Is it just one killer? A pair? Or a ring?
It's a queer place, Gilgo Beach on Long Island. With its overgrowth and swamps, this strip of godforsaken wasteland--only a hop, skip and jump from Manhattan via Ocean Parkway--is becoming the ideal place to dump dead bodies in. In fact, one can almost picture poor old Jimmy Hoffa comfortably resting out here.
Sometimes the killer dismembers their corpse and scatters the parts around Gilgo just like fertilizer. Sometimes they feel lazy or in a rush, so they simply stuff the body into a cheap suitcase and toss it from the side of the highway. Sometimes they drag the dead far out into the bogs and sink them way down into the bracken swampwater so the evidence will quickly wash away. Sometimes they wrap the body in burlap bags and even bury them, almost like a landscaper....
GILGO: The Long Island Serial Killer
Solving the case that nobody else wanted to.
'LISK' CASE FACTS & KILLER PROFILE:
The murdered remains of prostitutes have recently begun resurfacing at Gilgo Beach in Long Island, a remote and swampy place along Ocean Parkway where they were all pitilessly tossed after they were beaten, tortured and strangled.
The discovery of the dumping ground at Gilgo and at a number of other neighboring beachfronts in 2010 has many citizens, plus the FBI, fearing a serial killer may be active in the Long Island district--a thrill-killing psychopath who’s targeting workers of the sex trade as easy prey since they are so rarely missed by anybody, and because, unfortunately, their disappearances are generally a low priority to law enforcement.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations, while not yet formally involved with the Gilgo investigation, is expert at hunting and apprehending such offenders, with extensive databases and virtually unlimited resources at their disposal. Here is the profile that trained criminologists have compiled for the, thus far unknown, Long Island Serial Killer:
- white male in his mid twenties to mid forties
- well-spoken and college educated
- financially secure, has a job and a vehicle
- knowledge of police procedures and forensics
- charming and/or in a position of trust
- methodical sadist, sexually deviant
- careful - classified as ‘organized’ serial killer
- lives in the NYC area, familiar with Gilgo region
What exactly is a "FROST'D manager" and who in the world is "Gates, Wyley Mr." of Brooklyn NY, a borough in New York City that's but a hop, skip, and jump from Gilgo Beach and Ocean Parkway?
An acronym for Foundation for the Research of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, the FROST’D organization provides confidential outreach services and programs exclusively to individuals within the NYC metropolitan region who work in the sex trade, as well as to prostitutes who identify themselves as transgendered and those who are also habitual substance abusers.
From the FROST’D corporation's online mission statement: “While the agency got its start in serving prostitutes, our experience in reaching out to and serving female, male and transgender minority street-based sex workers results in much more than a renowned and respected reputation as ‘that agency that works with prostitutes.’ Our work with a severely traumatized, vulnerable, mistrusting and fragile population taught FROST'D the very principles of harm reduction years before this term.”
So, does the Long Island Serial Killer work in a managerial position providing confidential services to New York City prostitutes...? Could the killer be a former convicted felon and a self-confessed mass murderer...?
