On April 26, 2017, from 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM ET, John Ray, the Gilbert Family Attorney will join me and host Jay Oliver live from the WRCN 103.9FM Slomin’s Studio at MacArthur Airport.
Attorney John Ray has been an advocate for the victims’ of the Long Island Serial Killer in addition to his work with Shannan Gilbert’s family. He continues to seek justice for Shannan and the other victims.
Search for Shannan Gilbert
Shannan Gilbert disappeared from Oak Beach, Long Island on the night of May 2010. No one expected what they would find next. The search for Shannan uncovered the burial ground of a serial killer(s) along Ocean Parkway. The case quickly garnered media attention when then Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer uttered the words, “serial killer.”
Without Shannan Gilbert, there would be no Long Island Serial Killer investigation. However, law enforcement officials in Suffolk County have considered Shannan’s death to be accidental. The Suffolk County Medical Examiner has listed the manner of death as Undetermined. To dispute this claim, John Ray brought in famed medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden. Dr. Baden conducted a second autopsy and discovered that Shannan’s hyoid bone was missing. A broken hyoid bone is a strong indication of strangulation and a proper manner of death would be Homicide.
In December 2016, investigators from the Nassau County Police Department confirmed that human remains found in Hempstead Lake State Park in 1997 known only as “Peaches,” was linked to remains discovered along Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach. In addition to that discovery, “Peaches” has now been confirmed to be the mother of the toddler found along Ocean Parkway.
