Is There More than One Serial Killer Stalking Long Island
The body of a womans torso was located on June 28, 1997 in
Hempstead, New York. Police do not have much to go on except that she was
black or biracial and had a picture of this two inch tattoo of peach
shaped like a heart with a bite taken out of it and two drops falling. The
tattoo was on the deceased womans breast. Police eventually located
a tattoo artist out of Bristol, Connecticut who claimed to have created
that tattoo for a woman prior to 1997. There is not much known about the
victim except that she was seen with a friend from the Bristol area. The
deceased woman also indicated that she was from New York and was planning
to see friends in East Hartford that night. The tattoo artist estimated
her age to be 18-20 years old. The woman also had an abdominal scar, which
could have resulted from a caesarean section. It is possible that this
woman has relatives living in Connecticut that could identify this woman
by her tattoo. If you know who this woman is please contact the Nassau
County Police Department at 1-800-244-TIPS. For additional information

In December 2010, the remains of four white adult females were Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Amanda Costello and Melissa Barthelemy were found near Gilgo Beach, in Suffolk County, NY. The area is off of the interstate, the Ocean Parkway in southern Long Island. The areas where the victims were found were remote and not easily seen. The four had been found in burlap sacks and all had advertised their services as prostitutes on the website Craigslist. In one case, the sister of one of the victims had been taunted by the killer via (victim's) cellphone. Police came across the bodies when they were looking for the possible human remains of 24 year old, Shannan Gilbert. Like the previous four victims, Gilbert had also advertised her escort services on Craigslist. She had last been seen near the area where the women were found. IT is believed that she may also be a victim of the same killer that left four victims in the burlap bags. As Law Enforcement widened their search additional bodies were found including two in nearby Nassau County. One is of an Asian male (late teens to twenties), a female toddler (less than two years old) was also found. Police believe that two other bodies found maybe from a different serial killer. The head, hands and forearms of then 20 year old Jessica Taylor. Taylor was a street prostitute whose torso was found around forty-five miles away in Eastern Long Island in Manorville years earlier in July 2003. When her torso was found, the killer tried to remove the tattoo from her body. Ultimately it was her tattoo that led to her identification. Another female (composite sketch center)was butchered similarly in Manorville in November 2000 when hunters found her decapitated body in a wooded area near Halsey-Manor Road. Her additional remains including her head were found not far from the other victims. The identity of this female remains unknown (a sketch of what she looks like is above on the left). The fact that these two women had their bodies scattered in areas near each other leads law enforcement to believe that this maybe the spot of more than one killer. Another victim pictured above had her skull found in the area and her legs were found in a garbage bag in 1996 west of Davis Park Beach. Along the same stretch of highway the remains of an unidentified Asian male (composite sketch, age 17 - 20 believed) was found. An unidentified female toddler and the remains of her nameless biological mothers were found miles apart not far from other bodies.
There have been other bodies of women dismembered on Long Island. However, Police believe that as many as four killers are responsible for the bodies found near this stretch of the Ocean . IF you have any information about this case, please call the Suffolk Police Department at 800-220-TIPS. You can remain anonymous.
Decades Later, Who is this John Doe?
On April 2, 1985 the body of a white male estimated to be around 25 to 35 years of age was found in the town of Philipstown, New York. It is believed that he was deceased for around twenty months and that he was found 8/10ths of a mile west of the Taconic State Parkway. At the time of his death, he wore a dress shirt that had yellow, blue and red stripes and size 10 dark brown Dunham work boots. He wore three pairs of pants; dungaree shorts, beige corduroy shorts, and green army type long pants. Four pairs of underwear sizze 34 and three pairs of white socks. It is believed around 5 feet 10 inches tall with white hair. At one time he had worn braces. Also found on him were a hair comb, two plastic prayer cards, dental floss and a map of the New York / New Jersey areas. If you have any information about who this person might be, please contact the New York State Police Troop K at 845-298-0398. All calls can be confidential.

Two Unidentified Murder Victims in Two Different States, With New York Connections,
In Late September of 2009, Police Departments from three states have made strides in getting closer to solving this woman's identity. They have linked her with an older female that was murdered around the same time (8 days later) in the Tolland State Forest in Massachusetts. Police believe the two victims are mother/daughter. The victim in this case may have been bi-racial or hispanic. She wore glasses and been killed by a gunshot wound to the head. Her age could have ranged between 30-45 years. The victim smoked and had poor dental hygiene but had an upper and lower bridge work with only a few of her own natural teeth left. Physical evidence points them to the Albany, New York area where they may have spent the better part of a year before their deaths. To see a sketch of the Massachusetts victim please visit here.
The area where the younger female was found has also had three other murder victims nearby (see Connecticut Cold Cases page). Of those three, two have been identified and police do not believe the death of the two women from the Albany area are linked in any way. IF you have any information about the murder(s) or identities of these two murder victims please call the New Britain, Connecticut police at 860-826-3069 or 860-826-3000. Or you can call the Massachusetts State Police at 413-747-4810.
UPDATE: July 23, 2014 The identity of the two females are 17 year old Elizabeth Honsch and her 52 year old mother Marcia Honsch. They were from the town of Brewster, New York. 70 year old Robert Honsch, also known as Robert Tyree was arrested for the murders of his wife and their daughter. More details to come.
Young Murder Victim, No Name, No Killer(s)
There are some clues about the victim. She had tooth decay yet no broken bones. She had not been sexually assaulted. An unusual characteristic was that she had tanlines when she was found. Her hair was also lightly frosted in her front which at the time was a popular hairstyle. The tanned complexion brings into question if she was from another part of the country or had just came back from a tropical vacation. For more information about the victim please visit the Doe Network Page for the victim .
If you have any information about this victim, please call the Livingston County Sheriff's Office 585-243-7120.

Who Murdered Upper Eastside Jewel Salesman
Same Suspect in Two Different Disappearances
In Connelly, New York, on July 5, 1994 Laura Louise Smith Williams was last seen getting in a four door older model white car. The car had two unidentified white males and they were at her residence at the Connelly Trailer Park. It is unlikely that Smith Williams took off voluntarily. The 22 year old suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and had three children. Foul play is suspected in her case.
An unnamed individual has claimed to know where evidence may be in both cases. This person is taken seriously by law enforcement but there is not enough evidence for an arrest.
