Is Long Island Serial Killer Victim Helping Cops Beyond the Grave?
In all the talk about the Long Island "Jack the Ripper" case and the four murdered women already identified, one name is standing out: Shannan Maria Gilbert. She's the 24-year-old New Jersey woman who went missing last May and started this whole ball rolling. Without the search for Gilbert, police would not have discovered the four decomposing bodies in Oak Beach, Long Island last December, nor the four more discovered over the weekend about a half-mile away, leading authorities to believe that a serial killer is on the loose on the South Shore.

The case is being named after the famous "Jack the Ripper" murders in London in the 1800s because all of the victims so far have been prostitutes, as was Gilbert.

But here's where the mystery deepens: Shannan Gilbert was not one of the bodies found last December. She was not one of the bodies found this past weekend. So where is she?

Police being interviewed on the TV and radio said they fully expected Gilbert to be one of the four recent bodies. It makes perfect sense based on the last time Gilbert was seen alive on May 1, 2010, in the same general area off Ocean Parkway near Cedar Beach where the bodies were found.
