It appears the GOP flipped the DA and also will be taking the majority of the Suffolk Legislature, for the first time in more than 15 years.
Is this final? (Is it taking into account absentee/mail-in ballots?)
What will be the consequences of this if true?

2020.05.25 03:48 SACRED-GEOMETRY Timeline of the Long Island Serial Killer case

This is a timeline I posted on /LISKiller. I thought I would share it here in light of recent updates in the case.
Cases with an asterisk* next to them are not officially linked to the Long Island Serial Killer. Although they are not conclusively linked I believe they should be included in the discussion. Victim names are italicized as there's dozens of names to keep track of.
Case summary:
  • The Long Island serial killer (LISK) is an unidentified serial killer who is believed to have murdered 10 to 16 people on Long Island, New York. Some people suspect multiple killers were operating in the same area. Most of the bodies were discovered during a search for Shannan Gilbert, who disappeared after seeing a client in May 2010. Her body was found in 2011. Police were recently ordered to release the audio recording of her 23 minute phone call to police the night we she went missing. This week detectives identified one of the victims using genetic genealogy.
You may find it helpful to use a map while reading:
February 1, 1982*
  • Tina Foglia (19) was last seen in the early morning hours of February 1, 1982 at a rock music venue in West Islip. Her dismembered body was discovered by Department of Transportation workers on February 3 along the shoulder of the Southern State Parkway. Her remains were placed in three separate plastic garbage bags, and were found a few miles north of the Robert Moses Causeway, which leads to Gilgo Beach and Oak Beach. A diamond ring that Foglia was known to wear was missing.
  • The DNA of an unknown male was found on the garbage bags. Police have not ruled out the possibility that Tina Foglia was an early victim of the Long Island Serial Killer.1
  • Tina Foglia:
April 20, 1996
  • Two female legs, wrapped in a plastic bag, are discovered on Fire Island west of Davis Park Beach.
  • The victim's skull would later be found on April 11, 2011 west of Tobay Beach in Nassau County and linked by DNA.1, 2
  • "Jane Doe No. 7 / Fire Island Jane Doe":
June 28, 1997
  • The dismembered torso of an unidentified young African-American female was found in Hempstead Lake State Park, New York. The torso was found in a green plastic container which was dumped next to a road. Both arms, head, and legs below the knee were severed and have not been located. The victim had a tattoo of a heart-shaped peach with a bite out of it on her left breast.1
  • On April 11, 2011, police in Nassau County discovered dismembered skeletal human remains inside a plastic bag near Jones Beach State Park, nicknamed "Jane Doe No. 3". DNA analysis identified this victim as the mother of "Baby Doe."2 She was found wearing gold jewelry similar to that of "Baby Doe."3
  • In December 2016, Peaches and Jane Doe No. 3 were positively identified as being the same person.4
  • "Jane Doe No. 3 / Peaches":
November 19, 2000
  • The body of a woman is discovered by hikers in the Long Island Pine Barrens in Manorville, off of Halsey Manor Road. She was a white woman in her 30s with brown hair. She had been dead for several weeks before her nude, headless body was found, cut into pieces and stuffed in plastic bags.
  • April 4, 2011, her head, hands and right foot were found in a plastic bag in the vicinity of Ocean Parkway on Gilgo Beach.1
  • On May 22, 2020 police in Long Island announced they had positively identified the “Manorville Jane Doe” and will be releasing her identity.2
  • "Jane Doe No. 6 / Manorville Jane Doe":
November 23, 2000*
  • Hunters found the body of a white or Hispanic man in his 20s with black hair in the woods off the eastbound side of the Long Island Expressway (LIE) near Exit 68 in North Shirley. He was wearing light blue-and-white striped GAP boxer shorts. He had "multiple traumatic injuries including crushed larynx" implying he was strangled.
July 26, 2003
  • A naked and dismembered torso, missing its head and hands, was discovered 45 miles east of Gilgo Beach in Manorville, New York.1 The victim was identified as Jessica Taylor (20), an escort from Washington, D.C. She was last seen days earlier at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.2 Taylor's torso was found atop a pile of scrap wood at the end of a paved access road off of Halsey Manor Road, just north of where it crosses the LIE. Plastic sheeting was found underneath the torso, and a tattoo on her body had been mutilated with a sharp instrument. Medical examiners determined the tattoo was a red heart with an angel wing that said, ‘‘Remy’s angel”.
  • On May 9, 2011, it was reported that the remains of a skull, a pair of hands, and a forearm found on March 29 at Gilgo were matched to Jessica Taylor.3
November 10, 2003*
  • A body was found south of the Long Island Expressway in Manorville. Hunters discovered the body in a wooded area several hundred yards from the expressway. Autopsy results were inconclusive (per the newspaper articles linked blow). The victim was Caucasian, 35 to 50 years old, about 5-foot-6 and had died up to four months earlier.1, 2
  • There is speculation that the body could have been dumped at the same time as Jessica Taylor's body.
  • There is not much information about this, aside from a few newspaper articles. Unable to find pages for this victim at DoeNetwork and NamUs. There was an IdentifyUs page that no longer works. If you find any information please contact me.
    • Newspaper articles: 1, 2
March 3, 2007*
  • A suitcase containing the dismembered torso of an unidentified Hispanic or light-skinned African-American female washed up on a beach at Harbor Island Park, in the town of Mamaroneck. One of her dismembered legs washed up at Cold Spring Harbor on March 21, 2007, and her other leg washed up at Oyster Bay in the village of Cove Neck the following day. The victim was determined to have been stabbed to death.1
  • The victim had a tattoo of two cherries on her left breast, which was similar in appearance to the tattoo found on Peaches. Never identified, the victim is referred to as "Cherries" by investigators. "Cherries" was dismembered in a fashion similar to three other victims: Jessica Taylor, "Peaches", and "Jane Doe No. 6", meaning she may be linked to the other official victims.
  • "Cherries":
July 9, 2007
  • Maureen Brainard-Barnes (25) is last seen in her room at the Super 8 Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Her last known call that night is to her sister, Missy, during which she says she is at Penn Station.
  • Shortly after her disappearance, a friend of Maureen's, Sara Karnes, received a call from a man on an unfamiliar number. The man claimed that he had just seen Maureen and that she was alive and staying at a “whorehouse in Queens”. He refused to identify himself and could not tell Karnes the location of the house. He told Karnes he would call back and give her the address, but he never called again. Karnes said that the man had no discernible New York or Boston accent.1
  • Her body was found in December 2010 located very close to three other victims.2, 3
June 27, 2008*
  • The dismembered remains of Tanya Rush (39) were found in Bellmore on a grassy shoulder of the Southern State Parkway, crammed into a small dark suitcase.1
    • Tanya Rush Websleuths threads: 1, 2
July 12, 2009
  • Melissa Barthelemy (24) was last seen outside her apartment on Underhill Avenue in the Bronx. At some point, the security camera of her local bank recorded her depositing $1,000 into her account, believed to be money she'd received from a date she’d had earlier that night. She withdrew $100 before heading out the door. Her boyfriend/pimp, John "Blaze" Terry, would later say that he knew Melissa had lined up another $1,000 date the next night, somewhere on Long Island. She went by the working name "Chloe."1
  • Shortly afterwards, her sister, Amanda, received 6-7 phone calls from a man using Melissa's cell phone and claiming to be her killer.2. The first calls were on July 16, July 19, and July 23 and the final call was on August 26. The calls were placed from crowded locations in New York City, including Madison Square Garden and Times Square. In one instance, police determined that Barthelemy’s phone had been turned on near Massapequa, Long Island, and that someone had gained access to her voice mail.3
  • Her body was discovered December 11, 2010 beside Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.4
May 1, 2010*
  • Shannan Maria Gilbert (23) was a woman who may have been a victim of the Long Island serial killer. Gilbert had been working as an escort. She left for a client's house (Brewer) in Oak Beach after midnight on May 1, 2010. At 4:51 in the morning, 911 dispatchers received a panicked phone call from Gilbert who can be heard saying that there was someone "after her" and that "they" were trying to kill her. She was last seen a short time later banging on the front door of a nearby Oak Beach residence and screaming for help before running off into the night. Neighbors Gus Coletti and Barbara Brennan are among the last to see her.1
  • On December 13, 2011, Gilbert's remains are found in a marsh, half a mile from where she was last seen.2 In May 2012, the Suffolk County medical examiners ruled that Gilbert accidentally drowned after entering the marsh. They believe that she was in a drug induced panic, and have concluded that her cause of death was "undetermined." Her family believes she was murdered.3
May 3, 2010*
  • Two days after Shannan Gilbert's disappearance, Dr. Peter Hackett, an Oak Beach resident and neighbor of Brewer, called Gilbert's mother, Mari Gilbert. He claimed he was taking care of Gilbert, and that he "ran a home for wayward girls." Three days later, he called the mother again, denying that he had any contact with her daughter.
    • Investigators later confirmed through phone records that Hackett called Mari twice following the disappearance. Telephone records show that calls were placed from Dr. Hackett's cellphone on May 3, 2010 and from his home phone on May 6 to Mari Gilbert's cellphone, and on the latter date from Dr. Hackett's home phone to Shannan's sister Sheree's cellphone.
  • The marshy area where Gilbert's remains were found was also noted as near Hackett's backyard. Gilbert's family filed a wrongful death suit against Hackett in November 2012, claiming that he took Gilbert into his home that morning and administered drugs to her, facilitating her death. Later police revealed that Hackett had a history of inserting himself into, or exaggerating his role in, certain major events. Police also noted that Hackett's wife and two children were home on the night of Gilbert's disappearance. Police later ruled out Hackett as a suspect in the deaths of Gilbert and the LISK victims.1
June 5, 2010
  • Megan Waterman (22) was last seen on June 5, 2010 heading toward a nearby convenience store on foot after leaving the Hauppauge Holiday Inn Express.

  • On April 16, 2011, police seized the laptop of Waterman's boyfriend/pimp, Akeem Cruz, to search for records of clients that could lead them to the killer.2 In April, 2012, Cruz pled guilty to federal charges of transporting women across state lines to meet clients for sex.3 In 2013 he was sentenced to three years in prison.4
September 2, 2010
  • Amber Lynn Costello (27) leaves her home in North Babylon to meet a client, never to be seen alive again.

December 13, 2010
  • Near where Melissa Barthelemy (24) was found, police find three more sets of remains, also skeletons wrapped in burlap, later identified as Megan Waterman (22), Maureen Brainard-Barnes (25), and Amber Lynn Costello (27). The bodies are found in the same location, within 500 feet of each of other.1

April 4, 2011
  • Police find three more sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway between Oak Beach and Gilgo Beach, bringing the body count to eight. An unidentified Asian male dressed in women’s clothing; the skull, hands, and foot of the first Manorville Jane Doe (discovered in 2000); and an unidentified girl between sixteen and thirty-two months old described as "Baby Doe".
  • Police later released a sketch of the Asian male. The cause of death was blunt-force trauma.1 He likely been working as an escort and was wearing women's clothing at the time of his death. He was between 17 and 23 years of age, 5' 6" in height, and missing four teeth. He had been dead for between 5 and 10 years. He had some kind of musculoskeletal disorder which would have affected his gait.2
  • DNA analysis identified Baby Doe to be the child of "Jane Doe No. 3 / Peaches."3
April 5, 2011

April 11, 2011
  • Police uncover two more sets of remains in two separate locations.
  • The first discovery: female bones and jewelry found near the Jones Beach water tower. Described as "Jane Doe No. 3". DNA testing determines this is the same victim as Peaches and that she is the mother of the child (Baby Doe) found the week prior along Ocean Parkway.

After a huge backlash, the 'Do Not Resuscitate' order put in place by the NYS Dept of Health has been rescinded.
"Update: State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker rescinded the do not resuscitate order on Wednesday.
“This guidance, proposed by physician leaders of the EMS Regional Medical Control Systems and the State Advisory Council – in accordance with American Heart Association guidance and based on standards recommended by the American College of Emergency Physicians and adopted in multiple other states – was issued April 17, 2020 at the recommendation of the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, and reflected ‎nationally recognized minimum standards,” Jeffrey Hammond, a spokesperson with the state’s Health Department told JEMS in an email. “However, they don’t reflect New York’s standards and for that reason DOH commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker has ordered them to be rescinded.”
