How Websleuths & Filmmakers Sparked A Revelation In Gilgo Murders Case

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York When the biggest story in years broke this month in the unsolved Long Island Serial Killer case, few noticed that an online community of crime buffs and two filmmakers sparked the revelation.The news went national when local investigators reported to a federal database that a DNA match meant partial skeletal remains found on Ocean Parkway in 2011 belonged to an unidentified woman whose torso was discovered in Rockville Centre in 1997, which in turn confirmed the victim—dubbed “Peaches” because of her fruit tattoo—was the mother of the lone child recovered amid the carnage uncovered in the Gilgo Beach murders probe. It was widely reported to be the most significant update in the investigation since the last bodies were found. Although most reports omitted it, the story behind how this forensic clue was unearthed raises as many questions about the case as the news itself.“Unfortunately, we’re playing catch up,” Joseph Giacalone, a retired NYPD cold case investigator told the Press while questioning why authorities didn’t announce Peaches’ link to Gilgo sooner. “We haven’t given her a name yet, but at least we have a connection.”Related Story: Unidentified Murder Victim Dubbed ‘Peaches’ Linked to Gilgo Beach KillingsNews of the link came on the week of the sixth anniversary of police finding the first of 10 murder victims along Ocean Parkway—11 for those that believe the missing woman authorities were looking for at the time, Shannan Gilbert, was also slain, although investigators have said they suspect she accidentally drowned in Oak Beach. Besides Gilbert, five of the victims have been identified. All five were last known to be sex workers.Among the remains were a set of skeletal extremities in a plastic bag found in the brush at Jones Beach State Park in Nassau County on April 11, 2011. It was one of the last discoveries on Ocean Parkway amid a massive search sparked by the unearthing of four women in Gilgo Beach four months prior. The Jones Beach remains were dubbed Jane Doe No. 3 and confirmed via DNA to be the adult relative of the toddler found a week prior about seven miles east, across the county line near Cedar Beach in Suffolk, but the woman didn’t appear to be listed in the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), a federal database designed to help investigators and the public identify John and Jane Does.“There just has to be at least an accurate accounting of these victims,” a man who uses the online pseudonym “Fieldnotes” on Websleuths, a popular online forum for true crime aficionados, was quoted as saying in episode three of The Killing Season, a docu-series about LISK and related cases that recently aired on A&E.Related Story: Did Police Name a Suspect in The Long Island Serial Killer Case?Fieldnotes is widely believed to be the first to bring attention to the fact that Jane Doe No. 3 wasn’t listed in NamUs. The English teacher and Massapequa native who asked that we not use his real name told the Press that he first learned of the omission while attending a vigil for the victims. He provided emails indicating that he first asked the NamUs in February 2013 why Jane Doe No. 3 wasn’t in the database—and continued pressing the issue for years.Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills, the filmmakers that produced The Killing Season, sent the same question to the Nassau County Medical Examiner’s office last month to follow up on Fieldnotes’ observation. The Press sent similar queries to the Nassau ME earlier this month. Eric Smith, a forensic medical investigator in the Nassau ME’s office, confirmed Dec. 13 that the reason Jane Doe No. 3 didn’t appear to be in NamUs is because she was actually Peaches, but the Peaches file wasn’t clarified to reflect that until Dec. 8.“It had always been our…belief that identifying the unidentified along Ocean Parkway would lead to a break in the case and we really believed that the Websleuths community could help do this,” Zeman said.Webslueths’ owner, Tricia Griffith, and longtime website moderator Deb Smith, who goes by the handle Bessie, confirmed that Fieldnotes was the first to bring attention to Jane Doe No. 3’s omission from NamUs. They pointed to it as an example of how the site can help advance investigations.Related Story: Long Island Coroners Seek ID for 38 Unidentified Human Remains“There are still police departments that look at us as annoying and interfering,” Griffith said, “and others see the potential and understand Webslueths is an amazing tool that they can use.”A Suffolk police spokesman told the Press that the news on Peaches “was not a revelation” to their detectives. Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini told Newsday that the department knew of the link for two years. Asked why there was a delay in releasing information that could potentially help identify Peaches and her child, dubbed Baby Doe, both Nassau police and the Nassau medical examiner’s office declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.“There must be a reason why this was not made public,” Zeman said, theorizing that Peaches’ mutilation suggests that she and her child could have died at the hands of the same killer that similarly dismembered three other Ocean Parkway victims whose partial remains were also found scattered on Fire Island and in Manorville over the past 20 years. Authorities have said they believe there is two or more killers that used Ocean Parkway as a dumping ground.Todd Matthews, a spokesman for NamUs, and Dr. Michael Caplan, the chief Suffolk County Medical Examiner, noted that it’s not unusual for found partial remains to be linked via DNA with a previously discovered victim. Matthews doubted that investigators intentionally withheld the information. Giacalone, the former cold case investigator, said that if the information was intentionally held back by authorities, it wasn’t a wise move.“To me, there would be no investigatory reason to withhold that information,” he said. “It would actually benefit Nassau to get that information out there, because at least their clearance rates would improve.”Related Story: Escort Claims Ex-SCPD Chief Burke Paid Her For Sex At Oak Beach Drug Party Amid Gilgo Slayings ProbeAll involved expressed hope that the revelation will help detectives learn the identity of Peaches and Baby Doe. Both the extremities and Baby Doe were found with similar gold jewelry.“If we can ID any of the unidentified, I think that can be the biggest step in the next big break in the case,” said Mills, the filmmaker.Zeman wondered aloud why the update came now. Was it because the anniversary of the case drew increased interest? Because a recently enacted New York State law requiring coroners to post information on unidentified deceased persons into NamUs? Or because so many people were asking about Jane Doe No. 3?“At some point you have to ask yourself, does revealing the fact that there’s a serial killer in both Nassau County and Suffolk County, do the police have a requirement to release that to the public?” Zeman asked. “To somehow say that this is only an issue for sex workers continues to marginalize them. They are human beings and part of the public and therefore this is a public safety issue.”last_img read more

Democrats make final pitch in Iowa hours before first US vote

first_img“Tomorrow, you can ruin Donald Trump’s night!” Biden said as he rallied 1,100 supporters at a Des Moines middle school.”I promise you: if you stand with me, we will end Trump’s reign of hatred and division.”Three of the leading candidates seized on a brief break from their duties as impeachment jurors to barnstorm Iowa.The senators — self-styled democratic socialist Sanders, progressive Warren and pragmatist Amy Klobuchar — each hosted multiple events Sunday.The impeachment trial — only the third in history of a US president — created an unprecedented situation by limiting the senators’ ability to campaign ahead of Iowa’s vote.  They must return to Washington Monday for the trial’s resumption.Senate leaders have scheduled a Wednesday vote that will almost certainly acquit Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.’He’s a communist’ Trump will likely claim victory over Democrats’ efforts to oust him when he delivers his State of the Union speech Tuesday — although he told reporters he would be delivering “a very, very positive message.”That did not stop him from branding Biden “Sleepy Joe” and hurling an epithet at Sanders.”I think he’s a communist,” Trump told Fox News in an interview that aired before the Super Bowl got underway Sunday.With campaigns loath to door-knock during American football’s championship game, some candidates like Sanders and Klobuchar attended Super Bowl watch parties.Underdog Klobuchar argues that her Midwestern roots and propensity to work with Senate Republicans can help her win Iowa and defeat Trump.She compared the big game to the last-gasp nature of the final weekend before Iowa’s vote.”I would call it the Super Bowl of campaigns,” she told supporters in Cedar Rapids.Turnout will be critical, as candidates seek to persuade voters on issues including health care, improving conditions for the working class and ending Washington corruption.They were also pushing their own electability, as Buttigieg did repeatedly on the stump and during Sunday TV talkshows.”I certainly think that I am better positioned to beat Donald Trump than any of my competitors,” Buttigieg told CNN.A former consultant and US Navy reservist who became a mayor at 29, Buttigieg portrays his youth as a reason voters should prefer him over the gray-haired Biden, 77, and Sanders, 78.One in two Iowa voters claimed to still be undecided ahead of the quirky caucus process.Among them was Kim Robinson, 67, a precinct caucus chair in Clive who said he switched support Sunday from Biden to Buttigieg.”And I might change to Amy Klobuchar” before the vote, he told AFP. “Right now it’s a matter of who I think will win” against Trump.At 7:00 pm Monday (0100 GMT Tuesday), Democrats take part in caucuses at about 1,700 venues — schools, libraries, churches — to publicly declare their choice by standing under one candidate’s banner.Candidates who reach 15 percent support can earn delegates for the nomination race. If a candidate does not meet this threshold after the first alignment of caucus-goers, their supporters can shift to other candidates.At that point, the rallies and TV advertising fade away, as neighbors seek to convince and persuade the undecided, or those from unviable candidates, to align with another.Iowans take their role as first-in-the-nation voters to heart, and their pick has a recent historical track record of becoming the Democratic nominee.At an Iowa City home that Warren supporters were using as a base, people streamed in and out, looking for extra posters or lists of doors that still needed to be knocked on.Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, a marine biologist, traveled from far-off New York to help Warren.”Having a good showing in Iowa is so important to build momentum,” Johnson said.Topics : “This is the most consequential election, certainly in the modern history of this country… and it all begins tomorrow night,” Senator Bernie Sanders, the leading progressive in the race, told invigorated supporters at a meet-and-greet event in Iowa City.Similar scenes played out across the state this weekend as most of the 11 remaining candidates made their final push to convince undecided voters that they are best positioned to defeat Trump.Monday’s caucuses have created an air of suspense with no clear frontrunner. Several hopefuls look to strike gold here and seize the momentum going into the next contest, in New Hampshire on February 11.Leftist Sanders holds only a narrow lead over moderate former vice president Joe Biden. South Bend, Indiana ex-mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Elizabeth Warren are mere points behind. Democratic candidates made their frantic, final campaign pitches Sunday in Iowa, on a mission to persuade undecided voters one day before the state’s nominating contest officially starts the US presidential election season.Iowa, a largely rural state of three million people, has traditionally served as a vital launching point — or burial ground — for presidential hopefuls.Even as all eyes turn to the debut vote, Donald Trump’s US Senate impeachment trial weighs over the Democratic kick-off, with the president expected to be acquitted just days after the Iowa contest.last_img read more

Claudio Ranieri backs Chelsea to finish in the top four

first_img Chelsea beat Porto 2-0 on Wednesday to reach the Champions League knockout stages and Ranieri reckons they will soon hit form in the Premier League. “Their record does not mean anything as Chelsea are Chelsea and Mourinho is Mourinho,” he said. “I’m sure at the end of the season they will be in the top four. I still think they will make the Champions League. For now it is bad luck but when they start to win they will arrive. “I respect them a lot because I watched the match last night. They played very well with good concentration. They are used to doing this as they are the champions. Sooner or later they will start. “It was good for Chelsea to win and now in two or three months everything will change. I’m sure they will be ready to fight.” Mourinho replaced Ranieri at Stamford Bridge to start his first spell in 2004 and the Italian insisted he has moved on since leaving 11 years ago. “Chelsea for me means a lot because I worked there for four years. I’m very proud to have been their manager. But that’s an old story and now my focus is on Leicester,” said Ranieri. Leicester are without defender Ritchie de Laet (ankle) for Monday’s game and Ranieri also expressed his sympathy for Garry Monk after he was sacked by Swansea on Wednesday, following the Foxes’ 3-0 win in Wales on Saturday. “I’m very sad Garry Monk has lost his job as they played very well without scoring goals. I’m so sorry,” he added. The defending champions have lost four of their last six Barclays Premier League games and manager Jose Mourinho admitted they could miss out on qualification for the Champions League after the weekend’s surprise loss to Bournemouth. Ranieri, who managed Chelsea between 2000 and 2004, has taken the Foxes to the top of the league as the season’s shock package and they host 14th placed Chelsea on Monday.

For Family Promise of Monmouth County, Home is Where the Heart…

first_imgDespite her job at the Goddard School in West Long Branch, Hooten lacked the financial resources to afford an apartment for herself and her children. For the board members, staff members, legislators, volunteers and donors who worked to make it happen, this was a moment to celebrate: A day to cut the ribbon on a reality that began as a dream – the dream of having a stable home for the agency whose mission is to help homeless families find stable homes of their own. OCEANPORT – The red brick building at 501 Malterer Ave. was as crowded as a holiday party last Friday as supporters of Family Promise of Monmouth County gathered to celebrate the official opening of the agency’s day center for homeless families on a site formerly part of Fort Monmouth. FPMC, an affiliate of thenational Family Promiseorganization, paid FMERA$1 for a 99-year lease on the2,800-square-foot buildingand 2-acre site. The nonprofit investedapproximately $125,000 torenovate and improve thebuilding for its new mission. Anthony and Tatiana Rivera were among that number in 2018, when their mother, Suheil Hooten, found herselfwithout a home following theend of her marriage. The nonprofit is one of three social service agencies supporting the homeless that was granted the right to occupy a building at the former Fort Monmouth by the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA). The day center includesa comfortable living room,a fully stocked playroom,locker space where familiescan store their belongings,two showers, a kitchen, alaundry room and officespace for the agency’s threefull-time employees. Behind success stories like Hooten’s is a corps of volunteers from area religious congregations who work together to provide shelter, food and a constellation of services that support FPMC families as they tackle the obstacles that stand between them and stability. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Monmouth County is the fifth wealthiest of New Jersey’s 21 counties, with an annual median family income of over $100,000. Nevertheless, some 200 children in this county become homeless every year. Those employees are supported by an estimated 1,200 volunteers from area Protestant, Catholic and Jewish faith communities who do everything from making sandwiches to wielding sledgehammers. By Eileen Moon “It was very hard as a single mom with two kids to have to give up and say, ‘What am I going to do?’ ” she said. Fortunately, she found Family Promise. “They put a roof over my head. Me and my children had a safe haven. They provided all our meals. That gave me an opportunity to save every penny that I had. It was just amazing. They really provided time for me to do what I needed to do.” Today, Hooten and her two children have a three-bedroom apartment in Freehold that she was able to afford with the help of FPMC’s savings match program that doubled the money she set aside from her paycheck to cover the cost of a security deposit. “We’ve been working ongetting into this buildingsince 2008,” said FPMCboard vice president MikeMeriton. “The great ironyof this is that our missionis to help families in needget a permanent home andwe didn’t have a permanenthome ourselves.” “We are a small team but we are a dedicated army,” said FPMC executive director Christine Love. “Everything that you see in this building, we did with blood, sweat and tears.” “I was homeless as a child, but I was also homeless as an adult,” Love told the gathering Friday. Despite those struggles, she eventually graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in social work, followed by a master’s in business administration. “It doesn’t matter where you stop,” she said. “It matters that you keep going.”last_img read more

Game time is 7 p.m. After being called out by head coach Terry Jones, the top line of Ryon Sookro, Chris Derochie and Colton Donselaar came to play as the trio combined for 10 points.“Our top line is a minus-four in the series which is not good enough,” said Jones following game four’s 9-1 collapse in Nelson. Sookro, who has been invisible for most of the series, especially the two games in Nelson, led the charge with three goals, including two in the four-goal first period.The pair by Sookro, combined with single from Arie Postmus and Daniel Bishop, allowed the Hawks to grab a 4-1 lead.Colton Malmsten and Gavin Currie with a shorthanded tally, his second in two games, gave Nelson some life as the Leafs cut the margin to 4-3.But Sookro, who played his entire minor hockey in Nelson, scored on the power play and Donselaar added a single late in the frame to restore the three-goal advantage for the Hawks.Nelson tried to get back into the game with a strong third period, out shooting Beaver Valley 15-8. But Michael Vlanich, pulled during game four, rebounded to shutout the Leafs.“Mike’s been our rock all year long,” said Jones. “He’s been the reason why we finished where we did (in the standings).” Marcus Dahl scored the other goal for Nelson.The third-period surge allowed Nelson to out shoot the Hawks 36-33.BLUELINES: The Hawks rebounded on the power play scoring three times. . . .Beaver Valley center Dallas Calvin, who at one time was tied for the playoff lead in scoring, had a point and now sits tied for sixth in the post-season race. . . .Connor Enright tried to shift the momentum back to the Leafs with a third-period tilt against Jean-William Caron. . . .Joel Stewart was once again not in the lineup for Nelson as Leaf coach Chris Shaw went with most of the same line up that won game four. . . .Patrick Martens led Nelson in scoring with two assists. . . .Colton Donselaar and Ryon Sookro each had four points to lead the Nitehawks. . . .The series winner meets the Castlegar Rebels who knocked off Spokane Braves in the other Murdoch semi final 4-1.
