Police still don't know the identity of Robert Shulman's second victim, found mutilated behind a Yonkers pizza place 25 years ago.
Robert Shulman, left, is led from a Patchogue, N.Y., police station Monday, April 8, 1996 in handcuffs following his arrest in the murders of prostitutes whose dismembered bodies were found in garbage bins.
Shulman, 42, was arrested Sunday and charged with two murders discovered in Suffolk County in 1994 and 1995, said Detective Lt. John Gierasch, a county police spokesman. In addition, he has admitted killing three other women found dead in Brooklyn and Yonkers between 1991 and 1995, Gierasch said.
In this episode, Crime Scene talks with veteran homicide detective Vernon Geberth, called "Mr. Murder," about how sexual serial killers like Shulman operate, and with Det. John Geiss, whose job it is to identify the woman who has become known as the "Yonkers Jane Doe."
As Geiss noted toward the end of our conversation, it's been 25 years since the death of the Yonkers Jane Doe, and the autopsy showed that she had at least two children.
He's hoping those kids have grown up now, and maybe have a recollection of their mom, or might want to provide some DNA and find out if it was their mom whose body was so unceremoniously dumped in Yonkers 25 years ago.
If you think you might know the identity of the Yonkers Jane Doe, get in contact with Detective Lt. John Geiss directly at the Yonkers Police Department, or reach out and we'll connect the two of you. Here's how:
