The above pictures are the tattered sweatshirt, torn up paper and cherry tattoo belonging to a possible victim of the “long island serial killer”.

On March 3rd 2007 a suitcase containing the torso of a woman, with multiple stab wounds, washed up at Harbor Island Park.

The victim is estimated to be between the ages of 30-50, female, black or hispanic, of large build, with a tattoo of cherries above her right breast.

Torn pieces of paper were found in the lining of the suicase (which was exclusive to Walmart stores). When put together, the torn pieces were identified as a piece of a calender with the word “cinco” and the phrase “begin to live”.

Three weeks later, a severed leg washed up at Cold Spring Harbor. The next day, another leg washed up at a cove, near Nassau County’s Gold Coast. Both toes of each foot were painted with pink nail polish and eventually identified as belonging to the unidentified torso.
