    Jim Bissett was a wealthy man Shannon mentioned to a friend. His father owned a nursery where he would have had access to burlap bags. However, he committed suicide the day after Shannon's body was found.

    James Burke was allegedly running a prostitution ring. Police Chief Burke lost it and beat a man and now he's behind bars for obstruction of justice.

    Did he want the FBI to stay away because of his dirty dealings, or because he was involved with LISK?

    It's over. I feel like I understand what's going on much better now. At the end they said 17 people have been found. :thud:

    This is a very chilling case. I did catch the end of the show tonight but am waiting for midnight to roll around so I can watch it in full. Had to work second shift tonight so I missed much of the show. However I have followed this case very closely since Shannan's disappearance and I remember the day the cadaver dog and officer were out at the brush near the beach and started finding bodies. This case just swallowed me up at that time and I will keep following it until it is solved.

    Sounds like every kind of evil went on, on that island for years with lots of people covering for each other.
    Seems like each POI was connected...the doctor was doling out drugs and these men just did whatever they wanted.IMO.

    So true. Take your pick. They all fit the LISK profile in one way or another. The drug/sex parties. Supposedly, many LE were a part of it.

    Interesting! Since today is election day, I'll say this; if I had to "vote" for a main suspect, mine would be on Hackett.

    Also, i can't remember who its was at the moment, but one of the victims stayed at the Holiday Inn in Hauppauge.
    Not that it means anything. But all these little dots.

    Do you know who TruthSpider was? At the old place? He was determined Hackett was suspect and I read some of his posts. Seemed to me the poster really did their homework, but I didn't know enough about the case to render judgement.

    I remember reading about him and someone actually outed him on the LISK blog. I have to look again but from what I remember, he wasn't too secretive about his true identity.

    A few months ago on the LISK blog, a guy posted that he drove past a van one night on OP. That a guy had a scanner on the hood. Very late at night. I'll try to find that, too.

    When he had his little grab his chest moment I secretly hoped he wasn't faking. There are a few that get my vote as suspects hackett included

    It will come to me. I used to know and had tons of notes on this case and where they are since I moved earlier this year is unknown....because journalists are such organized people :rolleyes:
