Update on Shannan Gilbert Searchon December 8, 2011 in Unsubs by Brian Combs
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said Wednesday that while no remains of Shannan Gilbert were found, they did find her clothing, a cellphone, and a pocketbook with an ID.
They believe Shannan drowned, and has nothing to do with the ten bodies found on nearby Gilgo Beach. Said Dormer:
It’s very easy to get engulfed with water, muck, and fall down and not be able to get out of there. We surmise that’s what happened to Shannan and she’s in there some place and we’re going to do everything we can to find her.
Based upon the information given by witnesses, it seems to me that Shannan had some sort of psychotic break or drug induced panic, and ran out into the water and drowned.
Truly a sad story, but I don’t think she was murdered.
