(Rev A: Added final paragraph)
The shooter [apparently David Berkowitz], meanwhile, climbed into the passenger's side of another car, Levine said. That vehicle then drove off -- followed closely by a third car. The third auto, Levine said, appeared to be an UNMARKED POLICE CAR.
"All three were involved together," Levine said. "one of them was blue. I was trying to get plate numbers, so I didn't pay much attention to the makes.But that last one looked just like an unmarked cop car. I got a good view of that."from The Ultimate Evil by Maury Terry, 1st edition, p 424 (Dolphin 1987)
If Levine's account is accurate, the presence of an unmarked vehicle wouldn't be surprising: three former or present Yonkers officers were previously suspected to me member of the cult.
After graduating from beauty school, Melissa moved from her small hometown near Buffalo to New York City to work as a hairdresser.from Was Shannan Gilbert a victim of the Long Island serial killer?
"I was terrified," Lynn said. "I mean, a big city like that. I'm like that's - 'they're gonna eat you alive.' But she was of age and all I could say was 'be careful' and call her all the time."
What Lynn didn't know at the time was that Melissa was actually working as an escort. In mid July 2009, after several days with no word from Melissa, Lynn panicked.
"Did she get hurt?" Lynn wondered. "We pull out the phone book, we get on the internet. We start callin' hospitals."
Lynn also contacted the NYPD to file a missing persons report, but she was in for a rude awakening.
"THEY DIDN'T WANNA HEAR ANYTHING," she said. "'She's 24. She's not on any psych meds. She's not missing. She's where she wants to be.' And that happened for three days consecutively."
EVEN THE FAMILY'S ATTORNEY, STEVEN COHEN, COULDN'T GET POLICE TO TAKE NOTICE.
"I contacted them," he said. "And they said, 'She's a hooker. She's a prostitute. She was - she's an escort... We're not going to assign a detective to this."
About a week after Melissa disappeared, her 15-year-old sister, Amanda, got a call from Melissa's phone.
And the calls didn't stop coming. Eight in total, including one in which the likely killer spoke to Lynn. HE CLAIMED HE WAS WITH THE NYPD and wanted to know if she had filed a missing persons report. But mainly he focused on Melissa's little sister AND CALLED TO TERRIFY HER.
It's clear to me that the police were protecting the killers by dragging their feet until any evidence of the killers had been destroyed by the elements. The fact that they dehumanized the victims indicates that they might have been aware of why they were selected as victims.
Rev A: I initially misinterpreted the body-dump map above (found here) and believed that the sites "straddled" the ley line running across Long Island. Not that it matters, because what matters is the relationship between the murder sites and the Earth Grid. So, the most interesting aspect of the case is how the police foot-dragging prevented them from being able to obtain any forensic evidence, and might have facilitated some of the murders. Another aspect of interest is a possible correlation between the "Son of Sam" ("Sam" is actually a reference to Samael, a demon, whose "children" are those he possesses) killings and the construction of the WTC, and the Long Island killings and the destruction of the WTC and subsequent global Satanic reign of terror known as the "war on terror." From this perspective, the Long Island murders might have been a hint about the true nature of the "war on terror," which brings me back to the title of this entry: waving Satanism under our noses, implicitly mocking our obliviousness to it.
