    So the other missing bone is a finger? A finger from her neck, right? Where did you get that? :floorlaugh:
    Seriously, I agree, the FBI had the fingers on the bones, but not the whole time. The BAU is supporting, but usually not doing the legwork. And about their profile 101 (white loner in a basement between 10 an 99 years old) one could debate. And the rest of your last post is once more pure assumption. So, please don't forget our beer bet when this is all over (if it will be over before we all die from old age).

    With regard to the paradoxical undressing... If she was in a state of hypothermia causing her to remove her clothes at point A (where they were found) would she actually have the physical ability and mental capacity to continue moving on to point B (where she was found)?? That's seems quite the distance if she was already suffering such a level of hypothermia.

    The Suffolk County PD does not function like a police squad we might find on a prime time television drama. There has never been any evidence in any case where they have knowingly played head games (like removing a bone from a victim's remains and then lying about it to trap a suspect).

    What you see is what you get with this department. If the bones are with the FBI, they would simply say so. There is nothing to gain by hiding that kind of assistance. The department also would not be employing the special homicide task force with unlimited overtime for this case if it was secretly in the hands of the FBI (especially with the County now in a state of a self-declared fiscal emergency).

    That reminds me to that English guy who messed up on the Mt. Everest. They found him like 60 years later, almost eight miles from his pants. I have to look up, where this story was, it's like twenty years ago, I read them in a book.

    IIRC that also happened with the father of that family that was stranded in OR a couple of years ago. They found some of his discarded clothing days before they found his body.

    They found him 8 miles from his pants, huh? Interesting. Mighty cold on Mt Everest.

    PS: All this beer talk... I'll have a Heineken :)

    Sorry i forget not everyone is privy to local news, it was reported in the news here that some bones from the fingers are missing too. hey did you guys hear about the native alaskan serial killer operating in mexico city? or the man that was killed by penguins in the desert? it was in the news right after the article about the african american serial killer operating on ocean parkway :p

    just wanted to add -- the most recent articles say the ME found no evidence of Gilbert drowning.

    [ame="http://websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7862897&postcount=564"]Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Shannan Gilbert Found, death declared an accident. What do you think?[/ame]


    Originally, police had said they believed Gilbert had drowned in the swampy area of Oak Beach. However, the attorney says the report contains no evidence of that.

    the attorney for Mari reiterated that statement in his press conference (where he also discusses the 911 tape)

    So, we have --

    • NO evidence of drowning
    • NO evidence of Cocaine
    • Missing bones from the fingers
    • Missing bones from the toes
    • Missing hyoid bones from the neck

    on why the ME specifically looked for cocaine - I'm wondering if Brewer or Pak admitted to cocaine use that night?

    She was diagnosed Bipolar, not Borderline. Your arguments can still hold true for an unstable Bipolar, but I just thought that needed clarification. 2 different things.

    That or maybe family or friends or business associates told police of her using cocaine in the past.

    Yes, MG's attorney did say that there was no evidence of drowning, but I'm not going to rule it out completely as a cause of death. It is possible that the killer could've drowned her. If they had tested the bone marrow and no diatoms were found, then it'd be certain it wasn't a drowning death. I still find it incredibly hard to fathom that they only tested for cocaine--this is what they call a thorough autopsy?! That's absurd...I certainly hope that the Gilbert family is able to get another autopsy done that is much more detailed so they can get some answers. IIRC I don't think Brewer or Pak admitted to any coke use that night. The hyoid bones missing do point to strangulation but it's still not set in stone. I'm remaining open to various scenarios. It is possible that she fell victim to hypothermia in the marsh and did the paradoxical undressing. I do admit that she would've had to have been extremely hysterical to leave her shoes behind-that's pretty odd. But she was in a bad way. Perhaps she did drown in one of the many ditches. Or the killer caught up to her and drowned or strangled her. Maybe there was no paradoxical undressing. Then he removed her pants, shoes and other personal items and placed them back near the houses where they were found. Hopefully the presence or diatoms (or lack of) evidence will come to light after a second autopsy.

    MOO

    MY PREDICTION: The cops are looking for a suitable dead man to pin it on. I have been wrong before.............and I have been right before.

    I believe based on the autopsies; the LISK and the person responsible for SG's death(if not the same person) is medically knowledgeable, and is able to leave the bodies in such a condition that the autopsy cannot provide any good clues.

    In the SG case, as in the other cases, it is the things that are not present that cause confusion.

    Which leads me to more questions.

    1) Could the ME determine if SG's body was placed intact where it was found, and then it decomposed. Or did it decompose somewhere else and the skeletal remains were then placed in the marsh.

    I tend to think that the killer had the body, accelerated decomposition, removed evidence (hyoid bone) and then placed the skeletal remains in the marsh. I believe he has developed a way of keeping the skeleton relatively intact while transporting it.

    2) Could an ME tell if the decomposition down to skeletal remains was accelerated? I would think that the SK would not want to have a body around decomposing any longer than he would have to. There are chemical and other methods to get to skeletal remains quickly.

    3)The more I think about it the more I believe the perpetrator of these crimes is brilliant, an ultra high achiever in certain fields of endeavor, but not recognized enough to satisfy his ego. Pulling off the 'perfect murders' gives him great satisfaction long after the fact.

    4) Truthspider, being a local, can you think of anybody who might fit this description?

    MOO

    Very funny Clem, but I think this guy is way smarter than he's getting credit for. I've been sayin it from the get go - the media is the victims' families' best friend in this case. People may become desensitized to news of another serial killer stalking their communities, but they will never become desensitized to his suits and hats.

    Cops searched the arrea where SG was found in the intial search....correct? So that would mean 1 of two things. Cops missed the body or body was placed. Lets assumer body was placed after cops searched. Say body was severely decomposed. How would one place a skeleton and make it look like it was there the whole time. You would need a medical backround (or some decent knowledge of the human skelatal system) so you can put anything that moves back in the correct place if you mix it up.

    It is tough for us to answer these questions though....we do not have the details of the search and all we really have for the condition of SG is a satellite like shot. And her belongings were found after the initial search....come on!!!
