    It Is beautiful. One of the most beautiful places on LI. I think it's the angle. Lits a shame that OB is plagued with this horrible nightmare. It is really a unique neighborhood on a lovely stretch of beach. I would have loved to live there.

    To so many people, Shannan Gilbert is only remembered for how she died: Alone, exposed, vulnerable and apparently fleeing danger on the outskirts of Gilgo Beach on Long Island, New York.

    It was the police search in her disappearance that led to the discovery of at least 10 other bodies in the Gilgo Beach area, launching the hunt for a serial killer and forever tying her fate to theirs.

    But Gilbert was more than that: And her life — full of promise, but with challenges and heartache — is reexamined in the series premiere Monday night of PEOPLE’s new true crime series, People Magazine Investigates, on Investigation Discovery.

    • Watch our new 10-part true crime show, People Magazine Investigates, which debuts with the two-hour season premiere “The Long Island Serial Killer” on Monday, Nov. 7, at 9 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery

    Gilbert is not just a part of the Long Island Serial Killer case. She was a gifted high school student who graduated early. She wanted to be a singer. She moved closer to New York City and auditioned whenever she could. She had dreams.

    Did Michael Pack know more? From how this is going, I think the john, Joe Brewer, gave her some mind altering drug and Pack was annoyed because Shannon was hysterical, due to some drug.

    Dr. Peter Hackett called Shannon's mom claiming to have a home for wayward girls and he was worried about her.

    What the hay? o_O

    Shannon's family goes to Oak Beach to talk to Dr. Hackett and he denies calling!

    He lives less than a half mile from Joe Brewer.

    Seven months later, a handler with a cadaver dog searches the beach. A body is found.

    Turns out, it's not Shannon.


    The dog finds the bodies of four bodies wrapped in burlap bags. This is when the LISK case begins.

    Winter sets in and they have to wait until spring.

    In April, they find four more remains.

    More remains. The Asian man...and a toddler!

    And one of the sisters of another murdered girl was harassed by someone saying he killed her sister...way before her sister was found. He called using the murdered girl's phone. I think they said her name was Melissa?

    Now they've verified Hackett did call Shannon's mom, but sounds like he was just meddling. BUT, they find women's clothing in a marsh abutting Hackett's property.

    My gosh, no wonder this case seemed so confusing to me all these years!

    Is this the same girl that is being interviewed on this show? I'll have to look closer at her name if they show her again.

    ETA: Sherre is the one on the show.

    Shannon's body is found at the right of Dr. Hackett's house. Police say she died due to the elements.

    Dr. Baden does an autopsy and feels she could have been strangled.

    Shannon's mom believed Dr. Hackett is responsible for Shannon's death. It's sad to see Mari throughout this show. They say she was murdered two months after their interview. Mari's attorney is continuing on with the civil case to seek answers.

    Part two is on now. We're learning the stories of the "burlap victims". :vigil:

    LISK offered these women a lot of money - and told them to leave their cell phones behind. He was very manipulatve. All the women were killed in the summertime.

    Jessica Taylor and an UID were founded on Gilgo beach AND at another location 45 minutes away in Manorville.

    The toddler's mom was also found.

    My gosh, one victim's death goes all the way back to 1996!

    Now they are talking about the Eastbound Strangler in Atlantic City, where four escort murders happened before the Gilgo murders.

    LISK does his preying via the phone. Maureen's friend is another one who he called and harassed. Melissa's sister got 6 calls from him. He told her he killed Melissa. And more.

    Ugh.

    Dr. Hackett harassed Mari.

    I wonder if Dr. Hackett has any ties to Manorville?
