On Nov. 20, 2006, passers-by stumbled upon the bodies of four women in shallow graves behind The Golden Key Motel on the Black Horse Pike just outside of Atlantic City. All were clothed, but their shoes and socks had been removed. Their heads pointed east towards mecca and the dirty glitz of the casinos. Beloved and beautiful, all four women were reportedly engaged in sex work along “the track”, an area stroll.
Police have investigated three men though none have been charged. DNA evidence was apparently washed away by the rain. Profiles of the killer have described him as a loner, social misfit and foot fetishist who doesn’t kill every sex worker he sees.
Some have suggested this killer may be responsible for the murders on Gilgo Beach as well, in part based on the appearance of Facebook pages put up posthumously for both the Long Island and Atlantic City victims. Additionally, at least one of the Long Island victims was determined to be killed in the same manner as the Atlantic City victims – strangulation.
