The First Dog With COVID-19 Has Died, And There's A Lot We Still Don't Know
"April when buddies family I started to notice that something was a bright buddy started breathing really heavily, any hadn't mucus knows, and this was the first thing is family notice that you know the first sign that he was not himself. That's Natasha daily a wildlife reporter with National Geographic. Buddy was a German shepherd who Natasha says by his family's account was a very, very good boy. He loved running through sprinklers, Keitel's love like running and diving right into the lake. His family loved address them up for Halloween, is also photos of him in a bunny costume and you know he's just it looks like he's just grinning at the camera and so when buddies started getting sick this spring, just before his seventh birthday, his family, Robert Allison Mahoney and their daughter Juliana. While, they were worried I mean he'd be completely healthy, and then all of a sudden in the sprain he. started. Struggling to breathe and the first thing. I thought was he has the virus. Meaning the corona virus in the reason they thought that. They had also been sick. So specifically, Robert Mahoney, the husband had tested positive Alison Mahoney. Robert's wife had not been tested, but she was showing symptoms. So she had it to. The daughter Juliana who's thirteen tested negative. But when it came to getting buddy attest, that was a lot harder. But he's regular vet wasn't seeing patients. The Vet significantly said, there's no, he has like just you know there's no way and he prescribed the antibiotics over the phone. Another vets gave buddy ultrasound and x rays. But also didn't think he could have the krona virus remember no dog had yet tested positive in the US. And many vets didn't have the tests for animals anyway. But one day. Robert, Mahoney sister saw facebook post about a vet where they lived on. Staten. Island that had just gotten some test kits. Robert. was like great like let me call right now. Get down there, make an appointment, and so he was able to make an appointment for ten PM on a Friday. So it was a very strange time, but it was the clinic was really busy, and so it was the the first law they had available. That was Friday. May Fifteenth a full month after he started showing symptoms a few days later, but he finally got test that revealed. He was positive. This was a huge deal. Buddy was the first dog in the US known to have the virus and the USDA announced the news in a press release on June second. Buddy wasn't named in that press release. The government only identified his breed. In fact, we only know the details of his story because of Natasha's reporting. The USDA said in. June, that quote the dog is expected to make a full recovery. But Buddy didn't get better. He got more and more sick in June. It. All came to a head one weekend in July. And a warning that the details coming up are pretty tough to hear. So Allison. Came downstairs the morning of July eleventh and found buddy in the kitchen in a pool of modeled flood He was throwing up blood. It was coming from his nose. It was just horrific and devastating for the family, and at that point, they brought him into the vet and the decision was made to euthanize him which was obviously really really difficult on top of two and a half months of stress and confusion that the family had already been through thirteen dogs and eleven cats have tested positive in the US for cove nineteen according to public. Records and while those numbers sound small, they raise big questions about how virus can affect people and their pets. Today's episode. Natasha. Daily on why. Some of those questions are still so hard to answer. Allison Mooney said to me that you tell someone that your dog tested positive for Cova. Did they'd look at you like you had ten heads. You know there's no rubric for navigating covert in your pet. I'm Emily Quang and you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. First off the current CDC guidance that there is no evidence that pets can transmit the coronavirus to humans, and that's partially why testing for animals isn't more widespread. We do need to say to that test for animals are different than the test used to detect the virus in humans. All animal tests are processed in different labs are processed in veterinary labs. Not, there's no overlap between human testing and animal testing. So. While some of the mechanics of the tests may be the same. It's not at all taking resources away from humans. But because a covid positive animal isn't seen as a danger to humans, there's been very little scientific study of how the virus can affect those pets or even how it can interact with other diseases are pets may have. That's where we're going to pick up buddy story with an Tasha daily. Yes. So new blood work was taken on July tenth the day before a buddy died, and it was on July eleventh when the Mahoney's brought buddy in. To essentially be euthanized that they found the results of that blood work on and the blood work indicated that he very very likely had lymphoma, which is kind of cancer, right? Yes. Lymphoma is a type of cancer So I I asked a couple of veterinarians who were not involved in buddies case at all to review his full records and they said that, yes, every single one of the symptoms he had could be explained by lymphoma, you know A. A big open question is deity SARS Yovany to present clinically in buddies body, and what that means is did the virus cause any symptoms? For example, the trouble breathing was, and so I think it's it's tough and we'll never have an answer to this was every single. One of his symptoms are the lymph, Oma? Or was some of it, the COVID and the breakdown of fat isn't something that we have an answer to, and you also pose the question. Will. We won't know whether the cancer made them more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus exactly, and that's sort of a big takeaway from his case You know our dogs or cats with underlying conditions like cancer as it turns out. More likely to contract the virus because we know humans are humans It's thought that humans that have suppressed immune systems maybe more likely to contract the virus, but not only that maybe the virus may be more likely to present in ways that are more significant in their bodies if if they're already immuno-compromised. So the same question remains for animals and we just have so little data to investigate it.
Mauritius seeks compensation as oil spill cleanup continues
"Residence of Mauritius which is an island east of Madagascar in the Indian. Ocean are calling for international help to stop the economic and ecological damage from an oil spill that has already leaked thousand tons and could dump twenty, five, hundred more local authorities have done what they can to plug this leak but they're concerned that this tanker that ran aground could just split in half. This bill is already devastated local wildlife the local economy the local food supply the ship is Japanese Japan said they're going to help with the operation but locals are calling for a full-scale international response. Let's hope they get it. We just wanted to raise that because this sounds like a potential disaster. Yeah. In the kind of thing that. You know he's not front and center given all the other news in the world. But again, like this is another reason why you need like a functioning vehicle for collective action around the world, which is missing in the absence of the US playing that role. Because you know these kinds of things can have devastating a long lasting ecological impacts so. Good to raise it in in the kind of thing that I'd like to see the. US. Again, if there's a change administration would take the lead on on in the response to this kind of thing unfortunately, not going to happen under trump.

"Of pro cop group suing Mayor de Blasio after they weren't allowed to put up a blue lives matter. Mural similar to the Black Lives matter Mural on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower. The suit says their First Amendment rights were violated when the city allowed its property to be used by private speakers, but one allow a mural supportive of police. Joseph Emperor Treece is the founder of Blue Lives matter, and I see which is one of the plaintiffs, he explains to 10 10 wins. Why this matters. He was founded off of all different people coming through Ellis Island to start a new life and have equal opportunity. And it seems like politicians nowadays are siding with certain groups important certain people and groups on a pedestal, and that's what Now what New York City is about? Not. That's not what America is about. And to have a politician come out blatantly deny you saying that another group is more important and their values more important. It's hurtful and disheartening, but we're not losing. Plaintiffs say they want a mural to honor cops and boost morale in

Global warming threatens Atlantic puffin recovery in Maine
"Europeans first arrived in. North. America. And landed puffins were common on islands and the Gulf of Maine. But hunters killed many of the birds for food or for feathers to adorn ladies hats by the eighteen hundreds. The population in Maine had plummeted. Puffins were almost completely lost. That's Don Lions of the Audubon Seabird Institute. He says it about fifty years ago. Conservationist started bringing puffing chicks from Canada and hand raising them on the main islands. When those birds reached adulthood, they came back to the islands where they were raised and begin nesting themselves. Now, the puffins colony in Maine has recovered to more than a thousand nesting pairs, but global warming threatens to undo some of that progress. The Gulf of Maine has actually now one of the most rapidly warming water bodies on the planet. That's driving many fish to cooler waters. So the puffiness are forced to fly farther or dive deeper to catch enough food. The most intense warm years during the last decade have made it very difficult for Puffins, stories, chicks, because of the additional work involved in finding food for them. So reducing global warming can help means beloved toughens survive.

Turning into rage overseas now to Beirut where anger is boiling over nearly a week after that devastating and deadly explosion, the ammonium nitrate customs officials say was negligently stored here despite their repeated complaints may have been the spark for wider movement protesters took to the streets throughout the weekend, and now at least three key government officials have resigned. Their demand is clear revolution. This weekend thousands of protesters called for a new government in Lebanon and clashed with security forces sent in to disperse the demonstrators briefly occupied government buildings until they were pushed out. Yeah often discovering that governments officials repeatedly ignored warnings about the chemicals that caused that massive explosion. The people of Lebanon have taken to the streets and believe it or not. This explosion is just the tip of the iceberg because for years. Now, the people of Lebanon have been complaining about rampant corruption in all levels of governments and how big a countries are using them as political porn and you know things are bad when the people are saying look, it's not just about the explosion that blew up off the city but Lebanon is yet another example of this larger pattern that's happening around the world, a pattern of countries having to deal with multiple major crises at one time.

Briogeo: Nancy Twine
"The easiest part about building a business is the day you imagine it in your head because everything that happens after it is really hard the research, the business plan the pitch to investors finding the factory, the distributor, the shops to sell your product. Each one of these steps is an obstacle and for the most part, each step creates a new problem. Too many problems can become overwhelming and soon enough it can also become tempting to just ditch the whole idea entirely. So to avoid that trap. Nancy twine took each problem one at a time, which is good because her idea was pretty complicated. To build a line of natural shampoos and conditioners without most of the synthetic ingredients you'd find in other hair care products. She also wanted to design a line of products for all hair types and textures, and she one of those products on the shelves of Sephora one of the premier beauty retailers in the world all of these problems Nancy would eventually solve her brand. is now carried by Sephora and is expected to do almost forty million dollars in sales this year. But to get there especially with zero experience in the beauty industry was gonNA pose a series of major challenges starting with finding a chemist who actually believe you couldn't make this stuff without parabens or sulfates or phthalates, or any of the other common chemicals you need to make shelf stable shampoo. Biggest early challenge though was having the courage to start the business at all. It was two thousand and ten and Nancy was in her twenty s on the fast track is a trader for Goldman. Sachs. In New York. And one day without any warning. A tragedy completely upended her life and prompted Nancy to reevaluate the way she was living at which we'll get to. Nancy grew up on Long Island New York her parents split up when she was a kid Nancy's mother was a physician and the twines were one of the few black families in their neighborhood. My mom was a family doctor and I don't even know if that term is quite used anymore. And I do remember at a young age being at her doctor's office and it was always full. You know a lot of people ask me where I got this very confident entrepreneurial experience from but I think that there was so much value and power of me seeing my mom running a successful practice really running a business. My Mom was an entrepreneur in seeing that at a young age seeing her confidence seeing her joy and the fact that being a female being a black female was not a hindrance. To any of the dreams and goals that I would ultimately have in life in red like as a kid used to go to West Virginia Lot. But what's the connection to to West? Virginia he asked. So my mom is from West Virginia. She's one of eight children and my grandmother is from there and that's where she raised her tribe and a very small rural town called Rand R. A. N. D.. What did you know about her upbringing? I mean it's like I. Think to this day. It's one of the whitest states in the country and obviously one of the poorest states in the country did she ever talk about what her childhood was like there? Yeah it was. It was definitely a tough childhood. They didn't grow up with a lot and the fact that my mom grew up in that type of environment not only not having an a lot but not being able to see what success and beyond that lifestyle could look like because. so much of wanting to become better. Or becoming successful comes from seeing other people who look like you that have done it. And when you don't even see the possibility but knowing within you that it exists in having that faith and belief in yourself. It's so so powerful and that was very much my mom's

Tips For Childhood Obesity Success
"Hello and welcome back everybody I had a lovely week in Cornwall I. Actually Went Down Because my sister tied the knot with her brand new partner I. It was really really small ceremony I was really impressed. It was very strict guidelines and who can enter. The registry. The department and what is called the registry anyway. So it was very strict on if four people were allowed in. So I had a the honor of being the witness for my sister, and then we had a really small garden party I. Think it was like ten adults and a few kids my children, of course in amongst that group. So we had a lovely time and return to London where it's really hot and of course, during my holiday in Cornwall I. was invited by Channel Five. To comment on in childhood malnutrition, and of course, I was always aware that the new childhood obesity strategy was out but it had to turn it down because my family were really wanted me to have the laptop off. So I didn't get the chance to. Go on TV or whatever share. So I thought I would record an episode on some tips on how to work with your child. If you are worried that they are overweight or obese these because I know this is a really emotive topic I mean I can even see that amongst dietitians and other than nutrition professionals or doctors we're all divided we all have. Dif- way different boards and we have different ways that would like to approach it and deal with it but I guess the stats don't lie. The numbers speak for themselves. As so. If. It's something that worries you and you also have family history of diabetes or heart conditions or any other health problems and you would like to work with your child. To bring their way down in more home in the healthy range or wait that feels good for your child. Then I'm going to share a few tips with you in this podcast episode and I hope that it will be helpful for you. Now as always if you lie to work with me, you can book a coil. It's a free initial telephone call where I can take you through my nutrition packages and coaching programs so that you can decide if it's a might fit for you. Now I just want to put out. I'm not judgmental Dietitian at all. I was an overweight teenager I. Remember you know my parents always valued education. So my dad is a veterinary surgeon, for example. So he really valued education although my parents you know my mom now has a gym membership. and. They did. There are very conscious about healthy eating but they weren't really sporty family I remember playing badminton and Netball at high school but apart from that as a kid I. used to play in the garden and things like that my parents enjoyed walking. So we did lot to wargame. But apart from that, we didn't really want really an active family. We'd be interested in sport it was more about. I did a lot of reading rowing up and painting and things like that. But apart from that, there wasn't a lot of focus on sports which would have really liked because they're held the choices at herb very nutritious growing up. was never a doubt about that but I could have done with more exercise as a teenager. Big is clearly there is a genetic predisposition. To being a little overweight and so when I was sixteen I to Cobb running because I was really unhappy with the. My Body Fluctuate I. Didn't like the way I looked I don't think I've was away but I can't remember actually I am pretty sure I was overweight at one stage and so I started running I started reading a lot about nutrition and that's how I became really interested in this area. But of course, you know being a teenager of course. I felt for some of the nutrition nonsense like I did a two day eat only fruit detox type plans and I remember on was passing out in a aerobic exercise class type thing in an inner sensible enough not to return to something like that. But I can appreciate that today you are young children particularly young adolescents. They have access to a wide range of information. I didn't have social media I just googled or read magazines for. Weight loss and nutrition advice. But today there is just so much information out there and is really really hard. If you are a young adult or you have young children, it's really hard to sort of tease out fact from fiction. And it's a really really emotive topic and I completely understand what is like to be overweight and yes, you can have held. In you know you can be healthy adult or healthy child. For example in New Zealand, we have the Maori, population and population from. The Fiji Islands or someone population you know they're naturally. They have larger bodies, but they also have a higher. Muscle mass, and so we allowed a higher cutoff for their BMI which meant that you know we weren't too worried that they were particularly larger. However, some of these groups could also be at higher risk of being obese or overweight, but with health. Conditions associated with that. So kidney problems diabetes is a big one isn't it and problems of the heart and things like that
"long island" Discussed on Drowning Verdict
"That the killer is. About twenty two or more years older than the cops think that, yes. an-and though wikipedia page for the profiled the identity of the killer or read it here in a second. It talks about. The the age and so forth Marie that to you, and then I'm GonNa, tell you what I think, but in the identity of the killer on the wikipedia pages says that the media has speculated about a profile of the killer referred to police as Joe seed. According to The New York Times, it is most likely a white male in his mid twenties to mid forties. WHO's very familiar with the south shore Long Island and has access to burlap sacks, which he uses to hold the bodies for disposal, he may have detailed knowledge of law enforcement techniques, and perhaps ties to law enforcement, which have thus far helped him avoid detection. Okay, so that's what Wikipedia says and here's what I said in my opinion, because I'm using the burlap as away. Of intention that the killer is saying something that it it's a loose theory of mind, but is there any anyways that he knows Green River killer? So that's one connection. The other connection is that burlap is like old school fishing, which means in my mind that he's not in his twenties to forties. He's like twenty years or more older than forty, so he's much older than this profile or how the cops my profile I do believe that he is a white male. I believe that he's. A big person may be over six foot tall, and the work that he does keeps him in very good shape very strong. and. Last part of this identity where it says that he may have ties to law enforcement, which has helped him avoid detection I know. One of the persons of interest on this wikipedia page has a connection to law enforcement. I. Don't believe that I don't believe it's like the Golden State. Cara killer where he had Originally at worked as a copper at Thais law enforcement in that Golden State case that that's what helped him. Case places and know how to commit A. Burglary everything to do their. My Gut here and again, my opinion. Is that there are no ties law enforcement. So what I'm saying is is up. BURLAP is a reference to like all. Fishing kind of how things were done back in the day, but I, take it as a reference to his age as well I. said I think he's much older. Now in the Green River case. The The guy's name is Gary Ridgway he was. Somebody who was basically a blue collar worker when he was captured by police and Can you know brought in? And they had got their God this was in two thousand one. He was working out at a paint factory. Okay, so get it drove. A truck worked at a paint factory. That's who he was. He was a blue collar. Guy blue-collar worker, not by choice, but just to. He was where he wasn't life and. Education and background. That's a chef who was. Now in Lisk. If. The person is still alive which there's a strong possibility, yes. I believe a couple things about Lisk. First of all very smart, highly intelligent. And it seems to me. Worked in. Different fields that not considered blue-collar. But I think that. The person is working in a Blue Clark job. Ask Choice by choice. It's something that. They choose to do rather than by default they have to do. They don't just have to go out and get a job. Knowledge can find his physical labor. They're doing it because they do it by choice. I also believe that they may be. Very cynical about. The work and the people. Around them. That, they think everybody is a Moron Kinda. Have that attitude? And I do believe that. They are the percen again. One person is a big person physically strong in that work. That blue collar workout Labor has kept that person to be. Physically fit as they are very strong. The sex workers the victims. Their target, there are target lot of these people that commit these crimes have done years ago and And, in today just hasn't changed, they're. They're kind of lost. People and I know Netflix has a show called loss girls. It's true. They know that a lot of people may not care about them. There might not be searching for them. Very Sad. So. Their total targets and they might even be targeted on their proportions about how how big their if they're. Under a certain height, and so forth because that's key to get in the advantage on. On the victim. because. After a certain period time like over fifty. You're not as strong and you have to be careful so I. think that the list killers very smart highly intelligent had worked in fields, different from blue collar as working blue collar, if alive and working in blue collar industry. By choice. By choice, so that's where I come up with my profile of Sane. No I. Don't believe that this is somebody who has just. In their mid twenties to mid forties, familiar with south shore, Long Island and has access to burlap. Sacks..

"I'm straight got a neighbor so it's not like you can even go outside and get the paper. Well it's like. Hey did you notice herald put in salt water pool in the backyard. Where do you think he's getting the money from two days after I gave him two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in every time I asked him about how our coins are on the market? He's like band not good bro. Sorry subjective subjective tastes. We lose money. We're GONNA need another cash. Infusion why you gotTa rose racing you in your line it'd be mad funny until investing coins but like not special ones just like yeah. I got two thousand dollars in quarters in my house on S- feelable it's too heavy. Big mcduffie Fulham I. It's beautiful so I like his argument here. He's like you should have known. I think you did because otherwise you are roomed up so so in response to one of more marines. Experts testified that at least one of the main auction websites was not publicly available until after two thousand eight well after Marini had already discovered discovered the fraud. So basically what they're saying is like we didn't even have the option to look at this shit into scam. This guy. This fraud didn't exist faced when you started scamming him. You invented this this Friday. We now have to have rules set in place. Thanks to you right now. We have a lot in your name ad hoc going like Mitch Mitch. You made this scam up. So how are we supposed to know about this. Rococo be careful buddy so the couple eventually sued Adamo and forced him into bankruptcy winning a twenty million dollar judgment. Okay you want a twenty million dollar judgment a hair. Don't got twenty Mil bad news brother. It's going to be coins. No no no this one's worth we're of nineteen million. Trust me. It is pretty much the whole thing. You'll be set. So Herald was fifty three when he was arrested in September. Two thousand nine hundred and charged with grand larceny and scheme to defy both felonies as well as is misdemeanor counts of issuing bad. Checks did write a lot of bad checks and then stop texting people back. His bail was set for one hundred thousand dollars bond or cash. He was expected in court on Friday if convicted he would face up to seven happen years in prison. Good that feels too long. I don't think so at this point. Well you've ruined another dudes entire future. I probably probably if the Guy Investment. He's not going to get money back. Oh there is something that I have to tell you about the scam. That actually makes cocoa seem even stupider so some of this money that he was getting from his kids college funds no rococo. Who would have thought the guy who takes? That's this is upsetting now now. I'm now because I've been like if you my dad and I know you fucking the neighbor. Good have fun with that. You tapis kitchen fuck on great but I'm trying to go to school you telling me when I pull up to university you're gonNA coins for me like a father without the fight. Fistfight your dad outside a pit for more if I could do mrs the financial aid and they need to take out a loan. Heo Now get the fuck up. Rococo Coco the coin. Your father gave us the send you to college. We turns out is only worth eleven hundred dollars college in coin. That's fucked off state of barter ship. Father Rico's wife better not have been like neighbor cock line. You gotta step up and be like Hey I think it was Dick Dick and no. Oh boy was. She lied. Bay like we probably shouldn't liquidate the Kiss College. Trust you more coins and we're going to be set off in the right direction. None of these coins are hidden. I was fucking. I mean I was talking to Harold last. None of the quizzes hidden herald is putting a hot tub in both his bathrooms in his house. uh-huh where do you think he's getting that money from China about the jets are good kids going to Nassau Community College so happy no offense to NC squared right. I love that I love that shortage. So Herald scammed seven customers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars from April twenty seventeen to march twenty nine and the crazy thing is all all of them. Were named Rococo. There's that many Rococo is out on the island and then they go you mark. What are we supposed to ask my mom? If she's ever met someone named Coco possibly. The Rococo has to be now. I want to know this is recent to that this is this is awesome. So the Marines have had no luck so far in collecting and obviously. That's a shocker. That is a plot twist they haven't gotten any money. I'm also going to guess that he stopped returning. Now here's obviously all this stuff earlier like the judgment came down to two thousand fourteen. He was scamming customers out of hundreds of thousand dollars able twenty seventeen not the march. Twenty one thousand nine so he went back to crime. He's gotta he's gotTa pay his bail. You know they say crime doesn't pay this guy but he's proven them wrong. So the Marines please. You recently took drastic steps targeting. Hofstra University Fairfield University and Brooklyn Law School to try to claw some of their money back arguing doing that. The total of two hundred and forty six thousand dollars that heralds kids paid intuition to the schools came from their father scheme so he put his kids through college and to put your kid in Hofstra Living Long Island. That's a private university. That is like and they put them in a dorm. That's money waste and Shit right because it's twenty minutes away from anywhere wearing Nassau County so truly what I'm trying to understand is y'all took the money out of your Kid's College Fund so your kids had to watch the neighbors kids go to nice colleges on on your dime that's fucked up and pretty baller so they claim all this tuition was from ill gotten gains. Okay give it back thank you. That's not how universities work Brooklyn laws like. Look we're lawyers and the cash in the bank. Dude it's not coming back out. I don't know what you think. This is Bro. We giving you a dime security. I wish I could ask my college for a refund. We all do. I need to pay tuition and I'm like no I'm kidding. I love the University Pittsburgh as it. So measure me. I'm just calling you immediately when you graduate talking about donate to the alumni association. I'm like beach now. You Know Shit I've been alumni for fifteen knows how cocoons are set up from fucking which Al is you right. I know it's like what did you like to donate to the school. I'm like I did when I fucking went for four years so the Brooklyn Federal Court. Judge sided with Herald ruling that his children had no legal obligation to return the funds to their father or to give it to the marines. Does uh the I love. The Marines are now just trying to go after anyone to get their money back there at target like listen we know that Herro came up in here and he uh-huh waterbed and three flat screen. TV's money and here. I am. Here are the street value of three flat screen. TV's if you just give me twenty one hundred dollars. I will walk out of here right. And this is a target Argonne fine. I'll just say to fleece blankets and call it. Even give me your credit card. Rococo Coco. That's a fake name. How I swear he goes to jail? So the kids could have chosen to take a trip or gone on a shopping spree with heralds money and it wouldn't have been recovered then either you can't. How many words? So after the ruling Herald the former neighbor and godfather to marines children. Oh remember he took. He eliminated college from his own gone. Children's future gloated that the bankruptcy trustee overseeing their case lost that motherfucker. Take your fucking rude like you already built to these people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars you robbed your own Godchildren. They got photos of you and they were like kissing on chill. Say Yeah. It's it's fucked up because in the Herald Ghana's backyard and fuck his wife loudly on a pilot of of expensive coins in front of Rock and make Rococo Watch dining painful not comfortable we can fuck literally anywhere does does it have to be on change. So.

"Yeah I wanna you know and we kind of brought out a little bit over hockey and acting and and that was my first job so what I ended up doing those like I can't move back home my parents after Undergrad like after getting away and living on my own and my where you living on your own in the city so in the city so we got a after you see the suit job carried you into getting a Manhattan apartment. Never took the job. Oh you took it right into to the bartending job right right this bartending job believe it or not got me into the city because I was commuting by car to your mom's house but no what I decided to do because I'm independent and now I've lived alone is I'm not living at home. I got a job that pays me money me and my friends got a six person person loft in the financial district. That was a city block. Mom and one window was on Water Street and one windows on Pearl Street Watt Watt listeners a gutted three story walkup Loft G. This thing was huge like could like if somebody was at the other end of the lofty the you could not even know you were they were home and we were all poor college kids but very like you know. I don't know just like feeling no like we could do anything and we're like we live here. We're to build walls and we're going to build rooms that we're GonNa fucking live in Manhattan. You know doing the math on the ranch. It's only it's only gonNa be six hundred dollars. Each a month. We get six or seven people in here. That's going to work and we literally brought sheet rock. 'n fucking two by fours up a three story walkup in Manhattan and built rooms rooms and six of US lived in this in this apartment and I reverse communication with my car from New York City to Long Island to work his job aw city living in a loft bartending at a fancy Italian restaurant online economically sound and so I'm paying aim for a spot at South Street seaport to then drive to Long Island now the only good thing is because it was a restaurant I was off peak rush hour right so you're driving there at three in the afternoon to noon four in the afternoon and then come back home after twelve from long island to the city because that's what most people everybody commutes. That's just like a total lake. I think that's just like the metaphor my life. Everyone commutes from Long Island to the city but I know the city too long to think outside the walks here and make my life harder. That's pretty much everything. What were you getting the benefits of the city where you're getting go out in the city on your nights off daytime getting and be a DH it was it was six of us? We all went to college together. Some people were from the area people weren't everybody was kind of hustling jobs just to be able to live in the city. You know obviously there were six of us so right. It was early affordable. I live three people in a two thousand square foot loft with my bedroom was above the dining room and we had pods like you had to co op ladder but you couldn't stand up in my room and the dining room so we split we split split the Lockton half the long way the worst way. That's another thing like I feel like that's such a New York. City is like they encourage you to split rooms and put up walls and you like this. This is the studio office you could split it so it's like okay could fit a twin bed. Yeah sure that makes sense. Let's do that like city kids look. I know no way you're saying. I want their like landlords. I WanNa get twenty four hundred dollars for this apartment. I know you two guys can't afford it but I'm okay. If you throw a third guy there and everyone only has paid money I want and if you're going to build a room when you guys leave up when three people in effort three thousand and they add to it and they're like you know what I gotTa Wall Guy to. If you needed to worry he'll come in. Put it in take it out. When you leave many scale? It's unreal but yeah so that was my first thing but what I made so much money at this restaurant. It was like God man. I was so stupid with it so the only downside of this gig was it was they wanted to have a really family feel so you had to work every day because they didn't want people to come in and not know you so I had to work six days a week this restaurant Ron but that's also coin. I was getting if you're getting six shifts a week and I was making so much money getting upset so what I would do is I would fly to Miami Miami on my day off on Sunday just because I had to work six days a week like it was stupid stupid. I'll put it let me let me live in New York. City the and actually enjoy myself you put away a bunch of savings and now you're not a dollar a working dollar. I was so stupid with that. I was making so much money like I had been making six figures as a twenty two year old talking like six days a week light tax laws there with the cash hash tips. I know it's one of those things like why did I do that for ten years and Baya fuck in apartments. I'm going you know I have to be an actor. GonNa live in fuck in the financial district of five my buds. It's the only way I'll be happy. You know it's so funny actually because so I ended up quitting wedding because it's not about the money man I wanna be an actor dude. This is not going to work for me you know and my boss who is the owner who really liked me but owned multiple on this whole. All these restaurants was like what are you doing.

The bartenders make the cocktail menus and then go and live another two months somewhere else so they were opening in places like Miami Puerto Rico Vegas Chicago. No I WANNA be an actor. This guy looked at me like I was fucking Outta my mind and I probably was but again hindsight you're like I could just knowing how the business works. I could've waited one year and that would have been the best experience on my shirt and I would be no different my career would be I no no it's true I did the exact same show so I know all about it's so true and I I had that fear that if I did it if I did anything like that and it and it was successful that I'd never come back you know get comfortable with the money in the lifestyle and I never really do it and whether that's true or not who knows but that was like my fear so I was like Nope Nope nope but it was weird because this dude respected the hell because he probably thought I was crazy dedicated to the fucking stupid idiot you know because everybody you know like those those owners that have all the money all they have all days guys that want something from them right so like when they have a guy that doesn't want anything from them like they don't know hot girl that everybody's chasing them. My turn advise them shit and you're like no. I'm good and they're like yeah you neg them.

I like everyone else in this world. It's fucking as we all want more weight. So where. Where did you grow up that you played in Freeport are you? I mean so so I grew up in east meadow east met. Did you go to division or did you go. I went to I went to San Jose Grammar School. Then I went to woodland junior high school and then I asked my parents is sick. I am to go to Catholic school because the hockey because of the hockey team what what to Calemburg Calemburg. Oh okay cool so as crazy as that is at least to the Co ed one. Oh Yeah Yeah I don't think I could I could have did so Shamanov was like the sister school that was all boys and it was a it was where drew the line. 'cause I went to Catholic College. I went to marriage with Thai so everyone there was Catholic and or most people were Catholic or at least not Jewish so every long island personnel was there was from Calemburg Holy Trinity and Chamonix the three yeah yeah wasn't seen Anthony's like a hockey school to or yeah I think they because I think like they had a team. They weren't as like you're right yeah. They were kind of in the mix is to they weren't kids who were like in public school.

It was like a weird thing like hockey in general the sport like because it originated in Canada like all like kind of the even like age wjr groups and restrictions and all that stuff is so different but yeah so that was like the first step was like Catholic school and then I also play travel hockey right and then at that point I was planning on like so many many teams that I that I mean Freeport you just were playing all over long island basically right yeah and of course like I went home not too long ago and Eisenhower Park built a two two to rink facility in the middle that is where the islanders now practice and it's like five minutes from my house and my mom's like you gotta be kidding me. I had to drive you. all those years ringcraft yes so I grew up there and then east meadow was so small. It's a funny you said is now look back to when I first started on the Bellmore Merrick central the high school district Swim Teams Swim Swim team like hockey not that popular needs a big piece of equipment to play it you not allow schools are equipped with pools so oh it was mapam. Calhoun Kennedy and Grand Avenue Junior High End Merrick avenue junior high all rolled into one sports you the eleven guys nine guys we practice at the freaked center for like my freshman through sophomore junior year and then Eisenhower Park where because they were having the goodwill games they're open that huge like lost leaders pool facility yeah I remember our practices switch.

I'm an wealth games are goodwill games one of those two if you sound one hundred dollars on the street. Would you pick it up up or would you keep walking of course you take the money. Hey I'm walking here with one hundred dollars. I just picked up Swan. You keep picking winners and not betting on them. That's why I go to mybookie. It's fast. It's easy and they pay when you win. Let's face it when you're just betting is just as important as who you're betting on. I do the smart thing if you're going to bet this football season season which is fun that with my bookie. Did you know you could bet on Games after kickoff in the second half. It looks like your bed is GonNa lose. You can always just take the other side. I you know hedge it a little. If the Kinda guy that likes to bet a little and win a lot you're the type of person that likes to bed a little and win a lot..

"Grade issues diagnosed house to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder she stayed at this elementary school until fifth grade and she was transferred to a school for troubled kids by the time she reached her teens mural had become too frightened of meghan to regain control over megan would make threats to her grandmother like i'll kill you in your sleep sleep. I'll stab you did so this was just beyond dysfunctional. Megan was a really unhappy child. She was angry and resentful from feeling like she wasn't getting what she deserved in life when she was in junior high uriel moved the family from downtown portland to scarborough which she's pretty much a nice area nice suburb lotta wealthy people there but they had a trailer on the western side of town in the trailer park. The single wide mobile home fourteen by seventy feet with three bedrooms and meghan felt resentful. Why do these other kids at school have more than her. She decided bright away that most of the people in scarborough were snobs and because meghan cape from trailer park she was identified as white trash. She started in regular classrooms but she suit was transferred to special ed it. When she started scarborough high school the following year she was putting the alternative part of the school for treble treble kits on many many occasions meghan was caught shoplifting from walmart and she ended up the youth center which is a jail for young offenders unders. She was released but sued caught carrying drug paraphernalia saw she was eventually forced to juvenile rehab seventeen. Gene megan stopped going to school as she did continue to live at home with muriel. She started working these low paying jobs. She got picked up by police a few times time for shoplifting and possession of alcohol then when she was seventeen megan found out she was pregnant. Father was a thirty two year old d._j. Who you may have met at a club in portland. It has sex in the bathroom. It's sad it really is a judge. In youth court ordered megan stay at saint andrews a home for unwed mothers from the length of pregnancy it just as a side note. I worked there for quite a while. Taking care of pregnant teens needs what are rewarding job. I really enjoyed it. I mean most of these young women were really trying hard to get better lives in a lot of them came from a lot of shit so was a great place but anyway meghan header baby girl in the summer of two thousand six and named her liliana when she went home to muriel's trailer. She seemed different. She seemed determined to straighten up her life for her baby but meghan began to feel some new pressure in a lot of disappointment the money she got from the state wasn't enough to feed and clothe her and the baby and she didn't want a future of living off government checks like her mom and grandmother had done meghan wanted wanted to give her daughter a better future but she made the wrong decision on how to reach that goal because she ended up buying ads on craigslist and working as an escort. You know what i bet a lot of that is because she didn't have guidance if your parents grandparents have never gone to college or really been able to do a lot in the outside outside world. How are they going to advise you to do that. So it's really a disadvantage just as much as poverty is that's for sure yeah. I think it's not just the money since the ease of making the money well yes the ease of the money but in the long run it's it's not easy any you're pretty life at risk when you're seventeen or whatever amount of money as an easy way to do it well well. I don't like the word easy it's acquai- there aren't as many steps to take is going to college filling out job applications going interviews. Who but i'm saying is assist nobody who taught her how to do that anyway so she was really on her own anyone to say right and these girls seem like they were smart smart girls for the most part who could have accomplished a lot of things so it's just really the whole disadvantage that comes with poverty. It's a lot more than just not having the money. It's it's not having a lot of things that can help you succeed in adulthood so i think megan's case is really a sad one four while sure logan's boyfriend usually accompanied her to meet clients but she was convinced to meet a client alone on the night that she disappeared just as the other young women had now. Can i just ask a question about these boyfriends who drive them there. What the fuck is with that driving just the driving but why would you take your girlfriend have sex with men and then use that money not feel bad about it. That's a good question yeah. This five asking her probably messed messed up the same way. Okay i mean two of these girls. Headway twins actually the other one into he called did have a boyfriend of some india boyfriends. She drives them to their dates. Excuse me i know well not only that they do it but me as a woman men if my boyfriend had said yeah. I'll drive you out there. So you could be an escort or you could give blowjobs or whatever the details of it were. I'd be well fuck you buddy buddy. Why would i want to go out with someone that wants to do that. That doesn't think enough of me. It's almost like sure very close to that yeah. I guess they don't take his highest percentages pinpoint but still it's disturbing so the last victim we wanna concentrate on today is maureen. Maureen brainard entered barnes who was twenty five years old and she was from norwich connecticut. She was last seen in july of two thousand seven marine marine <unk> story. She dropped out of school when she was sixteen and pregnant. She never went back by the time she disappeared that she had two children. Each of the different father when she was unable to afford our own apartment marina would stay at his sister's place for a while now or in moved into an apartment in orange connecticut was paid for her by her son's father. Maureen told her friends might be independent and onerous yeah well. She was never a girly girl. I guess but she developed early and was noticed by the boys in school. At a young age she had been with her boyfriend away from jason brainard barnes for just six months when she got pregnant with her first child he esther to marry him and she said yes and they had a small ceremony at the courthouse us in nineteen ninety nine and that was after mauri gave birth to their daughter a jason's grandparents place and then they moved down south outs for two years when jason join the army but after they returned to connecticut hit the marriage fell apart marine ended up moving in with her sister missy and mris children who lived in a low income housing development missy was the more practical sister but maureen was the one that everybody just adored. She was a dreamer in a romantic. So some parts of reality were hard for her to accept the best job she had as a card dealer at foxwoods casino ended ended in a little less than a year when she started calling in sick too much for a while she delivered pizzas and she worked registered a local drugstore but but then she started leaving her daughter with missy and going out on the town worried was an excellent writer thou and she filled multiple notebooks with poetry rap lyrics and and there's a book that i'm going to tell everyone about at the end of this episode where they actually have some of her writing in it which was really very good. I was impressed with her writing in two thousand and three marine was twenty one and she had a four year old daughter no job and no place of her own to live her music and songwriting wasn't giving her the attention that she'd hoped for she'd been using my space to market her music and to network with some other rappers and that's when she came across some ads for modeling. She got a friend to take some photos for it. She were a few different dresses in alesi nightgown in the photos but i mean they were far from pornographic or he got dozens of emails for places claiming to be legitimate modeling agencies but after a few clicks flex they would turn out to be hiring nude models only or they would be escort services in disguise aka prostitution rings so well clicking taking on some of these links maureen did notice how much money she could make a sex worker or an escort but she didn't wanna share the money with an agency so on craigslist maureen saw women who posted ads independently and she won't jay. That's a good idea so she began to advertise her services online and the money she earned was more than she could earn at any of the jobs that she was qualified to do over the next few years she would leave the sex trade for months at a time so she was trying to get away permit but she was always drawn back in by the money so when she went to meet that client that lasts day she'd been served in a fiction notice and she was really desperate sprit to make some money and he had convinced her to come out meet him and he was going to pay fifteen hundred dollars shoes last seen in july two thousand seven saint as she planned to spend the day in new york city after her disappearance a friend of hers named sarah cars received a call from a man from from an unknown number man claimed that he had just seen maureen issues alive staying at a whorehouse in queens he refused to identify himself and he can until sarah the location of the house told her he would call her back and give her the address but never called again. Let this just turned out to be someone who was a sicko so i guess because she wasn't whorehouse in queens we know that might have been the killer yeah. No one has suggested that that was to kill her but that's possible yeah the phone well. We don't know it was an unknown number so it wasn't marines thumb. Where did he get the number. I don't know maybe it was listed and with the other girl he actually used the missing girls phone yeah for her. Would he know burner phone. How would he know oh. I don't know that's a good point. He must've had some kind of knowledge of renew. Them could be someone who just need them. In june june of two thousand eleven the suffolk county police raised the reward for information leading to an arrest in these murders from five thousand dollars to twenty five thousand dollars dollars which was the largest reward ever offered.

"She disappeared in september of two thousand ten and had been missing for nearly three months before her body was found. She lived moved within ten miles from achilles. Dumping grant amber was a survivor of child sexual abuse some survivors of childhood sexual abuse avoid sex ex- completely but others reopen their wounds over and over like the thing that can desensitize themselves for amer sex became way way to get some power control in her life by the time she was a teen sex meant nothing to her emotionally. When she was sixteen she started charging some some of the neighborhood boys for sex amber got a reputation when a rumor went around the che's spreading gonorrhea into the boys <hes> uh she reached adulthood became addicted to drugs continued to work in sixth <unk> whenever disappeared she was living with a male friend named day schaller collar. She worked as an escort prostitute getting her clients through backpage dot com dave last saw her when she left their home to meet a client she she'd gotten this call from a stranger they negotiated over sex and agreed at a much higher than usual price of fifteen hundred dollars so this offer it was just irresistible to amber she was addicted to heroin and she was supporting herself through prostitution so she threw caution to the wind that night and she headed out alone and sadly she would never return for safety reasons she'd been using dave cell phone to set up dates and that evening dave would remember. The man called her three or four times but she seemed to feel comfortable with him now his last call to hurricane at ten thirty p._m. And she left the house wearing a pink hoodie at a pair of jeans. Dave amber took risks but as a close friend he learned to accept it. S amber described yourself to southern del pictures should have to teach young women green eyes brown hair. I am who go buy new every few days in order to keep yourself at the top of the adult services session as she got now call to hotel or house. David usually drive her in wait outside in his car. More often clients who come to their house in that case could wait in the next throw them while there have been times when men did threaten violence in david had to intervene amber was so tiny. She was four feet eleven in weighed about one hundred pounds but she was tough. She wasn't afraid of too much on the morning of september. Third amber hadn't gotten back home. Dave called her her sister but the sister told him not to worry because that's just amber. She takes off all the time so he waited. You know it's just so sad because of for lifestyle. No one in her family reported her missing or even looked for they pretty much given up on her which is so sad. She was only twenty seven years old. Yeah somehow the killer convinced amber to be alone. She was experienced and she should know better but at the same time he offered a lot of money and consumed put her at ease. Don't forget she had a drug habit. I now but i would think that that persistence in that offer of so much money would be a red red flag to her probably should've been it's like too good to be true type of thing yeah yeah and at the same time thinking well. What can i buy drug roadways with this anonymity right. I mean fifteen hundred dollars is a lot of money that could get you through a couple of weeks. It could pay rent to get her drugs so so money went out over reason and i'm sure the killer new this right i mean of course he knew that these women are desperate for money in peru princi- and if he's an educated soft spoken man he could probably put them at ease and offer them so much money money they can't resist and then murdered them. Another one of these victims was from portland maine. Her name was megan waterman. She disappeared in june of two thousand ten and she was last seen leaving a holiday inn. Express now a really interesting thing about that is that is that this was the same hotel where a client had asked amber costello to meet him. Just a few weeks before amber was killed but amber had refused to do that that time so so it turns out. It's probably the same man megan was the youngest of these women that was murdered. She was just twenty two years old and she left behind a four a year old daughter. She'd been raised by her grandmother. Muriel new real had raised her own six children on around in downtown portland maine in early early on muriel had decided that her daughter lorraine was the bad one so lorraine became black sheep of the family but the designation wasn't completely honored because lorraine did get a lot of trouble she'd been on her own for a month when she met megan's father greg g-o-v and these two really didn't have anything in common common but laredo never had a boyfriend before so she was really into him and within a month they moved in together. They rented a room in a dodgy section of portland shortland. Then they ended up staying in a days inn and westbrook renting a room by the week lorraine had begun to drink a lot after getting together with gregg and then the relationship became very volatile and he became physically abusive then became pregnant she left with gregg but returned to him when they had their first baby and that was a boy who they named greg junior. They broke up again when she was eight months pregnant with their second can daughter and that was meghan and that pregnancy advanced. She quit her job at burger king and she got on welfare. When meghan was born she had an elevated billy remained level and that's something that needs to be monitored learning was supposed to bring the baby back for a follow up tasks but she kept avoiding the social workers didn't follow the thrill so mural became alarmed at the state could find the rain finally she learned megan was in the hospital with respiratory distress stress and that's when <unk> plant custody of nagin. Saint laurent was <unk> mother. She's an incident newborn and elevated khalil. Ruben levels are pretty common. Use it to no degree of concern while because it's easily treated to recognize go to do right and that's why she needed to bring the baby back for recheck exactly so when babies are going they have more red blood cells in the need once i started breathing with lungs so the red cells have broken down. One of the byproducts of the breakdown is billy. She's a yellow pigment. Now that's supposed to be metabolized by the liver but a newborn sliver isn't always up quite up to the task so you get really ruben staying in the blessed and that's what gives the the orangey yellow skin color to the days by itself is not a concern but if some of the duly ruben the billy room that's not bad any proteins and can cross into the brand cause brain damage so that's the concern yes so in the old days baby baby stick it break damage called curvatures so as long as you recognize it and the treatment is simply put into maybe i'd nadu looks fluorescent arrested lights. Metabolize billy room kind of worst case scenario is very high. You can do a transfusion and exchange moore blood cells which is pretty rare. It is yeah i mean i. I did a few back in the day but had than any. Your head wanted to do any new duties for about thirty years at the time. I retired so well that's because it's routinely checked something something. The sorts of protocol sport sharon should not ever happen provided his foul ups this concern back when they well then she ended up with respiratory distress and you don't know much more about how that happened. Do you want to add anything about newborns in respiratory distress. I know that could be many different causes too generic term so respiratory distress could be infection his cousin her lungs to have problems heart disease that makes you breathe fast could be other diseases that is so many things so respiratory distress us generic term for what happens with the baby while ya but with a newborn there really is blood work that needs to be done in a case like that virtues in the hospital so presumably shoes being tested for those possibilities way at by the time she was in the hospital but i just wonder how far that baby got before before she ended up in the hospital because it seems like lorraine was pretty careless not really on top of things so this there's another case. I guess i'm just saying that. I give the grandmother credit. I think she did the right thing yeah so we know that the state has foster care ready for these emergency situations situations so when little meghan left the hospital she along with her brother greg were taken from lorraine and placed in foster care but muriel would drive arrive every sunday morning to visit the babies. They were about an hour away. Lorraine was supposed to go with them but muriel said they could never find her. Silvio began to bond with her grandchildren and was kind of like a mother a grandmother she befriended the foster family and ask for more time with the two babies she. She wanted them all the time three months into foster care family. Let muriel keep the babies for the entire week. Rain will come round from time to time. She wasn't reliable. Bureau grew presenter has did the children as i got older. <unk> will really love the children rain sister. Mr has acknowledged that government support play a part in bureau's decision to take her youngest son is turning eighteen. She'd be losing state aid so so as she is in the care of her grandkids should get assistance n._s. One of the first thing she did when kids came to our house to live with two by for assistance sure well no. I mean if she loves them and she needs the state to take care of them. Were power to her. Her government misspent money on a lot stupider things than taking care of children so i'm all for that so muriel raised meghan inner brothers. If they were her own children's their father greg did visit the children per a few years but then he left town and disappeared on them lorraine did see them too but only when neural but allow it and this this was appointed contention you know there was some not great relationship things going on between mural and lorraine so many of megan's closest friends as she got older david know that she had a mother and those that knew knew that meghan hated her but megan had quite the childhood. She was not what an easy child she wasn't. She was pretty hostile out of control first time the police recall voter was when she's in first grade how about that ah leasing bridge connecting some buildings thirty feet above the sigua and she climbed over the railing when pack.

"The women had done strangulation. Each of these victims had really difficult. Livestock died young so at like to go over a couple of their situations. Melissa barthelemy was twenty four years old. She'd been missing for year and a half winter. Body was found melissa came from a small town near buffalo new york four she attended beauty school and she moved to new york city to work as a hairstylist but melissa began working as an escort new york after her mother other lynn had not heard from her for several days in mid july of two thousand nine. She began calling everyone. She could think of searching for melissa. Lynn also so called the n._y._p._d. To file a missing persons report for three days the police refused to file the report because melissa was an adult and she had no history of mental l. Nece lynn even asked her attorney to get involved but the police refused to assign a detective to her case for quite a long time about a week later yeah melissa fifteen year old sister. Amanda got a call for melissa cell phone so she was excited. When she picked up the phone thinking melissa's finally calling thank god but it was really terrifying because it was a man on the other end of the phone so that was quite shocking remember. This is a fifteen year old girl who sisters missing so this man was described as emotionless softspoken any said horrible things to amanda about what he did to her sister in what he wanted to do <music> her making threats to her police would grow to believe that this caller was the killer. Amanda received eight costs from him. Her mom lynn spoke to him on one of these calls any claim to be from the n._y._p._d. Asking her if she had filed a missing persons report but for the most part these calls were aimed at terrorizing amanda and verizon eventually able to trace his calls to the manhattan area but he always hung up before could get further identification n._y._p._d. Believes this man was the long island serial killer. His voice led investigators to believe that he was a white male. In his twenties to thirties criminal profile is believed the he will continue to kill women until he was stopped pointing tusa usa colleges in profiler skype on based on the principles of behavioral profiling loan island serial killers most likely a white male. He's probably married or has girlfriend. He's well educated technologically adept and well-spoken. You could even be quite charming harming. He's financially secure has reliable job in a car truck and some people have considered that the killer could be employed in law enforcement because the phone calls were made from crowded places lasted less than three minutes. That's not just knowledge known to police officers who force mental now not nowadays. Everybody watches crime shows and knows a lot about it and they're also some sense. He was familiar with how the investigations institutions unfolded yeah. It did seem that way but that doesn't mean that he has to be law enforcement. It's a possibility but if he'd been killing for all these years ears. He probably had some knowledge about what he was doing because he'd been getting away with it for a long time. They believe he doesn't currently live on or near ocean parkway away on the south shore of long island and they think he's very familiar with the area though and may have once lived there. He's a very careful and meticulous person i and knows how to cover his tracks. He could have lived in manhattan because that's for the calls to amanda came from any may have been a long island summer visitor so so maybe he was a summer person to of the defining characteristics of this type of psychopathic serial killer are compulsive or or a cyclical violent behavior and the ability to blend back into their so called normal lives between the killings and this guy seemed to have a definite ammo. Oh and his victims had a lot in common mostly sex workers in their twenties in shannon gilbert's case her skeletal remains were found in a marsh so investigators believed that she drowned there or succumb to the elements just a short time after she met joe brewer but brewer was cleared as a suspect suspect in the case as well after a state autopsy in december of two thousand fourteen the cause of shannon's death was determined to be inconclusive so she was never included on the official list of the serial killer victims but then there was a new autopsy performed by former new york medical inspector michael baton. He was hired by mary. Mary actually raised some money to hire him and he said there was evidence that she was possibly strangled making her possibly the eleventh victim but his findings are based on two missing horns and shannon's highway bo so onto discuss that with you a little bit let's move the hieng is alone in the neck right yeah kind of like a horseshoe shape when we often hear about in people that strangles the higher bone has been fractured by the strangulation so it hasn't body and has two pairs of horns any torn is called a corno which is the latin word for horn the greater and lesser horns us to the body of a higher on between forty and sixty usage usage. Non fusion has been found even after the age of sixty because shannon was in her twenties. We have to wonder if the missing horns really in kid strangled. Pro-moscow remains coverage right. So what do you think about that. I mean remember we're. He was hired by shannon's mother. Who is very sure that shannon was murdered so there's a little bit of pressure there for him to go in that direction his findings as the body of the higher was broken now. He's basing all his findings on horns that are asking yes. I mean it is defense. I think you said possibly strangled. He didn't say that she was strangled. Attorneys to the salmon played it up as the topsy was mishandled an she really was strangled exactly so. I don't know if that's that solid of evidence to me. It's pretty weak but at the same time do i really think that a woman in her twenties out there drown in a swamp in the marsh. I believe i believe that more. If i was more positive that she was acting under the influence of some direction and find maybe a little more believable yeah yeah. It's tough for otherwise healthy woman to do that right. And why would you take your clothes off so you've got the excuse of maybe her jeans got alouette okay but why would she take your shirt off and when she put her shoes back on surface didn't get caught up so it really is still a mystery what happened to shannan wouldn't when i would not think so. I think we really don't know what happened to her. Now hurry break time. It's your responses okay..

"Let's just easier kinda dumb shannon on the social system while i hate to use the word dump there were certainly some issues with marion her mother medications of bipolar disorder have a fair amount of side effects probably at least heff pupils to take the medication at one time or another stuff ticking because services yeah. I know it's tough when you have a kid with something like that but but i think when they're twelve you related to be pretty prudent about making sure they take their medicine or yes. He entered his birt's. Mom's parenting in schools yeah and i don't want to demonize the mother because she had a lot to deal but let's say the home life was far from ideal the description so mary said shannon was out of control but other people had a different story shannon told friends that are mom cared more about her boyfriend's than she did about her on children and according to sherry her sister shannon and mary's boyfriend didn't get along and shannon was sent away because of him. She said that mary was oblivious to the abuse that her boyfriend perpetrated on them and she only learned about it when the girls spoke up years later but within that point. Mary did support her daughters when they accused him so you have to give her credit for that he went to jail ended up dying few years later in france shannon was a smart friendly energetic very talented young lady that marry with shannon's biggest pro- wpro growing up she graduated from high school moved away from ellen ville shannon lift with her grandmother for awhile and actually begin taking nursing in classes she worked at a hotel a restaurant chain and a secretary at a local school and then she dropped out of college in quit the secretarial equitorial job because it's too boring and then she left to grandma's house because they had arguments about staying out too late so this is kind of similar spiral tomorrow and i think that her grandmother really tried but it's hard to raise a kid is a grandmother. You know you're getting older. You don't wanna deal with all that. This girl hadn't had any structure before that right reading articles about that have more and more grandparents arisen. Her kids scrammed jude's yeah sugar. It ain't easy now. I i wouldn't wanna do it. I mean of course i would do it if it was necessary but that would be cia. There's a huge generation gap there too when you're talking about a grandparents raising a child about that but i certainly give the grandparents that do a lot of credit so shannon then moved to jersey city which was just across the river from manhattan that was in two thousand seven. She really wanted interview stage performer in new york and she planned to audition for singing and acting jobs and she also began taking college classes in psychology and in writing she was determined to follow her dreams and make a better life for herself and when she didn't get as many editions as she hoped for that's when things kind kind of fell apart for her she fell into the lure of making a lot of money and the only way she could earn that was working as an escort or a sex worker so she kind of saw that is her only option which is really sad but by working as an escort and making about five hundred dollars a night she did have more freedom to pursue auditions and she had enough money to support herself and help out her sisters so there was a good side to it at least the way she saw but i don't think she realized how dangerous it really was. You know not only physically dangerous getting her but i think it's psychologically dangerous to put yourself in that position. I think it would be really hard so at first shannon worked for an escort service. She met her. Oh boy friend alex dias through her job as an escort. He was one of the drivers they were really happy together and they were both earning pretty good money so they moved in together and things seemed it's pretty good but the escort business was busted by the police and then alex and shannon were both out of a job and after they lost their high paying jobs the relationship went right downhill they started fighting in alex became physically abusive. According to the arrest record alex hit shannon bannon so hard that he shattered her job she had to have surgery and a titanium plate was put it to her job so she had a long recovery period. Yes you did but nevertheless she stayed with alex struggling to pay their bills and then shannon decided to advertise yourself love on craigslist this way she believed she could eliminate the middleman. She can make her own hours and keep all the money sheared the driver. Yes sometimes alex was the driver but when he wasn't she hired a man named michael pack he would take shannon to meet with a client in he'd weighed in the car for her this way the client knew that she was brought there by someone so she was less likely to get beaten or ripped off. Alex dias the boyfriend his shannon good night on may first two thousand ten. This was a normal friday night working for her. Her driver that at night was michael pack. She got a call to go to a client at oak beach and this was a place you'd never been to before. She left at midnight to meet the client joe uh-huh brewer and after she ran off that night her family and friends never saw her again alex than the entire next day waiting for her to come home home. She never returned by sunday. He was worried enough to try calling her but her phone was shot so he didn't know what to do next. You knew drivers named michael pack but he didn't have a phone number for him. So finally he went through shannon's drawers and found a piece of paper with some phone numbers he i it's called michael who seems surprised to hear from him and alex was angry that the driver had abandoned her on long island. I think he was right about that. That was not a cool cool thing to do but michael told alex what had happened but nothing michael was saying about her behavior. That night sounded like shannon to alex. It thought it was all a little shady but michael was helpfully tried to help alex signed her so i think he did. At least he'll a little guilty about leaving her once he found out she he had made it home. Which of course any normal person would think yeah yeah yeah alison michael peck sounds six nearby hospitals online and four police stations the call them all you think shannon's name and a description over but no one has seen her so alex michelson connect him with the person who hired shannon spoke of job. You're over. The phone. Rural laughed at a basically saying huffman. It's your job. You should know she's at it got defensive when he was asked questions and historian sam believable alex michael since you've within a brewers house or three hours so why would a center off after that all the time gone by well. That's a curious part about it because that's a long time to be in his house and can you think of something was going to go wrong would have gone wrong sooner now. She didn't show any signs of being beaten according to michael but she was terrified she was hiding behind couch <unk> all your could you take something drugs or sudden. I suppose we don't know because she was never found so we i have no idea i mean going on what exactly so he could have given her some kind of drug she could have been on drugs dugs but according to alex now she used drugs. It's not like she never used drugs so she didn't normally act that strange when she took them could she. She had been having a bad trip well maybe but she was making a lot of sense really she wasn't saying random things so it's very curious what qader off to go running out that night he really is we know from what we know. She was okay on the trip out right. Yes exactly park. It didn't say anything was amiss now. He's sitting in the car waiting for me any problems into three hours into things and yeah exactly so together. Alex joe brewer went and filed a report the suffolk county police officers didn't seem to take them. I'm seriously though she was an escort a prostitute so they were giving her the kind of attention that they would give other people. There's always that biased biased that we've been through this before. Yes marginalize people when alex said he was from jersey city. They told him well anyway. You need to go file the report there there so the next day he did drive back out to oak beach with a photo of shannon and he made it to the gate where truck pulled up and stopped and a middle aged man dan hannah chunky but friendly got outta the truck alex notice she had a limb anna prosthetic leg anti introduced himself as dr peter hackett. The doctor listened to alex and wrote down. Some of what alex was saying in a little notebook he told alex he knew nothing about what had happened to shannan but he said we're going to help you out with this case i used to work with the police so we're going to call them and we're going to have this whole place searched and he was true to his word it because later that day helicopters were searching above oh beach but they found nothing on that search so that evening alex filed a missing persons percents report for shannon in jersey city. He also let her family know it was going on and he told the police that shannon was bipolar and she had been known to use cocaine marijuana in also some prescription drugs and harry yogurt. Mom had trouble remember all the details. She did say the doctor had called her in the days following shannon's disappearance. This was before she understood. The shannon was really missing and the content the phone call as she called. It was very strange. He said his name is dr. Peter hackett lived in oak beach long island and then he ran home for wayward girls and according to mary. He told her that he treated shannon. She left his house. That's odd it's very area and she said that she remembered him saying to her that he had seen shannon that night and that she was incoherent and he took her into his home to rehab her and then the next day he said a driver came and picked her up and then he asked mary if she had seen her since in eventually of course mary would be questioned about this. Call it hack it denied calling mary at first but she had insisted sherry was there for the call right next to her mom and she confirmed served marietta hurt and then hackett would later admit to the call but he never admitted to seeing or to treating shannon in any way fulmer provided exactly and there were neighbors. That said that he would treat them. He gave someone a steroid injection then he given people prescriptions so he did treat neighbors yay while he was a former your duck so he could do that. I don't know running a a rehab center while he claims to never said that and you know we don't have a recording of the cost so it could have been a misunderstanding on mary's mary's part but there are some things about hackett that are suspicious but over time there were others including his neighbors at a beach who believed that he did did know more about what had happened to shannon and then he would admit helped along by pressure from shannon's family. The search led authorities to find ten sets of human remains off ocean partway ten. That's just hard to imagine moving from.

Denmark and stuff like that. They would bring them over to to study, and they would finish their degree there. So you had a bunch of attractive like tall Swedish people around the school.

I know it's crazy like when when people are forced to open there is a little bit crazy things happen. And that's what's so frustrating.

Tell you what else is fucked up like in my extended family. There's a there's one very wealthy family and one very very middle class, maybe even lower middle class family, and they vote they both vote for Trump.

I will say for long islanders to lefty long islanders here. Trump is very similar to the Long Island. Like, he's. Yes, he's objectively kind of funny. Yeah. He like, I hate to goes a long way to admit it. But he's like he's funny in the Long Island way where he's like a bit of a bully a bit of dick. I mean, he's from queens.

"I remember another way the way he saw it was I guess now. Well, he's he's out. And he's he's gay. But like we all liked him. Everybody liked him. So what would he have been worried about? Yeah. And it's like, well, that's not how it works for me. But he can't get he can't get outside of his own head. And so for me as a kid, I was surrounded by people like that who were at that point. Actually, it felt vicious to hear people say fag all the time vicious people to be like hell bent on on guys being the most quote, unquote, masculine as possible and that to me stems directly from that. Weird macho Italian culture that was so. Insidious? It was it was everywhere. And it crosses, you You know. It's know, it's like. like comes from that. But everyone wants at least these the young men I grew up around wanted that macho attitude was like that's where the weights that's where lifting weights comes into play. I feel like going because it's gotta be stronger than the other people. You gotta just don't are you going to be more masculine for me. It was like I think I was I was less scared of being I was honestly less scared of being seen as gay and more scared of being seen as like a Sissy or fag or whatever because it was a death knell for straight guys like that to sort of let my secret that I was gay would have been, you know, I think put a target. I mean back to the to the point that I mean, this is so fucking nuts. But like, and I've tried to block it out. But like at our senior, prom, I think it was a bunch of us who went together in the same limo. Whatever the same seniors. Now we use enjoy. Tony owns a limo tints are bubbling when they show. That's like the ten I was in senior year bubbly tint. So I was like. Charlie gnarly, tinted windows were so huge in my high school window. If my mom lets me tint, I'm gonna go to shade. You can't worse. Yeah. And it was people like these aren't even street legal. That's how awesome these tints. Well, why do you mean darted in systems tense weird? Like, you know, what I think the tenting is like it just gives them such a feeling of bad ass nece. It's your car wearing sunglasses inside inside. You look you'll going to ask my God senior prom to know is gonna say two of two of the people in our group work. It was a gay couple. And I've honestly like blocked this out because it was so silly. But we have to be escorted out of the prom. Because the because they were like threatening the couple threatening. They were getting threats on the dance floor at the fucking Hilton Windham in fucking hicksville or songs already the gas thing. You can do you rent alphabets you like dress up you get your photos taken. It's like to me like for a young street. Boy, I was like this game like doing this very gay and Cillian who why do we need this days to get escorted out because they were threatening a couple and your guy and your your closeted very much. So that's. Even like that's a fucking whole nother to where you're like. Now, I'm not gonna say shit. Imagine. Like, can you imagine that just just heist like high school boys on Long Island having enough hatred in their bodies in their souls and their minds enough hatred for gay people that they threaten them on the dance floor. They go out of their way to make their their senior, prom or any any day. Forget us from they go out of their way to make them feel. So make them feel not just bad about themselves. But unsafe on a fucking dance in hicksville. It's it's it's so upsetting for so many reasons because it's like, you don't even know why you don't don't even know why you're picking on them. You don't even know this. It's this Long Island has an I'm sure a lot of towns conservative base towns and like not super liberal city centers. But it's that other ISM like it's a sounding different into Palestinian picks. And I'm not trying to take away from anyone's experience there. But it's just that Long Island attitude of like, we chose to hate you..

"Amazon has selected northern Virginia and Long Island City New York to be the locations for the company split second headquarters, but even before the decision Amazon's interest in Long Island city had sparked a condo buying frenzy in the area located in the queens borough of New York, if it seems reminiscent of the pre crash property, boom. Well, that's probably accurate. Joining us with more on the story is Wall Street Journal real estate reporter, Josh barb anelle. Josh you right that until recently the Long Island city property market was pretty sleepy. When exactly did client start flooding brokers with inquiries. It was about a week ago. When the first word came out that Amazon was close to a decision that might involve Long Island city, and it began almost immediately like that night and the next morning brokers were getting calls from mostly. Esters at I who will looking to make offers on apartments later people who are looking to live there themselves. Also got the idea and started showing up in significant numbers. Yeah. How busy has this been for brokers? Demand. Must have or inquiries must have grown exponentially. It was incredibly busy. There were several stories predicting massive changes in both Long Island city and Virginia if this happened, and I kind of waited to see when we would get some documentation of this actually proof that it was really happening. And I came rather quickly by Thursday evening. I heard from a broker that all the appointments to look at apartments there through the weekend were failed. And there was no way they could get in except to go to open houses, you describe one example, this this building, I guess is going up. It's the glass building that's going up Jackson avenue in Long Island city called the gallery. Yes. And their sales manager gave me. A week by week reporting on the weekly visitors and in the week before this Amazon rumor emerged they had thirty three visitors or so for the entire week in the week after actually on the weekend after they have hundred visitors nearly a hundred visitors who they saw in their sales office in groups and individually, and they turned away sixty three people who left their names, and they were going to call them have them come back after that. And there is another broker that you talk about this broker at modern spaces and this person oversee sales at at court. I believe in is it's an eight story condominium that went on the market in August. And even before the decision went down prices were expected to go up. And I think she sold twenty units via text while the head of the firm says his personal context, including people he hadn't seen in seven or eight years texted him and said, we're interested in I don't know whether one owner at w-. Wants to buy ten of them or there were twenty individual purchasers, but he claimed to have an essence taken their offers, and they were gonna make deals and we'll see what happens at the court. What actually happened is after they thought it seeing traffic the developers began the process of increasing prices somewhat. We don't have much so that that was a direct result of the Amazon intrigue before the announcement. And there are hundreds of new condominiums on the market in Long Island city and dozens of resale apartments, and I am magin that business had been saw for these units. And for these condos for for quite a while because the the market has been so sleepy until now right Long Island city when they began with development there about decades ago began as a condo neighbourhood and after two thousand eight it's which to being doing rental buildings only and only in the last year or two. Have developers began investing again in condominiums and the market was like other places in the city was soft and that reversed completely hundred eighty percent when the rumors started circulating as mentioned before Josh one real estate agent told you reminded him of New York's condo, boom, just before the market crashed in two thousand eight. Yeah. The idea was it wasn't that? It'd be for the crush. It was a period when there was a frenzy and some buildings had people lining up at the sales office before the open the first day with checks in hand for deposits. It's not quite like that yet. But they felt it went from being a buyer's market had been to a very intensive seller's market all at once. And even before people even sure that Amazon was gonna make the move..
