"Hey Dad. Um…so you probably heard by now I missed my interview. Could you maybe put in a good word and tell the editor I'm really not a total flake? I just had a bit of an emergency. And before you freak out and storm the gates - don't. Things are kind of bad here right now. I don't really want to explain to your voice mail…or over the phone. I'm gonna try and get out to see you and we can talk then. Maybe next weekend. Um. Maybe. I don't know. I'll call you. Or you call me when you get this. Either way talk to you later. Love you."

Alleged Two-Strike Killer commits suicide in jail cell
 
By: Ethan Kapoor
Published: June 6th, 2011

The woman accused of killing as many as 22 people in the New York City area committed suicide while awaiting assessment for a potential transfer into special custody.

Caroline Alito, 22, was found unresponsive in her cell Monday morning in the Rose M. Singer Center, the Bronx County district attorney's office said in an e-mailed statement, and she was pronounced dead at about 9:15 a.m.

"Alito was alone in her cell, and all evidence collected thus far indicates that she took her own life," the statement said.

Authorities will investigate to determine the facts and circumstances surrounding her death, the district attorney said.
Alito, a high school drop-out and former resident of North Castle, NY, had confessed to the murder of 22 people in New York City between late 2010 and mid-2011. A search of her apartment revealed what one detective referred to as "alarming evidence" of her guilt, and at the time of questioning a weapon fitting the description of the murder weapon was found in her possession.

Although Alito's lawyer could not be reached for comment, Thomas Salem (36), an advocate with victims services group Survivors Against Fear, or SAF, who had known and worked with Alito for almost two years, said he was shocked and saddened by both Alito's actions and her subsequent death.  

"I don't understand why she did what she did, " Salem said. "She was a troubled girl. It was sad. Nothing seemed to work for her."

Alito, a survivor of the 2006 San Diego Earthquake, had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and arrested several times on substance abuse charges. Salem had previously intervened on Alito's behalf to hire  attorney Ed Marshall, 57, and facilitated her placement in court-ordered rehab. She had allegedly been clean for over a year.
 
Although investigation into the suspect's death is already underway, Alito's lawyer had delivered a letter to the suspect's estranged mother, Judith Alito, which a neighbor remarked the suspect's mother considers a suicide note. Though Judith Alito declined to comment, the neighbor said, "In a way, I think she felt her daughter died a long time ago. This was only a formality."

Despite the confession and evidence collected to date, many feel Alito's suicide prevents them from ever truly gaining closure.

"Countless families have suffered from Alito's actions," said attorney Scott Day. "The impending criminal prosecution was their only opportunity to confront her, and now she has taken that away as well."

Alito was taken in for questioning early Sunday morning after police received a tip she had confessed to the murders. She had not yet been formally arraigned.

X-Factor Investigations hired

Family members of a suspected victim of the Two-Strike Killer have hired X-Factor Investigations to look into the murder of their loved one.

Sources say X-Factor Investigations was integral to the February apprehension of a man suspected in the disappearance of multiple mutants in District X, and who was later taken into federal custody.

Murdered man possible victim of "Two-Strike Killer"
Police investigation intensified

By Harrison Bennet

DeShawn James, 40, was found stabbed to death early this morning.

James' wife Shana said her husband left to walk their dog around 10 pm and never returned. His body was found near West 14th and 6th Avenue at approximately 4 am.

Though police did not disclose any details, witnesses say the victim was stabbed twice, once in the neck and once in the leg. An alleged photograph of the scene, apparently taken on a witness' cellphone, has appeared on blogsite Gawker.com.

While still unwilling to confirm these deaths to be the work of a serial killer, the NYPD have formed a special task force to investigate the death of Margaret and Celeste Hoey. It is expected this task force will also be investigating the murder of DeShawn James.

DeShawn James is the 22nd homicide victim in 8 months to suffer the "two-strike" kill alleged to be the signature of the rumored serial killer. If a single individual is responsible, his victims already exceed those of New York killers Joel Rifkin, Arthur Shawcross, and David Berkowitz.

Mother and child slain in possible serial murder

BY: Jessica Gardinier
Published: May 30th, 2011
RIVERSIDE PARK - The theory that a serial killer is responsible for the recent stabbing deaths of victims throughout the five boroughs gained momentum last night with the apparent homicide of Margaret Hoey and her daughter.

Hoey, 31, was an account executive of Wallstreet firm Kenston & Watts known for taking nightly walks with her 13 month old daughter Celeste. She was found dead near Riverside Park around 9:30 pm last night, the victim of two fatal stab wounds.

Hoey's daughter was found beside her, still in her stroller. She had also been fatally stabbed.

According to Terrence Levinson, the Gawker.com contributor who put forth the theory of an unidentified serial killer two days ago, these "two-strike murders" date back at least eight months, with potential victims numbering as many as 19. However, authorities have been quick to point out the many arguments against this theory. The victims are of no particular gender, class, or race - bodies have been found in multiple boroughs - the victims share no similarities other than stabbing as a cause of death. This degree of diversity is unusual amongst serial killers.

Department spokesman for the Manhattan County Police Antonio Delente has issued a brief statement.

"We have entertained the idea we may be talking about a serial killer," said Delente. "The case is currently under review for formal submission to the FBI. A decision should be made by the end of this week."

Levinson, who remains convinced the murders are committed by a single individual, criticized the NYPD for a lack of centralization and failure to pool its resources, but conceded there are difficulties in doing so.

"There were people in the department who suspected something because the method used [by the killer] was so unique," said Levinson, "but homicides get handled in the precinct they occur. These killings have been all over the place."

But not, it has been noted, outside of New York City’s five boroughs.

Levinson argues that the lack of specific victimology is precisely what makes the alleged killer so terrifying.

Says Levinson, "These attacks are truly random. They've been happening to anyone of any age and any race."

Police investigation of Hoey's death is ongoing.

CRIME

New York City's unidentified serial killer

Terrence Levinson - Why, if a story "bleeds it leads", have none of the major news outlets addressed the serial killer in New York City?

Three weeks ago 23 year old Mohit Choudhury was found dead of two precise knife wounds in Washington Heights. Four weeks before that police identified 37 year old Melissa Huynh, also the victim of a two-strike stabbing. Much like 57 year old Robert Goldfarb, a realtor in Queens who was found dead of, you guessed it, two stab wounds a little over a week before.

Stabbings aren't uncommon. Fatal stabbings, all of which consist of one strike to the leg and another to the neck, are not.

According to sources, in the last eight months there have been 19 homicides that fit this "two-strike kill" pattern. For comparison, in 2010 NYC had 523 homicides. If the stabbing deaths of these 19 victims are the work of a serial killer, a single individual is already responsible for almost 4% of last year's death rate. And they've been happening in every borough.

Don't take my word for it: These assaults are clearly recorded on Spotcrime.com's New York map.

Father Risman's gone crazy. He keeps talking about Armageddon caused by the mutants, and us having to cleanse them. He says that I have to get ready for some 'Holy War', but I don't even know what's right anymore.

I need to get out, but I don't know how! He has us in some kind of steel mill outside of Pittsburgh. But other than when he leaves me in my room at night, he's always around me. Like he knows something's going on.

I don't know what to do, but you're the only one I can turn to. Please help Nicky!

Charles,

I have some difficult news. Lilandra Neramani has just been arrested by her brother under charges of treason. She believes that her brother has engineered the recent bombings in New Delhi in order to create a pretext under which Indian forces can occupy Pakistan. I've taken a look at our most recent satellite imagery, and it looks like she's right. There are massive movements of armor and artillary in and around the Thar Desert near the borders, and we've noted heat blooms in the engines of their carrier fleet in Mumbai, which means they're going to be moving the fleet soon.

Take a look at the information, and I'll arrange a secure line to talk to you directly.

I think it's actually happening, Charles. God help us all when it starts.

As the two of you are undoubtedly aware, a certain someone has a dreaded annual event rapidly approaching once again. I already have plans to come home to surprise my darling, Maddie, but being that she's as cunning and brilliant as I am, there's no doubt in my mind she'll expect that.

This is where the two of you come in. While I may be anticipated, the two of you would serve as a welcome surprise that I doubt she will foresee.

Attendees of the ESU Day Zero memorial last night were shocked when the announcement of a new Helix chapter on campus turned violent. After speeches from Bethany Moore and Carlie Barlet, two prominent HeliX leaders, anti-mutant protesters demonstrated their ire at the new ESU Helix leaders, Charles Rowe and Charlotte Lincoln by hurling abuse at the pair. A larger fight broke out after one protester threw a bottle on stage. The brawl that followed was dispersed through the combined efforts of the local police, members of the crowd both human and mutant.

[from] USMC Overseas Procurement Office (USAC200-4500B) - Karachi div.

Professor,

I apologize about the seemingly duplicity, but I'm trying to bury this email off channel, and the Marine Corps outdated and exceedingly busy and boring procurement system is the least monitored and secure method I could find.

I received a private message from Lilandra Neramani through, let's just say, 'unofficial' channels. As she noted in her last letter to us, as a result of her involvement the re-acquisition of Lhendup Rimpoche Lhatsun, her brother organized several high level ministerial appointments under her initiative, and has shown increased trust in his sister.

Thanks to Lilandra, apparently a Sikh politician named Mankaran Singh Shahraj has finally started to organize some effective opposition of Neramani's leading coalition, and has been putting together a plan to curb what he terms as a 'reckless and unnecessarily antagonistic foreign policy'. In short, he's the only man on the table in their Parliament with the connections and pull to hope to counterbalance Prime Minister Neramani's increasingly worrisome aggressive stance.

Shahraj has been on a working vacation in Chharabra, putting together some kind of coalition strategy to present to the other parties that are considering joining his cause. We just got word that a group of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists have seized the Wallflower hotel, and taken every one in it hostage. Including Shahraj. According to some information that Lilandra was privy to, she believes that her brother is going to use this incident (he might have even had a hand in orchestrating it), to make sure that Shahraj is an unfortunate victim when Indian authorities retake the hotel.

Charles, I realize this is starting to edge towards a lot of bounderies for you, but this is a state-organized assassination designed to take the last controls off a man with territorial ambitions, nuclear weapons, a massive military and a mutant strike force of significant power. It can't be allowed to happen.

The Unitied States can't do anything. Even if they knew I was in touch with Neramani, there's no way State or the Joint Chiefs could put together a feasible operation even if they wanted to. But you can. I still have a lot of friends who owe me a lot of favours in the service, and if you're willing, I think I can arrange to get your people in and out of Northern India secretly.

I will completely understand if you say no, Charles. There's nothing to like about this, and it involves risking you and your own in a major fashion. But this is important, and if not us, who?

Scott,

I realize I'm making a habit out of asking for favors, but I've got to do it again. You know how I feel about human trafficking, but what I never told you is that I'm not the only one around here taking direct action. Lately the 'traffic' has been mutants, more often than not coming from Indonesia - it's a bad trend, and a suspicious one. We've been trying our best to intercept the shipments and get the rescuees to trustworthy aid agencies, but we've developed a real problem with the Indian navy.

The reason I'm emailing is that our latest rescue attempt went south. I managed to get the kids back here to Madripoor, but only because the other ship involved drew off the Indians. They're still out there - the Indians haven't caught up with them yet, but it's only a matter of time. Scott, if they get that crew, it's going to blow our whole pipeline wide open. Maybe permanently.

I've attached details for a contact of mine in Indonesia. I hope to hell you can help, because none of the so-called legitimate authorities around here give a damn.
