I predict more of these findings in Holbrook in about two years time.

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

I am from Canada too...I don't know what the climate is like for on the west coast for sex trade workers, but here in Ontario there are some pretty good initiatives for women who are working....Persons at risk department in some local police detachments profiles workers, want's to know them, their routines and has an open door policy for reporting bad tricks, want's everyone to stay safe. London Ontario is pretty good.

Default New Suspect? So far SCPD says "no" ...

I wonder if he will turn out to be the one. You don't just strangle prostitutes and leave their naked bodies in the woods 20 years ago and stop doing it forever. And just because these victims were not dismembered does not necessarily mean it's not him. Many serial killers refine their methods over time. The victims also fit the profile (had been arrested before for prostitution). DNA worked its magic to find him so long after the killings. Interesting that he lives in Manorville also.

A Manorville man will be in court Tuesday to face second-degree murder charges in connection with the beating and strangulation deaths of two women more than 20 years ago, Suffolk police said.

Asked if investigators believe the suspect, John Bittrolff, 48, might be tied to the Gilgo Beach murders -- one of the largest and most baffling homicide cases ever in Suffolk County -- police issued a statement saying: "At this time there is no evidence that these crimes or this defendant is connected to any of the remains found in the vicinity of Gilgo Beach. The investigation into those murders is continuing."

Both Tangredi and McNamee had been arrested previously for prostitution, police said in the archived release.

Detectives at the original crime scenes recovered DNA evidence that linked the case. Over 20 years later, police traced the cold cases to Bittrtolff, police said.

A 48-year-old married father of two has been charged in the strangling deaths of two women whose naked bodies were found in the woods on Long Island more than 20 years ago, police say.

John Bittrolff was arrested at his home in Manorville early Monday on two counts of second-degree murder after detectives linked his DNA to the decades-old crime scenes, Suffolk County police say.
And yet a third victim over 20 years ago? However, back then they thought it was not related. I wonder if they are going to look into this further.

Quote:
Detectives told Newsday in 1994 that a third murder victim, Sandra Costilla of Queens, whose body was found in a wooded area in North Sea 18 days after Ms. Tangredi’s, may have also been connected to the same killer. Two years later, detectives told Newsday they did not have the conclusive evidence that ties her death to the other two murders. No arrest was ever made in the Costilla case.

Agreed. Not only that, but the wiki article linked below mentions other remains found in Manorville that may or may not be connected to the gilgo remains.

99% of the time I dismiss the neighbors/friends who always come out of the woodwork and say stuff like "he was always such a nice guy" and "he's just not capable of this"....but the comments about this guy just don't jive with typical serial killer behavior. Not saying I think he's innocent or guilty, but what what's been reported so far doesn't quite seem to fit previous patterns. What a crazy story.

Very interesting connection, I wonder if he may be the "drifter" spoken about in the book, the one who was sleeping off a drug/alcohol binge at Brewer's place?

There are a number of suspects to look at Jb, pk, pp, Es, jcw. If the caught in a lie the police will know. What about the wig master from steinfeld show, the connection to the new gilgo movie is one related to another.
