Police Consider That Long Island Escort Killings Could be Work of Ex-Cop

Authorities reportedly are considering that a former cop or someone familiar with law enforcement procedure is behind the killings of four online escorts whose bodies were found on a remote New York beach.

Police say evidence suggests that whoever dumped the women — all in their 20s and found wrapped in burlap bags — is knowledgeable of police investigative tactics and familiar with the area of Long Island where the bodies were found, according to multiple press reports.

‘FARM AID’ FOR BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & JON BON JOVI?

Springsteen and Bon Jovi, two of the biggest names in New Jersey as well as rock and roll have often been called ‘average Joes’, and ‘working man’ types of rockers. But they travel the world in private planes, work when they want to work, and live in mansions surrounded by electronically-monitored gates that most of their fans can only drive past, hoping to catch a glimpse of their heroes.

Springsteen and Bon Jovi are also gaming the system in New Jersey by claiming special ‘farm exemptions’ in order to avoid paying the typical taxes on their property.

  • Thanks to a tax exemption for beekeepers Bon Jovi pays a paltry $104 dollars on 6.8 acres of land in Monmouth County.
  • Springsteen also found a favorable exemption to help him avoid the standard tax rates on the 200+ acres he uses as a buffer zone around his three-acre home. Because an organic farmer works part of the land, Bruce is charged less than $5000 each year.

Pit bull abandoned in NJ gains worldwide following

NEWARK, N.J. – When an emaciated pit bull found at the bottom of a trash chute in New Jersey was rushed to a veterinary emergency room last month, doctors there thought he would be dead within the hour.

Instead, the scrappy pup, nicknamed Patrick, has defied the odds and is getting stronger by the day.

“He is a tremendous fighter,” said Dr. Thomas Scavelli, the director and founder of the Garden State Veterinary Specialists, the pet hospital in Tinton Falls where Patrick is being treated. “There are very few animals, or any life form, that could have gone through and survived what he has, and really never looked back.”

Hospital staffers, who named the dog for his reddish fur and because he was found the day before St. Patrick’s Day, have been chronicling his progress on their website and a Facebook page that has garnered fans from around the world. He’s received hundreds of emails, donations, gifts and letters from those inspired by his tale of survival.
