I live in Tulsa and at the moment a lot of people are creeped out by this Craigslist post that implies a serial killer has started with their first victim here. Police are investigating whether or not it’s just a joke or real, but either way it’s super creepy. Link to news article:

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.

Pa. woman confesses to Craigslist murder, says she killed at least 22

A Pennsylvania woman charged along with her newlywed husband in the murder of a man they met through Craigslist admitted to the slaying in a jailhouse interview with a newspaper, and said she has killed more than 20 other people across the country. Police said they are investigating her claims.

In an interview with the Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa., 19-year-old Miranda Barbour said she wants to plead guilty to killing Troy LaFerrara in November. She also said in the interview that she has killed at least 22 other people from Alaska to North Carolina in the past six years as part of her involvement in a satanic cult.

“When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” Barbour told the newspaper for a story published Saturday night.
