    May he die the death of a thousand cuts. Someone should run down the rumor he broke a hooker's arm in Brooklyn. But certain folks in the SCPD wouldn't like that. Shame on you Newsday because you had the story how they intimitaded you into not writing it and you folded like a cheap tent.

    Since I no longer live on Long Island, I cannot see the News 12 videos. Does anyone know if there is a way to view said video after it is released?

    I had to head to work so will be monitoring the news12 app. I will share link once I find it. Hopefully the subscription paywall doesn't come up if out of area. Certainly will keep everyone updated. The segment I seen was around 7am but unfortunately they didn't provide a definitive time. Just said "this afternoon"

    Looks like the segment I seen is live on site now:

    It will not let me on unless I have an account with them, which I and likely many others reading here do not. If there is a way for us to legally watch this video without having to have an account, please someone, let us know. Thanks!

    It's really just a promo announcing the interview this afternoon with escort tying Burke to Oak Beach & his penchant for extreme rough sex.

    I will keep you posted if I find a definitive time & alternate source for the interview.

    I understand the importance of this. But I am very nervous on the intent. Why contact media before this women makes a statement to the police? I just don't get it. It makes me think it is more for media then true investigation. It is just my opinion. I truly hope that it is an important break in this case and not something that had to be blasted through the media for attention. We will see. I will be watching news 12. Not sure what time it is going to be release. But seeing we have not been contacted by SCPD. I am not sure if this lead is creditable. I do hope and pray it is.

    Well the Gilbert family attorney John Ray is facilitating interview & we all know he never misses a moment to grab media attention.

    This man even turned Shannan's burial into a gratuitous press conference imho

    I'm afraid you may be right and this is merely a publicity stunt. Hopefully I am wrong but being it's coming from John Ray I have to think it's simply theatrics.

    Mel......I am wondering what your thoughts are about Bittrolff.

    I was so curious when they LE said they had contacted family .....re: his arrest....it seemed strange....that you guys were contacted to say it had no relevance. ....

    yet a month earlier ....chinelle Brown... body parts...Bay Shore...???...
    Before we found out Leah was responsible...

    Did LE contact you then?....

    Is there some sort of unwritten rule....culture...of gang mentality or hood thinking in "respect"...folk law..whatever......that dismembering a victim sends a message?

    The theory of a Torso killer...applied to this case by Peter in TKS..is interesting.

    But in the reality of day to day.....Im wondering if the dismemberment is more a cultural norm of extreme gang retaliation........ anyone Know??

    The escort that is expected to speak, says she can connect Burke to Hackett. Per News12 update just now.

    If its true...if..


    I could understand going to the media before going to police...

    Now knowing what we do know....why would anyone go to Suffolk police with any info......you wouldn't know who to trust with anything you had to say.

    But I understand your thoughts.....

    With the latest news that involves connecting "peaches" to Giglo beach, namely the remains connected to the toddler, also found there, I think it might be worth taking another look at JB & SCPD.

    The word on the street is that he was known to kidnap and rape sex workers, and in one instance, one of them snagged his firearm. Since he was allegedly known to be violent, she ended up vouching for him.

    After an IA investigation, he was basically sequestered to a desk job... what some might consider, a slap on the wrist.

    1995 IA investigation

    III. That Sergeant Burke engaged in a personal, sexual relationship with Lowrita Rickenbacker, a convicted felon known to be actively engaged in criminal conduct including the possession and sale of illegal drugs, prostitution and larceny, is SUBSTANTIATED.

    IV. That Sergeant Burke engaged in sexual acts in police vehicles, while on duty and iN uniform is SUBSTANTIATED.

    V. That Sergeant Burke failed to safeguard his service weapon and other departmental property is SUBSTANTIATED.

    Lowrita Rickenbacker

    [​IMG]

    On August 18, 2006, Ms. Rickenbacker filed a sexual assault complaint against Suffolk County. The case was dismissed with prejudice, however, Ms. Rickenbacker was awarded $85K on November 15, 2011.

    Ms. Rickenbacker wasn't the only individual who filed a sexual assault complaint against Suffolk County.

    There's more but will leave it at this, for now.
