Todd Matthews, the Director of Case Management for The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) will join me and host Jay Oliver, on LI News Radio.
Mr. Matthews will be discussing the importance for family members of missing persons to submit DNA, fingerprints, dental records, etc. He will also be discussing the latest identification of “Peaches” in the Long Island Serial Killer Case. In 1997, a jogger discovered the torso of a woman in a plastic bin inside of Hempstead Lake State Park. The only identifying mark was a tattoo of peaches. While searching for Shannan Gilbert in the Spring of 2011, investigators discovered additional human remains, including those of an infant.
In December 2016, investigators linked Peaches to remains found near Jones Beach in 2011. The infant found in 2011 near Gilgo is the child of Peaches. This development has been the most in the previous 6 years and had much to do with A&E’s The Killing Season. By highlighting the case and partnering with WebSeuths, a crowdsourcing site, the Long Island Serial Killer case received a much needed push.
