Discussion in 'Long Island Serial Killer' started by stillwatersc, Apr 29, 2011.
I'd be surprised if they found anything on Wantagh parkway. There is a bike path on the shoulder that is used by many people in the summer - walkers and bikers alike.
Also, there's been a lot of construction. I have to research it but someone was killed on the shoulder a year or so ago and they were supposed to at some point put up guardrails.
I'm curious to know just what exactly is prompting LE to search this stretch of Wantagh Parkway. Was something spotted with the FBI aerial imaging, or are they following up on a lead?
This parkway is practically dead center in the middle of the loop and looks like it goes out toward the vicinity of the Hemstead area. There are at least two parks along the way and just over the waterways and marshes.
What loop do you mean, Just K?
Wantagh is a hamlet in Hempstead Town, which contains 22 villages and 37 hamlets, including one called Hempstead Village. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hempstead_(town),_New_York
Wantagh Parkway is the main road to Jones Beach. One could also take Meadowbrook Parkway, but the straight shot is Wantagh Pkwy. It is a very heavily travelled road year round. It is definitely not like Ocean Pkwy.
I doubt anything will be found. JMO.
The loop that some here have mapped out starting at NYC to Jones Beach to West Islip and back to NYC.
What is the significance of the loop? Can you post a link?
I'd like to see where NYC came into this. We don't have any idea where the SK came from. Could have been from Montauk for all we know.
Thanks for the map JustK. I am totally lost there although I saw the loop on another map. What is the significance of the loop? Ta
NIX Eliza to that loop :floorlaugh:
I was running some numbers based on a victim map I have. So let me start. The first 4 bodies were found aprox. 500 feet appart. My theory goes if MBB is the first in the group, most likely placed furthest West, then 500ft east is MB, then 500ft east MW, then 500ft east Alc and 500ft east un ID'd body. After that it is water. So it struck me it's not a 4 group, it is a 5 group. So grand total of 2000ft spread. I was testing a water bound dumping theory, and to better grasp how far that is to carry a body thru the brush I wanted to put it in yards. How many yards is that? 666yds. That is a long haul, so my water bound theory is out the window. But what if that is of signifigance. 5 bodies, 500ft appart total 2000ft, or 666yds. Maybe a co-inki-dink. Maybe not.
This is a map that Carbuff or another poster developed by plotting all the known last sightings, cell phone records, body locations, etc. If you plot all of these things you end up with almost a perfect loop with NYC to the West, Jones & Oak Beach to the South, Robert Moses Causeway to the East and heading north and then west back to NYC. In the center is Garden City and Hempstead.
Not to harp on the good doc and his kin but today, researching other things, stumbled on a CJH with a connection to Garden City. Don't know if it is the doc's father or his son (same name, I think)...if related to CPH, it is more likely it's a previous residence of PH's father. Can't help but to wonder if, with this latest search area, LE isn't trying to rule out the doc and any of his next of kin.
New York State, Environmental, Park and Nassau County police departments will search Nassau County Monday, temporarily closing five miles of one of the three major roadways that connect to the barrier island where the remains have been found, according to a police statement.
New York State police announced Monday morning more details on their search of the southern part of the Wantagh State Parkway for more possible human remains related to the Ocean Parkway homicides. “The New York State police will utilize police cadaver dogs, a specialized search team for rugged terrain, a helicopter, forensic investigators and several search police teams with the assistance of some of the local Nassau County fire departments,” said New York State Police Captain David Candelaria.
"No human remains were discovered in the latest police search for evidence in the case of a suspected serial killer, authorities said after concluding the search Monday afternoon.
The search will continue Tuesday morning, moving from the southern portion of Wantagh State Parkway to "the southern portion of the Robert Moses Causeway from Ocean Parkway to the southern end of the main-span bridge," State Police said in a news release.
State Police, assisted by Suffolk police, state park police and state environmental conservation police, will begin Tuesday's search at about 8:30 a.m. The causeway, from Montauk Highway to Ocean Parkway, "will be closed for an indeterminate amount of time" and access to Captree and Robert Moses state parks will be exclusively from Ocean Parkway, State Police said."
