    LE claims they cant release the 911 tapes because they are part of an investigation.
    Investigation?
    LE would have SG 8 phones and laptop if she was connected to any investigation.
    A point JR could bring Up to the judge on the next court date.
    Is there a court date?
    Sadly, I think the LISK case is dead in the water.
    Its over.

    From what I read yesterday, they have a suspect, John Bittrolff, that is already in jail so I honestly doubt that the police will take this any further. Bittrolff in my opinion only seems to be good for the torso killings though.

    They also had two cops as suspects for the murders Bittrolff allegedly did. For one of those cops they have photographs of discarded license plates on the seat of his car. Why do you suppose the cop collected discarded plates?

    I agree. Have been missing in action from discussion for a number of years but coming on today, I wonder if we know if any more bodies have been found matching the mo after John Bittrolff was caught. I've said before that if it was him that he would not of stopped after the 2 , possibly 3 murders near Manorville for so many years in between. I also wonder about the participation of his brother, I would think they would of been really questioning him over the years.

    If there was no concrete evidence tying them to the murder, because they have already been given two 25 to life sentences, they have no reason to confess, which would be the slam dunk, but they won't ,, think his brother knows more.

    I think there's a good chance John Bittrolff is the LISK but he would never confess....he got 2 25 to life sentences and I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to add another 25 to life sentence...

    In the first Lisk forum, I kept zeroing on John Bittrolff. Some would say that because different methods/MOs as far as bodies were concerned- like torso , burlap bags, no burlap bags, time differences between the two groupings on the beach, that is has to be two SK etc. But Rifkin makes my point as to the various ways he disposed of the bodies at least, various ways, but still the same person.

    I think that is so curious that no one brings up ever , the site The Erotic Review that has since closed down its American boards and moved over to Europe to Holland although there is still a place there for Americans to post. I also can't believe that of all the victims none of them did thorough screening, got references, etc. It would or been enlightening if LE had gone though the ladies hard drives for such information.
    I am back after a number of years now and have a terminal illness, but Lisk has always had my attention because I want justice for the woman and their family's.
    . And you are right , its almost impossible at times to get your ad off of a site. mnarmchair

    The ladies hard drives - truth is a couple of folks I know have Gilbert's laptop and also have 8 of her burner phones. Cops know it and they never asked for them.

    Bittrollf? I have doubts he killed anyone. Two cops were suspects in those murders. One was fired some years ago after he pulled a woman over and harassed her for a long period of time. They found missing woman case files in his home.

    The other guy knocked up a 15 year old black girl and had to pay the family off. He regularly had sex with woman when they were brought into the precinct as he was the LT.

    The LT had many discarded license plates in his car when the cops stopped by. Used to go to the local DMV when plates were turned in and thrown into the garbage.

    I finished watching Killing Fields yesterday, which is where I learned about this website. I am curious, does anyone know if during the investigation did the Police ever look into the origin of the Burlap? The reason I ask is because I ranch in Texas and feed (range cubes, rolled oats, corn, etc.) was always packaged in Burlap bags weighing 50# when full. The feed store I have used for 30 years has since changed over to paper sacks. So I ask myself, if the killer, or killers are local, do they have farm animals, or possibly hunt using corn? ( in feeders). Now I know you can't make everyone who raises farm animals, or hunts a suspect, but if the Police has a suspect list, did any on that list have a reason to buy feed? If so, how many feed stores were within a reasonable distance of where the suspects live? When did those feed stores switch from using Burlap to paper? Burlap had many uses and those who bought feed rarely threw empty bags away, like they do with paper. It may be far fetched, but if I were Police I would check to see if my suspects had a Hunting License during the years the murders occurred, or if any had animals requiring feed. Then I would go to the local feed stores and see if any of my suspects did business with them, and if so, did that feed store use Burlap during that period.

    The burlap issue lead me to think about federal, state and local parks and rec departments who transplant trees and large shrubs wrapped in burlap. For that matter landscapers and tree farms use burlap as well. I also believed there was a seasonal correlation between the time of disappearances of the victims and the seasonality of spring, early summer and fall planting seasons. These users of burlap often employ seasonal laborers.

    What may mean something to me is where the bodies were dumped. Were they closer to the Bay side or the highway side. I think it would be safer for someone boating over from Babylon and dumping a body than driving up in a car and putting the body off the side of the road.

    You and I definitely see Burlap as a clue. Burlap has been replaced by paper. The reason feed sacks make sense to me is they are huge. You could easily cover a woman's body in them. If the sack was chicken scratch, it would have bit of corn in the fiber of the bag. Who knows, but if the killer, killer brothers had reason to buy feed, did the investigators research that possibility????

    Good point. When you watch Officials on TV they refer to killers as Cowards. No they are not Cowards, they take risks none of us would ever take in our every day life. I live in Texas, my house has signs, READY FOR A GUN FIGHT, not because I am some Red Neck, high on beer, but because some men are truly bad and I just warn them that I fight, not try to flee. Our killer is not a coward, nor does he fear being caught.
