DA Disputs Single Killer Theory for Gilgo Beachon December 15, 2011 in Law Enforcement, Unsubs by Brian Combs
Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota told legislators at a county hearing that he believes more than one killer may be responsible for the ten sets of human remains found on and around Gilgo Beach.
Spota made specific reference to the male victim, who was found dressed in women’s clothing and had a different cause of death.
He also disputed claims by Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer that all victims have been tied to the sex industry. Spota said that too little is known about one of the sets of remains to say who she was, or what she did for a living.
I can’t say one way or another about the latter point, as I don’t have access to the real data, but the male victim is easy to explain.
It’s been reported that he was small in stature, dressed in women’s clothing, and beaten to death. It’s not difficult to envision a scenario where the Gilgo Beach Serial Killer hired what he thought was a female prostitute, in order to kill her.
Sometime after “she” arrived, the unsub discovered that “she” was actually a “he”. In a rage, the unsub beats the transvestite to death, and dumps the body in his preferred area.
I don’t see anything that really indicates multiple killers, but we’re certainly not being given all the facts.
