“The serial killer who dumped his victim’s bodies in the thick brush along several miles of New York’s breathtaking beachfront may have dismembered several of them, law enforcement authorities have told ABC News.”
The chance of you ever coming face to face with a serial killer is extremely slim, unless of course you are a prostitute, then the odds change. Either way there is an extremely slim chance you’d ever get struck by lightning too. But I’ll bet you wouldn’t go climbing a metal flag pole in a lightning storm.
On Long Island, New York officials have found the remains of 9-10 bodies most believed to be women and so far one child.
Much speculation has come about regarding the killer’s profile. Some say his IQ may be as high as 120, he is probably white, mid 30’s, and integrated into the community. He could be a neighbor, boss and some say a cop or military.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics “In 2008, over 7.3 million people were on probation, in jail or prison, or on parole at year-end — 3.2% of all U.S. adult residents or 1 in every 31 adults.” 2,304,115 were incarcerated in U.S. prisons and jails.
There is an old saying born of motorcycle gangs called “one percenters”. The theory is 1% of all people come out of their momma just bad. According to these stats, it may actually be 3.2 percent.
Unfortunately, while most people are civilized, few aren’t. The uncivilized don’t have the same boundaries as us and sometimes kill for their own pleasure.
Lock up, install a home security system, take a self defense course, and keep your head up.
