NEW INFORMATION LINKS BELT FOUND IN GILGO LISK INVESTIGATION
TO GIRLFRIEND OF FORMER DISGRACED POLICE CHIEF JAMES BURKE
(Ronkonkoma, NY) In December, Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) officials held a press conference to show the public new images of a leather belt they said had been found along Ocean Parkway during the early stages of the Gilgo Beach murder investigation. One photo showed the letters “HM” or “WH” embossed on the tip of the belt, which investigators believe was handled by a possible suspect in the killings. The belt, they said at the time, did not appear to belong to any of the victims.
Yesterday on LI News Radio’s Breaking it Down with Frank MacKay, guest Guy Malone said he had good reason to believe the belt belonged to his ex-wife, Heather Malone, who had a long-term relationship with Suffolk’s former Chief of Police, James Burke.
Malone, who separated from Heather in 1999, said he even reported the information to the SCPD following the press conference in December and was told he would hear back from a detective, but never did. The information about the origins of the belt came from his second wife, Linda Malone, who had been a close friend of Heather’s.
Guy recounted that when he called to file a police report, “I told him that Linda Malone, who was my current wife, identified the belt as being from Dimitrios Furs and that she was absolutely certain that that was Heather Malone’s belt.” He later explained that his ex-wife frequently shopped at the Long Island furrier and often had her clothes and other items monogrammed and engraved with her name.
Malone contends that his ex-wife was operating a prostitution ring during the 1990s and 2000s using a Pagenet beeper that was registered to Burke’s home address under the pseudonym “Jane Burke.” At the time, the pair lived together at Burke’s house in Smithtown.
LI Radio host Frank MacKay said, “This is a national story that is taking place in our backyard and LI News Radio is committed to keeping information and facts flowing to our audience”.
