Police on Long Island have discovered four more bodies, three of which they have connected to the so-called Craigslist serial killer. If you recall back in December the bodies of Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Melissa Barthelemy, and Amber Lynn Costello. (pictured) All four of them were prostitutes that advertised on craigslist.
At this point it is unknown if the 3 victims found recently were prostitutes as they have not yet been identified.
All the victims bodies were found while authorities searched for another missing prostitute, Shannan Gilbert. Ms. Gilbert is said to be not one of the victims that they found recently.
Sources from New York law enforcement are saying that the sister of Melissa Barthelemy has received taunting phone calls from her sister’s cell phone. Barthelemy is one of the four victims killed by what police believe is a serial killer that used craigslist to find his victims.
Barthelemy’s sister had received taunting calls that said things like “Do you know what your sister is doing? She’s a whore.”
The calls were traced to the areas of Times Square and Madison Square Garden but police don’t know if the calls were made by the killer himself.
The calls were received in July of 2009 right after Barthelemy’s disappearance.
