Accused Gilgo Beach Serial Killer’s Wife May Have Been In Town During One Of The Murders, Attorney Claims

 An attorney representing the families of two of the Gilgo Beach murder victims claims that the suspect’s wife may have been in town during one of the killings.

Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney has long maintained that the serial killer suspect’s wife was out of town when each of the four murders occurred, but attorney John Ray is arguing that is not the case, the New York Post reported.

Ray, who is representing the families of victims Shannan Gilbert and Jessica Taylor, says he spoke to an Atlantic City hotel manager who said the serial killer suspect’s wife and her children arrived at their destination on a different day than investigators believe.

The Daily Wire is not naming the suspect or his wife, who has not been charged with any crimes and is not suspected of any. An attorney for the wife, Bob Macedonio, told Fox News that if Ray is right about the timeline, the case against her husband could fall apart.

“When, in the course of any investigations on any criminal matters, do they do that up front in a bail application?” he told the outlet. “Very, very rarely. … If he’s wrong, it creates reasonable doubt in his whole case.”

The suspect has pleaded not guilty to the murders of Megan Waterman, Melissa Barthelemy, and Amber Costello, who were found on a beach along the south shore of Long Island, New York, back in 2010. In January, the suspect was charged with the murder of a fourth woman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes. He has not been charged with the murders of Gilbert and Taylor, whose bodies were also found on Gilgo Beach. It was actually Gilbert’s disappearance and the subsequent search for her body that revealed the bodies of other women and at least one man in the same area.

Macedonio, the attorney for the suspect’s wife, denied what the hotel manager allegedly said and has sent a letter to the hotel demanding it reveal the employee’s name who disclosed confidential information about his client or give a statement on the record saying the claim is untrue.

The suspect was arrested on July 13 for the murder of the three women. Six days after his arrest, his wife filed for divorce. She and other family members reportedly will receive $1 million for participating in a documentary series with Peacock. The project will follow the family’s lives as they cope with the upcoming trial and how it has uprooted their lives.

Police investigating the Gilgo Beach serial killings are operating on the theory that the suspect committed the murders in his own home, a source told CNN.

The theory is based on the repeated claim that the suspect’s family was out of town during the murders, suggesting he may have lured the victims to his home, a source involved in the investigation told the outlet.


Authorities are operating under this theory, the source said, as they continue to search the suspect’s home for trace evidence of the victims. Killing them at his own home would have allowed him to control the environment while having easy access to the materials found along with the victims at Gilgo Beach, such as tape and burlap bags.

Four bodies were found within days of each other. The body of Barthelemy was found on December 11, 2010, during a police training exercise with a K9, according to a bail application obtained by the Daily Beast. Two days later, police searched the area and discovered the three other bodies.

If convicted, the suspect faces multiple life sentences without the possibility of parole.
