A haunting mystery: Man says he dumped his dead cousin in Meadowlands, but where is the body?
Star Ledger ^ | July 29, 2012 | By Kevin Manahan/The Star-Ledger

Jessica Calicchio comes here often to make sure the flame still flickers, and she waits for a message from beyond, a sign, anything. Nearly four years ago, her 22-year-old boyfriend, Jordan Voorhees, was shot twice in the head by his cousin, and the body supposedly dumped somewhere in this Meadowlands maze of reeds and lagoons — the graveyard, history says, for many bad deeds.

Investigators were never able to find the body or determine whether the killer, Peter Toscano, and his father, Gerald, actually discarded it where Gerald said they did. ...

But where to look? With a confession in hand, Essex County investigators abandoned the search after two weeks of erratic canvassing, interrupted by bad weather, in the fall of 2008. In the end, they were convinced the body had been dumped elsewhere, had floated out with the tides or had become food for crabs, according to Anthony Ambrose, chief of investigators for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Crabs are the wood chippers of the sea. My brother witnessed the body of a woman who jumped from a bridge into the bay to kill herself. The tide was low and she jumped into a muddy muck under about a foot of water. The crabs ate her mid-torso section down to the bone in about two hours according to the cops. Her head and shoulders were above the water and she was buried in the muck up to her hips.

The open ocean isn't so bad, but tidal waters and bays are the all you can eat buffets in nature's plan.

Did they encounter any OTHER human remains if it is known as such a dumping ground?
