Could Carpenter Arrested For Double Murder 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.

Frail Sinclair, 72, spends his time in bed or a prison wheelchair and struggles to eat a restricted diet, the Daily Record reports.

Heartland Unsolved: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

NEW MADRID COUNTY, MO (KFVS) –

We all feel safe in our homes, in our communities.

However, in 1998, a brutal crime ripped apart that sense of security. On a mild March evening, a man talked his way into the home of Tony and Sherri Scherer outside Portageville. In less than 30 minutes, he killed Sherri and their 12-year-old daughter Megan.

But, that’s not all he did.    

We tracked their killer’s crimes across three states as investigators hunt for a serial killer.

Portageville, Missouri

“There was no going back,” Tony Scherer said. “No bringing anybody back. No turning the clock back.”

We sat down with Scherer and his son, Steven, to talk about the day that changed their lives.

Like his dad, Steven Scherer is a farmer who wants his privacy.

“At first I told Dad, I don’t want to be a part of it really,” Steven said of

Do unsolved murders point to a serial killer?

 

Only time will tell if it was a case of serendipity or simply a weird coincidence.

On the same day that I was scheduled to attend a lecture presented by Florida Tech’s Lifelong Scholar Society examining our morbid obsession with serial killers, something strange happened. A source I was interviewing for the next season of my podcast series “Murder on the Space Coast,” handed me a folder.

In it were detailed notes he hoped I would follow up on regarding unsolved murders in Brevard County and his belief that they may have been the work of a former Florida Highway Patrolman convicted of murder in 1990.

Timothy Harris is serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of Lorraine Hendricks, whom he had pulled

British serial killer Peter Sutcliffe linked to unsolved Sweden murders

West Yorkshire Police connected Swedish authorities last year in relation to two unsolved murders of Swedish women, reports newspaper Kvällsposten.

“They wanted answers to a number of questions, including whether we have the type of murder, whether forensic evidence exists and whether there is anything that can be investigated using new techniques,” Bo Lundqvist, police commissioner with the Region South Police department for cold cases, told the newspaper.

“They also wanted to know whether Peter Sutcliffe was named in any investigations,” Lundqvist added.

The two crimes that British police wish to investigate are the murders of a 31-year-old woman, who was found in Gothenburg in August 1980, and a 26-year-old woman who was found in Malmö in September of the same year.

Lundqvist confirmed to Kvällsposten that Malmö Police did in fact contact British police in January 1981, after the media in Sweden had drawn attention to the fact that
