Long Island Serial Killer May Be An Officer

April 11, 2011  | 

Investigators are now considering the possibility that the serial killer who has dumped at least eight bodies of prostitutes at a Long Island beach could be a law enforcement officer.

According to sources familiar with the case, the killer may have a detailed knowledge of police techniques because he or she allegedly placed several taunting phone calls to a murder victim's relative, reports ABC News.

The calls were placed from crowded spots like New York's Penn Station, where even if police were able to trace the cell signal, it would be next to impossible for surveillance cameras to single out the killer.

Also, the calls were all less than three minutes. Typically it takes three to five minutes for law enforcement to trace a call.

Anything is possible, but I seriously doubt it. Just another way to lure out the killer. They probably already know who it is and are trying to piss him off to get him to slip up. What better way then to take the credit for his/shes crimes away from a serial kille.

With all of the viewers watching all of the tv programs and movies about good and bad police work and all of our trainging secrets being put out on the media by you so called police advisors,it's a wonder that there aren't more perfect murders or crimes being perpetrated by the informed public.I hope you all are making alot of money at other officers expense.I had to call and ream out a reporter for printing information about the 21foot rule,she shouldn't have been told about it and she shouldn't have printed it,regardless of the fact that the rule has changed.Stop telling the media about our training procedures,it's one thing if it comes out as testimony but telling the media is irresponsible.

Treat the media like a mushroom,keep them in the dark and feed them bullpuckey.That retired cop giving info on those homocides in N.Y.just wanted his fifteen minutes of fame,but throwing accusations towards officers is counter productive,every citizen will be looking cross-eyed at you,just because somebody wanted to stand on a soapbox.
