy tongue is an uncommon, benign condition that is also known as black hairy tongue or lingua nigra. It is characterized by abnormal elongation and blackish or dark brownish discoloration or "staining" of the thread-like elevations (filiform papillae) that cover most of the tongue's surface (dorsum linguae). Such changes often begin at the back (posterior) region of the top of the tongue and extend toward the front (anterior) of the tongue's surface but never involve the undersurface.

    The specific underlying cause of hairy tongue is unknown. However, possible predisposing factors may include poor oral hygiene and overgrowth of pigment-producing bacteria or fungi in the mouth, treatment with certain antibiotic medications, smoking, chewing tobacco, and/or mouthwash use.

    I remember this story! Dean Faiello's sister Debbie is (or was) part of the police force in New Jersey - a dog handler, too. Maria Cruz was earning well and supprting her family back home. Her parents went to NJ to search for her - and again when her body was discovered in a suitcase, under newly laid cement in DF's carport, NJ. He continued his 'services', living the life of Riley after his flight; made 'big bucks' during his phoney career.

    The hairy-tongue article ... eeeuw! When the story broke, someone suggested a 'birth-mark' or type of mole was found on another patient's tongue - grew little hairs, too. I'm no doc; have no idea if that was a profound diagnosis by Fred Flintstone, or if it really can happen. It must be an awfully humiliating defect.

    Yikes!!! (Although that tongue kind of looks the way mine does after I've consumed large quantities of chocolate. )

    Yes, I'd feel sympathy toward those who would have this condition, too, PolkSaladAnnie.
