The family's lawyer said Shannan Gilbert might have been strangled.

Shannan Gilbert lawyer: Death may have been by strangulation | Newsday

I'd like to know what the alibi is for the guy who hired her and who she ran screaming from.

Took all this time for them to reveal she was strangled? Makes sense now...instead of she fell in a marsh and drowned.

Dr says no doubt about it, the results are in direct opposite of what Suffolk autopsy detailed. Hang on folks this is gonna get ugly.


"That theory, Ray said, came from a former police surgeon, Dr. Charles Peter Hackett, who lived near where Gilbert was found. Hackett ran a home for wayward girls, according to neighbors, and claimed never to have met Gilbert, although a neighbor’s affidavit contradicted that statement. Hackett was eyed as a possible suspect and interviewed multiple times at his home, which sits within eyesight of the location where Gilbert’s body was found."

Wonder how close Hackett was with Burke.

Michael Baden, an independent medical investigator retained by Ray on behalf of the Gilbert family, told me Gilbert's hyoid bone, a small, curved part of the throat, was found deformed. He claims that could have been caused by strangulation, but without access to Gilbert's soft tissue, which according to Baden's findings was boiled away soon after the initial autopsy, he was unable to make a definitive determination of her cause of death.
These "may have's" and "could have's" carry a lot of weight in this instance. The bottom line is that nobody will ever know exactly what happened to her unless a killer is caught or turns him/herself in. There's 3 theories I think are possible

1. She was a known junkie. As such, she may have been under the influence and in a state of delirium, ran off into the marshland thinking she was in danger. Maybe she was with her John or her "friend"/bodyguard and misinterpreted something they said or did and ran off.

2. She WAS being pursued by somebody, and managed to get away, but escaped into the marshland where she was unable to get out.

3. She was being pursued by somebody, they caught her, murdered her, and dumped her.

Given the number of other bodies found in the area, I think 2 and 3 are most likely, but I've also dealt with enough junkies to know that #1 is a certain possibility.

Dr. did NOT say "no doubt about it".

"Home for wayward girls"? I remember that guy seemed wacky. He was probably in cahoots with the guy who hired Shannan Gilbert which is why he didn't help her when she went screaming from the guy's house saying someone was trying to kill her. These two plus Shannan's driver who left her there were probably all involved.
