On March 23, 2013 the skeletal remains of a female in a suitcase were discovered by construction workers inside an abandoned house at 174 Hull Street in Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn Butcher
On July 9 1997 a male and female were found dismembered in garbage bags in the parking lot of the Borinquen Plaza apartments by a cleanup crew. The NYPD claims neither victim was ever identified but they are still not in NamUS. The next day, July 10, the skull, arms and legs of a female inside of a suitcase were fished out of the water in Brooklyn. The victim also remains unidentified.
In August 1999, 16 year old Jackie Smith disappeared from Avenue N & Utica Avenue in Brooklyn. Her torso was found wrapped in plastic in Rockaway Beach, Queens on June 20, 2000.
On February 20 2002 the skull and hands of a female were found inside the refrigerator of abandoned house at 2743 Fulton Street by workers hired to clear the property. More body parts were also found in the basement. She remains unidentified. The circumstances of her murder and Claribel Quinones are eerily similar.
In November 2002, Andre Jamal Isaac, known as “Sugar Bear” disappeared from Brooklyn after getting into a red BMW-type sports car with his “secret friend”. His torso was found dismembered and wrapped in plastic bags in Rockaway Beach in December 2002 approximately one mile from where Jackie Smith’s torso had been found. His skull was found in a frozen pond in Moriches in Suffolk County on Long Island and his extremities were discovered in a wooded area near a recently constructed house in East Patchogue. In 2020, the Suffolk County Police Department “accidentally” posted Andre Isaac’s case on their Gilgo News website.
In July 2003, the dismembered torso of Jessica Taylor was found in Manorville, NY. Her skull was later recovered along Ocean Parkway in 2011 among 10+ other victims of the Long Island Serial Killer. Like Jackie Smith, Andre Isaac, Claribel Quinones, Tanya Rush and Erica McDaniel, Jessica Taylor lived in Brooklyn, NY…
