    Whew...it has been a busy week around here!!

    I'll try to see if any station other than news12 (subscrition) will carry the press conference with the escort regarding Burke.

    They just said on News12 that the escort also tied Burke to Hackett. Should be interesting. Coming up at 1 pm.

    Shannan Gilbert Family Attorney Links Former Suffolk Police Commissioner James Burke to Gilgo Beach Killings

    ...

    The woman, who asked only to be referred to as "Leanne," said that she was choked and forced into rough oral sex with Burke in a bathroom during a house party on Oak Beach where alcohol and cocaine were served. It was about a year after Gilbert had gone missing in the neighborhood, but before the remains of multiple escorts were found along a quiet strip of Ocean Parkway.

    I hope she told people about this before now. Otherwise, they're just going to say she made it up to get publicity.

    She did. She told other people before even callng in the tip.

    It is all over the news!! On every local network. Every lcal newspaper and blog. National networks, too.
    I feel like the can of worms has just exploded and the FBI is sitting back and taking notes.

    I hope this isnthe beginning of the end.

    ...

    On Thursday, "Leanne," told reporters she met Burke at a party in Oak Beach in June 2011. According to the woman, Burke paid her $400 for "rough sex" at the home, a few miles from where the murdered prostitutes were found. The woman claims Burke hired her again for sex two months later.

    According to an affidavit, the woman claims she observed Burke "roughly pull a young woman by her hair to the ground" at the party, which included cocaine. She said in sworn testimony that Burke was introduced to her as a "a high police official."

    In August 2011, the woman said she met Burke for sex a second time in a bathroom at an undisclosed location. "He insisted upon oral sex, which was given," the affidavit states.

    She described Burke as "aggressive" to reporters and said he called her a "*****" before throwing $300 or $400 in cash at her.

    "I was a little dehumanized," she said.

    A law enforcement source with knowledge of the Long Island serial killer investigation told FoxNews.com last month that Burke was being eyed as a person of interest in the murders, though the FBI declined to comment on the case. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said federal investigators were questioning Burke's former girlfriends after learning he had a "violent past."

    This is not the first time Burke -- once Suffolk County's top cop -- has been linked to prostitution.

    A 1995 internal affairs report by the Suffolk County Police Department shows Burke -- then a sergeant -- had a months-long relationship with a convicted prostitute and drug dealer named Lowrita Rickenbacker, according to Newsday, which obtained a copy of the report.

    I knew I was right to be suspicious of Burke....

    For almost 2 years I've been pointing at Burke. I am SO glad this brave woman has come forward. How you like them Apples, Burke?

    Justice is not far away I can feel it!

    Could Lowrita know who Peaches was? Is Lowrita's location known? Could Peaches Jane Doe BE Lowrita? Did Lowrita ever have a child?

    Article states Lowrita and Burke were together in 1995. Then 2 years later in 1997 we have a non Caucasian/mixed race mother and toddler daughter murdered. Just an idea.

    Wow so Hackett might actually be involved after all?! Nuts! Absolutely nuts. Were they saying he supplied the drugs as has been the rumor?

    Lowrita is on FB. With her real name. I believe she has attended some of Burke's court appearances, not sure. She does have children (at least one daughter that I know of).

    Police should see if Lowrita knows who Peaches could be. In fact who all of the victims could be. If she is a prostitute I wonder how much she knew about other working girls around her, especially ones that serviced Burke.

    I can't imagine police not interviewing her by now.

    Could she legally decline to speak with investigators? Maybe they haven't been able to. I doubt she would give anything up anyways. She seems like a "classy" lady (sarcasm on fire).
