LONG ISLAND SERIAL KILLER: 'HELP ME! HELP ME!'
A woman--identified as Shannan Gilbert--was banging on his door, begging for help. She screamed: "Help me! Help me!" Coletti quickly dialed as the terrified woman made a run for it, tripping down his steep steps. A year later, Coletti is certain the woman was Gilbert--the missing hooker whose disappearance triggered the Long Island Serial
Killer probe. So far 10 bodies or remains have been found. Detectives suspect a serial killer is at work, stalking the escorts on Craigslist and then murdering them and dumping them on a lonely stretch of Long Island beach.
"A missing person detective came in August, was asking about her. I said, 'Where have you been?' " Coletti said, hinting cops have fallen down on the job. "They never got a statement from me in June," he says.
