    Oh and also, no, voice identification isn't enough to get a conviction or even indictment for that matter. If there's a recording though, maybe it needs to be made public. Even if it's a small part or a few words. Someone may recognize the voice

    Just wondering here:

    Is it possible he did kill her right away but wanted her family to believe he was keeping her alive somewhere? Otherwise, why not put Melissa on the phone... let them hear her/her torture. I mean, that would truly be sadistic. I think it's possible that once he saw photos of her younger sister (via Melissa's cell)... he wished he could kill her, also. But, she wasn't his usual "easy" prey (I mean she wasn't a sex worker advertising online) and so he opted for the next (best) thing... torturing her with words on the phone.

    I've never believed he held these women for any length of time. Partly for the reason you stated, but also because I don't believe he had a place where he could hold them without detection. In other words, he doesn't live alone, imo. It's not a coincidence that his calls to Amanda came around dinner time. If you consider that he's a man who works in NYC and lives with his family on LI, then these calls would have come when he had the opportunity to torment...in other words, on the ride home from work.

    HERE'S THE TRUTH ABOUT AMBER

    Some say she asked for it and had it coming because she was running a scam out of her home where she would lure guys in from Craigslist, get them naked on her bed and then leave the room while her scary boyfriend and another man would rush in with baseball bats and steal the john's money. Amber didn't even need to have sex with her johns. She was running a scam and stealing their money and scaring them away.

    These guys post on another board called utopiaguide dot com. Do a search for the "Carney Construction Crew" and you will find all of their members discussing this stuff in detail.

    People, it is highly unlikely that Amber was killed by one SK working alone. This is so obvious yet nobody.. not John Ray, not the authors of the books and not the producers of these tv shows cares to explore these well documented facts. AMBER was targeted by a group of men who PROMISED to hurt her.

    UGHH.

    Another post from the past... several posts before and after this one might also deserve review.

    "ALLEGEDLY, from " a few girls "(not my saying so) Carney Construction Crew"

    Last week I found a link between Ruis and the name mentioned above. Whether it's associated with construction, Utopia Guide or anything else... I don't know.

    Something of interest. ....reading over older threads here...

    Were these murders ever solved (links below) .....

    I had seen members of the ccc on Utopiaguide giving out location details .... that this area was a hotspot for streetwalkers..... these murders pre date Jessica Taylor by 2 years.

    But I have seen the mention......or..thought we maybe looking closer at a Queens connection.....Rosedale and Queens are so close in proximity. ...thought it may be of interest.

    One thing that stood out to me ..... with Bittrolff arrest - He operated a business called Coastal Construction... The coincidences between ccc and then all the JB initials..have my mind swimming...

    The one thing with Bittrolff..... when that pig Leah Cuevas murdered and dropped body parts off starting in Bay Shore...Nothing!!!!!!.........But then soon after with the arrest of John Bittrolff....scpd...all over it contacting relatives of LISK victims to say it was unrelated?? ....something weird with that.

    How recent are the pictures we have seen of the GB4? What did they look like when they went missing? In the book Lost Girls, ALC is described as being 80lbs and covered in track marks. She does not look that way in the pictures I have seen. How many others looked very different by the time they went missing?

    That's assuming that she went through Penn, from where she was coming from it would have been quicker to get to the hub in Jamaica Queens, or Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal. Those are the other 2 major LIRR hubs in NYC, and both Jamaica and Atlantic Terminal have as much traffic as Penn. Similarly, you can score any kind of dope within a few blocks from all 3 hubs for about the same dollar amount per sack, cheap.

    LIRR conductors work full shifts and have tightly regimented schedules. They don't get "calls," they have consistent train schedules that they keep M-F with more limited service Sat and Sunday. Typically, when starting or ending a shift, they get on or off the train respectively at a designated stop. They don't have leeway to get on and off whenever they feel like it. Additionally they work in groups. There's the main conductor, and then there's the groups of ticket punchers/door watchers. They're usually a two wo/man team, with a couple teams per train. It would be very difficult for a conductor to pick up a hooker on the train, and bounce with her without drawing serious and immediate speculation.

    There are also LIRR regular commuters, which total a little south of 400,000 people per day. Usually the only people that conductors recognize and say anything more than "ticket" too when punching are older and have been on that same train, at that same time, every day, 5 days a week for 15 years.

    If simply riding the LIRR is the connection, it'd most likely be a passenger, not a conductor IMO.

    Something popped into my head this morning. Amber was said to take the LIRR into NYC almost daily to get her drugs. Several things are off about this. The LIRR is a long ride into the city unless you're in Nassau County. It is notoriously pricy. Now, I remember when I was younger, I'd take Metro North to work. One of the conductors had a thing for me, and often he'd let me ride for free. You know who would have a job that would put them on Long Island and also near Penn station? An LIRR conductor. Just my thoughts.

    This post caught my eye. A caller asked Amber to meet him at the Holiday Express. She declined. This is the same Hotel Megan was last seen.

    I'm not so sure you can take that story for granted that she constantly went to NYC to get her heroin. I've known a lot of drug users on Long Island and I've never met anyone into the scene that needed to go from suffolk county to nyc to get a fix. Sounds very outlandish and I'm just talking civilian users. If you're an escort you probably know at least 10-20 people local you can ask for a connect.

    I just can't picture a female junkie doing all the work to score when its in her back yard and she knows it.

    LI has a heroin problem. Amber did not have to travel to NYC for a fix. Guess Dave said that so his connection on the Island doesnt get nervous. He was talking to cops and media.
