    I saw a show yesterday on the ID channel and they talked about her case. Is it still being actively investigated?

    In July 2014 John Bittrolff was charged with the murders of Rita Tangredi and Colleen McNamee as well as being a suspect in the murder of a third woman, Sandra Costilla, who was found in similar circumstances as Rita and Colleen, but their lifestyles differed

    Rita Tangredi
    Rita is the first victim. She was found dead on November 2, 1993 in Suffolk County, New York. Tangredi lived in East Patchogue and was known by police to be a prostitute.

    Colleen McNamee
    Colleen was the second victim; being found on January 30, 1994 in Suffolk County, New York. Believed by authorities to be a prostitute, she was beaten, strangled to death and left naked in the woods, near the William Floyd Parkway in Shirley, New York.

    Sandra Costilla
    Sandra is rumored to be the third victim; being found on November 20, 1993 in North Sea, New York. She hasn't been listed as a prostitute by investigators yet, however detectives have said that Costilla led a "similar lifestyle".


    Some believe John Bittrolff to be The long island Serial killer!!

    What do you think??
    John Bittrolff was just convicted of killing Colleen and Rita. He probably is responsible for the death of Sandra Costilla. Hes a serial killer for sure. And yes, his photo and the sketch look identical. LE should look into this.

    ALBANY — Thirty-two years after 22-year-old University at Albany student Karen L. Wilson disappeared, the State Police are still searching for answers.

    Wilson was last seen at 7:20 p.m. March 27, 1985, leaving the Tanning Hut at 1670 Central Ave. in Colonie. Investigators have not confirmed a possible sighting of Wilson later walking towards the college along Fuller Road.

    Troopers launched an extensive foot, dog and helicopter search near Rensselaer Lake, also know as the Six Mile Waterworks, in the days after Wilson vanished but turned up no evidence.
    Wilson was an unpaid, full-time intern for state Assemblyman Samuel Coleman and a UAlbany senior at the time of her disappearance.
    Wilson is described as a 5-foot-3 white woman with brown eyes and light brown hair, weighing 114 pounds. She was last seen wearing a quarter-length cream-colored raincoat, faded blue jeans and blue backpack.

    Anyone with information is asked to call State Police in Latham at 518-783-3211.
