BREAKING: DA at center of Long Island Serial Killer investigation charged in dirty cop cover up

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota has been indicted for obstruction of justice after a federal probe into an alleged cover-up of police brutality committed by former Suffolk County police chief James Burke, a longtime friend of the District Attorney.

Newsday reports that Spota, who announced earlier this year he would not be seeking re-election, and a top aide have been charged with witness tampering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.

Burke, who was the chief of police during critical early years of the Long Island Serial Killer investigation, is currently serving a prison sentence after pleading guilty to beating and threatening a suspect. The victim, Christopher Loeb, stole a duffel bag from Burke’s vehicle that is believed to have carried pornography and sex toys.

World’s Top Psychic Detective Has Frightening Experience Searching For The Long Island Serial Killer

Troy Griffin has been labelled as the world’s top intuitive consultant psychic detective because he specializes in psychic investigations of unsolved murders and missing person(s) cold cases.

Recently, while out in Long Island, New York, USA, Troy was helping in the unsolved case of the “Long Island Serial Killer” around the Jones Beach State park area in the region. To date, and to the best of the police’s knowledge, this killer(s) has claimed seventeen victims, all who were involved in the sex industry offering their services through Craigslist. So far, the seventeen bodies have all been found in several locations within a ten-mile stretch of the beach, but Troy personally believes that there are more bodies that have not been found yet, possibly further down the beach, and that is what brought him to the area originally to help in the search.

While searching along the beach area, Troy found an

Prosecutor renews interest in Long Island serial killer case

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — For years, the thicket along a beach highway on Long Island held a horrible secret. Hidden from passing drivers were the skeletal remains of 10 people, mostly young women who had worked as prostitutes. Who killed them, and why, is a mystery that has vexed a slew of seasoned homicide detectives.

The case took an intriguing turn when a veteran county prosecutor became the first authority to publicly name a suspect in at least one of the deaths: John Bittrolff, a Long Island carpenter who was sentenced to consecutive 25 years-to-life terms in prison this week for beating two prostitutes to death in 1993 and 1994.

Robert Biancavilla, an assistant district attorney in Suffolk County, said after the sentencing that some of the remains found near Gilgo Beach “may be attributed to the handiwork of Mr. Bittrolff.”

Prosecutor Suggests a NY Carpenter Could Be a Suspect in the Long Island Serial Killer Case

A carpenter named John Bittrolff, who was recently sentenced to prison for murdering two prostitutes, may be responsible for one or more of the unsolved deaths connected to the bodies discovered on Gilgo Beach in Long Island, New York, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

“There are remains of the victims at Gilgo that may be attributed to the handiwork of Mr. Bittrolff, and that investigation is continuing,” Robert Biancavilla, a prosecutor with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office in New York, told the Associated Press.

The Gilgo Beach case, dubbed the “Long Island Serial Killer,” traces back to the discovery of multiple bodies starting in December 2010. Authorities eventually unearthed 10 sets of remains on Gilgo and have said they believe at least four of the deaths — all of women — are linked, raising the specter of one or more serial killers

Carpenter Arrested For Double Murder May Be Connected To Unsolved Long Island Serial Killer Case

In a Tuesday announcement, the Suffolk County District Attorney said that a convicted killer may be the same man at the center of the Long Island Serial Killer investigation.

According to PIX11, Thomas Spota pointed to 51-year-old John Bittrolff, a Manorville carpenter, who was arrested in 2014 and convicted for two cold case murders of sex workers in the early 1990s. Now, Spota is saying Bittrolff might have murdered additional victims found on Gilgo Beach in 2010 and 2011.

It’s a change of tune from 2014, when Spota said that there was “no evidentiary or investigative link between this case and Gilgo.”

Thirty-one-year-old Rita Tangredi was found beaten and strangled in November 1993. Twenty-year-old Colleen McNamee was also discovered beaten and killed in January 1994. Both women were positioned in a specific way.

Spota said in 2014, that he suspected another sex worker found
