Suspected Long Island Serial Killer Murdered Prostitutes Who Advertised on Craigslist
It's official: the Daily News says Suffolk County cops are pretty sure the speculated Long Island serial killer really is a serial killer. Better (worse?) yet, he's a Craigslist serial killer. Police say they've finally identified the bodies they found along Long Island's Oak Beach last month, and each was a missing prostitute who advertised on Craigslist.
Local press had previously speculated that the "skeletal remains" were the work of a serial murderer, and the FBI was quick to offer its help with the case (because, after all, Craigslist + murder + hooker basically = headlines). Yet despite all that federal assistance and "swarming" a local man's house, there have been no arrests in the case.
