Sounds like you put a lot of thought into this...

The harsh truth.

So is this latest body found in Bay Shore the work of the Gilgo beach killer? Also read limbs were found in West Hempstead but no confirmation on a match.

He's either got leaky trash bags or he's bored and just tossing body parts from his vehicle.

I don't think this murder is related to Gilgo. This was a mom of 4 kids from Brooklyn. Very sad.

Most likely unrelated.

Yes. Tattoos on the dismembered body consistent with those on the missing Brooklyn woman.

I'm from Canada and I don't know how many of you heard of our own serial killer, Robert Pickton. But the fact that he killed prostitutes, kept the police force apathetic and unwilling to even acknowledge that a serial killer was at work. He managed to kill 49 such unfortunates. Now, had he chosen, say, doctors' wives or the like, how long do you think he would have continued to kill?? The police would have jumped on it with both feet.

Sadly, society at large appears to value people by their personal wealth or the respectability of their jobs.

Any word if the limbs found were related to woman?
