Police now believe that the killer of at least 4 of the victims found dead along Gilgo and Jones Beaches may have some kind of police training or has understanding of police investigative techniques. New York City police investigators say that when the victims' cell phones are turned on and calls made to taunt the victim's families, the calls are made in very crowded pedestrian areas. Times Square and Madison Square Garden were used to make calls so that police couldn't pick out one person using a cell phone from of a crowd when viewing surveillance cameras near when the time of the call was registered.
"“He is a guy who is aware of how we utilize technology,” one investigator said. “Frankly, people are thinking maybe he could be a cop” — either one still in law enforcement or one who has moved on.
“Without question, this guy is smart, this guy is not a dope,” the investigator continued. “It’s a guy who thinks about things.”
Also, the caller kept each of his vulgar, mocking and insulting calls to less than three minutes, according to the dead woman’s mother, Lynn Barthelemy. The caller made about a half-dozen calls over roughly five weeks to the victim’s sister."
Police also say there are some discrepancies from the 4 bodies found late last year vs the latest finds. They won't go into specifics about the differences but said it could either be another killer (very slim chance there) or the differences show a killer honing his craft. The four bodies found in December were wrapped in burlap sacks.
If you have any information on these cases please don't wait for another round of bodies to start turning up. #1 the guy knows police are wise to him so he could easily change his killing grounds to somewhere closer to YOU and #2 these killers who think they are smarter than the police tend to get tripped up by small details that come forth from the public. Even if you think you saw something or heard something you may well have. Do contact authorities.
