Bodies Found on Long Island Beach
Wall Street Journal Online ^ | 12/13/2010 | Associated Press

Posted on 12/13/2010 8:21:35 PM PST by LonePalm

BABYLON, N.Y.—Four bodies have been discovered at a beach on Long Island during a search for a missing New Jersey woman.

Suffolk County police say three bodies were found Monday at Oak Beach, which is on a remote barrier island that divides the Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

The bodies were near where skeletal remains were discovered over the weekend.

Police were continuing to search into Monday evening.

A police canine unit searching the area Saturday came upon the first body. The unit was searching the area in response to a missing-person report made in May after Jersey City, N.J., resident Shonnan Gilbert vanished.

Oak Beach is one of a series of beaches run by towns and municipalities. The bodies found there haven't been identified.

Sounds like the area has been being used as a dumping ground for bodies for awhile.

Babylon is a town on the South Shore of Long Island.

I grew up on the North Shore. As a kid growing up, I would visit West Babylon all the time.....my grand parents lived there, as well as two aunts, two uncles, and eight first cousins. It’s a suburb of New York City.

Geraldo Riviera hails from West Babylon, as does Jessica Hahn, the PTL Club secretary (from the scandal involving Jim Baker). I don’t believe the town has a port.

Isn’t Babylon the transfer point on the LIRR for Fire Island? Could be a pretty nasty story by the time it’s all revealed.

Newsday is indicating that the first victim may be a prostitute.

I have a feeling they are all prostitutes and all have the same killer.

Do you know if the original missing person from NJ is/was a prostitute? Seems kind of strange that she went missing in May and a LI canine squad would be looking for her in December.

Thanks july4th, I just find that astounding... Biblical commentators disagree about “Babylon” in Revelation all the time, whether it’s literal or figurative. I’ve always thought America fits the description, so for “Babylon” to be a town in what looks like the center of New York? That’s kind of mind blowing.

These are the parts that sounded like us a few years ago. We’re not so economically sound now though:

“The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver...

The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’
19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

The girl from Jersey was meeting a Craigslist client on or near Fire Island. That’s how she ended up on Long Island.

Any female going to meet someone for any reason alone from Craigslist is looking for Mr. Goodbar IMO.

There can’t be any good deal on any thing IMO in the world to risk ones chance of meeting up with a no good killer.

OK, sorry, I was too dense to pick that up.

Obviously, I’m not big on that trade, but I despise those sickos who think that because someone is a prostitute, she is dispensable at his will.

On the south shore of western Suffolk, LI. IIRC Rodney Dangerfield grew up there. It’s train station is a hub for the LIRR’s eastern lines connection to the city. Pricy homes south of Main St. Nice downtown.

Thanks buccaneer. I’m still amazed anyone would name their town Babylon, especially near the heart of New York, Wall Street...that is mind boggling.

That had to be an “in-your-face” gesture towards God. They had to have known. My gosh if anything happens in New York, merchants from the ocean would probably have to look over “Babylon” to see the smoke.

Incredible.

I wonder if this is at all relatyed to the FBI suspect Ron Erwin. Erwin is being investigated with regard to the murders of many prostitutes from Albuquerque.

Erwin became a suspect in August. Police raided his home and businesses and found a huge cache of women’s photographs, many looking druuged or dead.

Erwin is a “photographer” and it is thought he used this ruse to lure women to remote destinations. He is on several photo blogs, and has tgraveled, with his cameras, to farflung places in India, Pakistan, Thailand, etc.

OK, thanks. Sometimes Twitter has breaking news that cannot be found anywhere else.

Ron Erwin has traveled a lot, and it is not inconceivable that he was on Fire Island last May. He is a really creepy person. I hope the FBI is keeping a close watch on him.

His “type” were prostitutes with dark hair, small and thin.

God help these poor girls!

It may be another Craig’s List killer. The Gilbert girl from NJ advertised her services on CL, and also another missing girl, from Maine, who disappeared in Hauppage, LI, in June.

The serial killers don’t have to work too hard these days. The girls deliver themselves up.
