    Which of us dug into the AC murders and has alot of info on that case they can share? I had alot of info, but lost it all some time back when my computer died on me. Can anyone provide a basic outline of info for those murders?

    Just K, you had something, didn't you?

    Hi MK, I never read much about these murders but found this thread from 2006 from that time not long after the girls were found. The links might be too old to work:

    Also, It takes between 2.5 to 4 hours to make the drive: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_long_is_the_Drive_time_from_NYC_to_Atlantic_City

    I've read now the bodies were found on Monday, Nov 20th, 2006. If it is true the girls were killed the day before they were found that would mean they could have indeed been killed on the weekend. The link to that info BTW is kaput - too old. Here is what it said:
    (CBS/AP) EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. The bodies of four dead women were found Monday afternoon behind a motel outside Atlantic City, authorities said.

    The bodies were found face down in several inches of water in a ditch, said Janet Niedosik, a spokeswoman for the Atlantic County prosecutor's office.

    http://wcbstv.com/topstories/local_story_324214931.html


    I also wrote a post in Nov of 2006 saying: "I heard one was killed 2 months ago, then another one month ago, one 2 weeks and the last a few days up to a week". I would have to have read an article that stated such - most of them are deleted now.

    The AC girls were Streetwalkers; the LI girls were Craigslist escorts. That’s a big difference. They were all drug users but realistically, I suspect most "working girls" from High end call girls to ghetto "strawberries" are drug users. The bodies were all laid out in the same direction but that is probably because the perp used the same method to drag all of his victims from a car to the dump site. He probably figured out that he had a good dump site but didn't want to attract attention by stopping at exactly the same spot so he deliberately "spaced" them out.

    Overall, I do not see any strong connection between the two clusters. I believe they are unrelated.

    Bolded by me


    The only one we know for sure was killed on a weekend is Kim Raffo as she disappeared on the 19th and was found on the 20th.

    I just don't see any pattern as to when they were taken - 1st kill then wait 10 days to take the next gal - then 29 days til the next and finally 4 days later Kim is taken.

    Hi there, When a gal picks up a guy does she pick the place where they go? That motel right close to where they were found - do you think all 4 used that place? That would make it a close by dump site.

    Also NJGuy, do you know if all 4 girls were moved to that creek at the same time or rather each one put there after being killed? I guess I think of the dump site as being too open to leave bodies there for several weeks without being discovered.

    Thanks

    Two women who were walking back there, IIRC, were the ones to find them. It's a pretty nasty area and it's not the kind of place one might go for a casual or leisurely stroll. Most likely the women either worked at the motel and were out there for some work related reason or they were "working." This area, behind the motel, is a trash strewn ditch. The motel and the ditch sit in between two highways. It is not in the commercial (boardwalk & casino) section of AC...

    I'd have to check on this but the general consensus is that the women who were missing the longest had the most decomp to their faces that were in the storm ditch.

    Hi Scandi, JustK is correct. The are where the hotel is located and where the girls were found is in a bad area. Specifically, the Golden Key is a bad, bad place. Prostitution, drugs, gangs, etc all frequent the hotel. It is known as a seedy, shady place. Further, reports have at least two of the girls working the track (the street right off the boardwalk that is filled with prostitutes. Pacific Ave and Atlantic Ave are the two main streets right off the boardwalk where men and working girls find each other. It is possible to drive on the road and/or walk on the street to find a girl. The hotel is a good distance away from the boardwalk and track, and reports suggest at least 2 of the girls were picked up on the track and driven somewhere, before eventually being discovered behind the hotel. JustK is also correct in that the hotel is situated between the AC Expressway and the Black Horse Pike (which is the road the hotel is actually on) and where the girls were discovered is a fairly narrow, but long stretch of grassy field with a drainage/sewage ditch running through it. Certainly not easy to get to, unless you're familiar with the hotel. It is quite an open area, however, it is also an area where no one will go unless they have a specific reason for doing so. It is unclear if they were all dumped at the same time or one at a time. My hunch, is that they were dumped individually. He would need a place to store all the bodies before dumping them, and that doesn't seem to fit. (Unless he was a local, or kept a place in AC).
    There was also the report of one of the victims (Kim R.) getting into a black Nissan Maxima with out of state plates in the very early morning she went missing. This was reported by a deli owner who often met and knew many of the working girls, including KIm. This deli is near the boardwalk, closer to the casino area than the hotel. Also, there was video at one of the casinos (I believe Caesars) of Kim very early in the morning, however I'm not sure what came of that video.

    Not a big difference from my perspective. They were all easy targets, disposable "things" in the mind of our sk, all shared a profession where friends and family are usually not in touch enough to notice them missing right away, and by the very nature of that profession, LE doesn't bother to investigate unless family bugs them or an UB turns up on a beach somewhere. In my mind, those things are strong commonalities. I don't for one second believe our sk limits himself to craigslist exclusively. JMO

    More random thoughts:

    If the AC murders and the GB murders are connected, what might account for AC being a spree killing and GB being a spaced out killing?

    ~Possible the guy was questioned in connection with the AC murders, and forced himself to become more disciplined? Highly doubt that.

    ~ Possible he's STILL spree killing at time of GB murders, but not dumping the bodies in chronological order at dumpsites? That doesn't feel right to me, but only because it goes against who I think this guy is.

    ~ Perhaps he needed to spree kill in AC because he needed to keep the thrill level high often. Perhaps he found a better way of prolonging the thrill by the time he started the GB murders. How could he accomplish that? Take a victim, keep her alive for awhile, then kill her when the thrill is gone and hunt for another. What scares and sickens me about THIS thought is that it DOES ring true to me. On many levels.

    The AC murders happened in a relatively short period of time, and the perp kept trophies, i.e. the shoes, of his victims. It just seems ridiculous to think the AC killer started and ended his life of crime with four women that were murdered and dumped in a ritualistic appearing manner (heads facing east, all face down in a drainage ditch, spaced relatively evenly apart). Even before I had ever heard of the GB4, I had thought of the AC killer as someone who had been "on vacation" in AC, but stressed for some reason - thus the 4 murders in a short period of time.

    The two men from Dark Minds on the ID channel were interviewed on TODAY this morning. The SK that they confer with is called 'Thirteen'.
    'Thirteen' thinks the AC and LI cases are connected. They also said that 'Thirteen' was spot on about some facts especially in the AC case, IIRC.

    I looked for a link to the interview but it's not posted to their site yet.

    This show sounds interesting! IMO Here's a link to the upcoming episode......

    http://investigation.discovery.com/tv/dark-minds/episodes/episode-guide-02.html

    Does The Eastbound Strangler have a cross to bear against women he considers "fallen"? Is there a religious basis for the eastward positioning of the bodies? And are the later murders of four prostitutes in Long Island connected?

    To get inside the Dark Mind of this murderer, Phelps must rely on criminal profiler John Kelly — and personal insight from Kelly's secret source, a convicted serial killer code-named "13".

    Thanks NJGuy and JustK for the info on the AC murders. I was poking around SG's missing/located thread this am and found this article with lot's of info. There is a photo on pg 4 of the ditch where the victims were found. IT IS FILTHY! Nobody deserves to be disposed of in this manner.:furious:

    http://www.longislandpress.com/2011/04/14/long-island-serial-killer-beach-bodies/

    I tell ya what....If LE was able to locate the Fairfax, VA serial butt stabber all the way down in South America, then they can find this A-hole/A-wipe, SK, unusual person, whatever he is!

    Rant over! That pic of the ditch made me sick and I just had to vent. Thanks all.

    oh, MOO.

    There is something very different about this police department and the area (Suffolk County) as compared to others. There is something malignant going on there.

    Fairfax County Police did have some good video of the attacker. Still, with the butt slasher, people probably cared more because he was slashing random young women at middle class shopping malls. People/the public/women were appalled. The sense was that any young women was a target. I believe one of his relatives called in the tip.
