    That’s very strange and if a POI has a conection to that area it’s very very possible that’s awfully strange

    Looks like a memorial or remembrance, her name and the teardrop, probably representing that she is now deceased. JMO!

    Red was presumably just the color the person had wanted to use for the memorial graffiti. a teardrop under the eye represents a person who has died. A person with a tattoo of a teardrop under their eye is indicating that they have killed one person. each teardrop represents an individual victim. JMO

    when the teardrop is filled in that means someone killed the persons killer. So that kinda looks to me that who ever put that there is sayin that they killed the killer of Costello.
    It looks filled in.

    I believe DS knows more than what he is saying. Didn't Amber usually do just incalls?

    Iam not sure who DS is. But many times girls do in and out calls even if they prefer in belive it or not may prefer out as long as they have a safety line. Don’t over complicate her doing out calls it’s very common even if they say they only do in calls she very well may have made a exception or didn’t feel like dealing with LE, you have to watch out for vice in incalls.

    If is the shadow guy maby cosdieing the name comes from a mythology creature. That seems to have sinister intentions so maby but idk if that who you are talking about. Now I remember about Amber being connected to the clients that had a bad interaction with her, and honestly they probly did she most likely did do something they didn’t like and was not nice. Doesn’t mean they should have sought revenge but that’s very strange she was killed after that. I can’t see the police seeing tha as a coincidence. I think LE knows who LISK is. Or knows someone who knows.

    Just to note again, not long before she disappeared Amber was asked by a John to go to the same Holiday Inn Express that Megan disappeared from, but she declined. DS made it seem like she was creeped out to go there.

    What I've wondered is: Did AC have an idea the guy was creepy from the start? Was he a regular who she just thought "Well he is too creepy to meet at that hotel, but I'll be willing to meet him in his car down the street"? I remember DS saying that LISK knew exactly what to say to her - to manipulate her into meeting him. But why did he have to work so hard to prove it? I get that the girls have to be careful and make sure it isn't vice, but had he been calling her previously and she kept declining to meet (especially at that holiday inn express) until that one fateful night that he FINALLY talked her into meeting him just down her street in his car? Sometimes I wonder if LISK is a vice cop or something like that. Would fit into maybe why Burke took his 3 best vice cops of the gang task force after the bodies were found. I wanna know, was the cop who told Burke's victim "I'm going to rape your mother" a vice cop at one point? I wish I knew.

    I know she was very hard up for drugs at this point and likely would have been less careful, but I tend to think AC had an idea about LISK. She was feeling him out. IMO based on interviews with DS.

    There has to be a working girl who, in between the time Amber disappeared and the bodies were discovered, had an interaction with LISK that was memorable. He was in his prime at that point and likely thought his dumping ground was still a secret.

    He's a pimp. Or a wanna be pimp. I think they declined his offers.

    Despite your user name, your post is the most accurate thus far. It’s a mob racket staged to look like a serial killer (a’la Bitrolf and Cottingham).

    These victims were not targeted based on sexual preference or even freedom. These victims were targeted because they ripped people off and/or were compromising a drug trafficking pipeline by potentially cooperating with police.

    This is a RICO case, not a “serial killer” case.

    And...Hackett was the resident mob doctor.
    Shannan got thrown in the marsh instead of buried along the highway because unlike the other times, the cops were coming.

    There was no time to bury her like the rest of the girls.

    I’m seeing the cops finally go in the right direction. That CVS that Shannan and Pak went to just got indicted. EDNY is pulling this together. Also, Pak is soft spoken with no accent and hung out in Manhattan. I wonder if the sister of Melissa ever heard his voice. He already was jailed for trafficking a girl from Asia.

    “Serial killers” are bad for commerce. I think realizing this might be why they need to finish this investigation. It’s sad that their lives might be so invaluable we have to argue commerce but I suppose if that is what it takes, so be it.

    How many of you want to go hang out in Long Island knowing there’s a mad skoosher running around? Not me. I know they didn’t kill them for being hookers, they killed them for other reasons, not their freedom. The died for the freedom of those operating the drug pipeline.

    I think the mob transported, manufactured and wholesaled drugs to the street dealers. Gave some of them mob protection. These dealers/pimps that dated some of the victims were endangering the drug pipeline and/or may have flipped or could have flipped.

    Shannan never got to testify against Ruis for trafficking drugs with Lace Party Girls out of NJ. I think he was a part of that pipeline. That’s probably the real reason Shannan died.

    I think it’s brazen to kill suspected informants. If you do, and the person is an informant, typically the feds will swarm, instantly.

    The “year of the pig” necklace is not an accident. I think this was deliberately left on the victim to designate her as a potential informant or undercover.
    I guess they were wrong. What a waste.

    I wouldn’t expect much from KO. If she knows the truth she knows they’ll kill her, too. Without hesitation. I won’t be okay with this case until EDNY pulls a RICO indictment on it.

    I draw the line with the mob when they kill women, children and innocent people. I never want to hear “we only kill bad guys” come out of their mouths in a TV interview ever again. Sickos.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Thursday, June 28, 2018

    CVS Pharmacy, Inc. to Pay $1.5 Million to Settle Civil Penalty Claims for Violations of The Controlled Substances Act

    CVS Pharmacy, Inc. (“CVS”) has agreed to pay $1.5 million to resolve the United States’ investigation that certain of its pharmacy stores located in Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island violated the federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) by failing to timely report the loss or theft of controlled substances, including hydrocodone, an opioid that is one of the most commonly diverted controlled substances. The CSA requires pharmacies, such as CVS, to timely report the loss or theft of controlled substances so that DEA can promptly investigate.

    Richard P. Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and James J. Hunt, Special Agent-in-Charge, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, New York Division (DEA), announced the settlement.

    “The failure to promptly report the loss or theft of prescription drugs as required by law contributes to the opioid epidemic, which has caused devastating harm to individuals and our community,” stated United States Attorney Donoghue. “The settlement with CVS demonstrates the resolve by this Office and the DEA to use all available tools to address this crisis at every level and reduce the availability of highly addictive, dangerous drugs.”

    “This year, it is estimated that more than two million Americans will suffer from opioid addiction,” stated DEA Special Agent-in-Charge Hunt. “Law enforcement, treatment professionals and educators are arming ourselves with strategies and actions to combat this growing crisis. Through regulatory actions, DEA Diversion investigators and the EDNY identified that CVS violated the Controlled Substances Act. This settlement is significant because it shows that big chain pharmacies, like CVS, are taking responsibility for violating federal law, which is a step in the right direction for curbing the opioid epidemic.”

    CVS is a Rhode Island corporation with its corporate headquarters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. CVS, directly or through its retail pharmacy subsidiaries and affiliates, operates retail pharmacies in the State of New York that dispense prescription drugs, including controlled substances, to retail consumers.

    Opioid abuse has reached epidemic proportions throughout the United States. According to the United States Department of Health & Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), on average 46 Americans died every day from an overdose involving prescription opioids in 2016. In response to the overwhelming number of prescriptions, and the mounting number of overdoses and deaths, two months ago the CDC issued new guidelines recommending that doctors prescribe less addictive and less powerful pain relievers before prescribing highly addictive drugs, and that they prescribe limited amounts.

    This case is the latest in a series of federal prosecutions by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York as part of the Prescription Drug Initiative. In January 2012, this Office and the DEA’s Long Island District Office Diversion Group D-11, in conjunction with the five District Attorneys in this district, the Nassau and Suffolk County Police Departments, the New York City Police Department and New York State Police, along with other key federal, state and local government partners, launched the Initiative to mount a comprehensive response to the increase in opioid abuse. To date, the Initiative has brought over 160 federal and local criminal prosecutions, including the prosecution of 22 health care professionals. The Initiative also has resulted in civil enforcement actions against a hospital, a pharmacy and a pharmacy chain, the removal of prescription authority from numerous doctors and the expansion of information sharing among enforcement agencies to better target and pursue drug traffickers.

    The United States’ case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Diane C. Leonardo of the Office’s Civil Division.

    Today, the Department of Justice also announced a national healthcare fraud takedown that resulted in charges against 601 individuals responsible for over $2 billion in fraud losses, which can be viewed at:

    I would like to state that I do not think these girls were invaluable.

    The pimps worked for LISK as dealers. The LISK was selling them drugs and the pimps were the distributors.

    He makes a statement she left wearing booty shorts and a pink shirt and pink sneakers. September, 2nd, 2010. What was the weather that day? In Babylon, NY? Strange that she would wear that to a $1500 call.

    Switchn,

    First off, I appreciate you & roots contribution to this forum, as a newer member myself who has lurked for the greater part of a decade, your thinking and articulation of these ideas is just what this community should be about.

    I don't think her attire is strange at all, certainly from the perspective of being inappropriate for that time of year. Between 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 p.m. on 9/2/10 the low was 75 degrees. It was very much a summer day/night.

    We have to remember, with all due respect to Amber she was not a "$1500 girl" , the very reason she left was because she was enticed by this seemingly outrageous figure that was well above her pay grade. It proved too good to be true. An escort commanding $1500 regularly may be adorned in high fashion, heels, the type that could be taken on a dinner date. You get it. These are also not ideal targets for killers as they do heavy screening, work with agencies, etc.

    I don't think Amber felt inclined to look the part, after all, the killer responded to her ad and knew what he was getting.
