Inspired by the New York Times best-selling book "Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery", follow the series as it’s told through previously unheard interviews with family members, friends, police officers, government officials and others whose lives were touched by the gruesome murders. LISK: Long Island Serial Killer premieres on March 11th. Hosted by Chris Mass.

Season 2, Episode 1
S2 Ep2: A Botched Investigation
While the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) was searching for missing sex worker, Shannan Gilbert, it was suddenly faced with the deaths of four more women - the Gilgo 4 - whose dismembered remains were discovered alongside Long Island's Ocean Parkway. Along the way the SCPD committed a series of blunders and procedural missteps, some of which are questionable, which resulted in a botched investigation. Listen as host Chris Mass speaks with people who have unique insight into where mistakes were made. Hosted by Chris Mass.
S2 Ep3: Who Were They and How Did They Get There?
The grim discovery of bodies along Ocean Parkway then leaves investigators with the task of trying to figure out the victims identities. DNA provides the most concrete results but collecting and analyzing DNA has been and still is a time-consuming process that requires cooperation and even luck. And in the case of Suffolk County Police, common scientific sense appears to show their presumptions about at least one death are most likely false. Hosted by Chris Mass.
S2 Ep4: The Oak Beach Drifter
Host Chris Mass speaks with the Oak Beach Drifter, an anonymous figure, who lived with Joe Brewer. The OBD recalls Brewer's questionable behavior and lifestyle choices along with Brewer's claim of an "Ace up his sleeve" if the situation ever called for it. Plus, Chris speaks with renowned criminologist, Dr Kim Rossmo, and forensic psychologist, Dr Jacqueline Sebire, about the power and limitations of even the most advanced case-solving methodologies and how those relate to updates in the LISK case.
S2 Ep5: Profiling LISK
A combination of new techniques, tried and true methodologies and competent investigation are at the core of identifying LISK's character profile. A panel of criminologists describe what specific behavior, exhibited through what we know from the LISK case, says about the killer as a person. Or could LISK potentially be more than one person? Is the nature in which bodies were dumped off Ocean Parkway simply a coincidence? Host, Chris Mass, dives into these questions and more.
Very well put together. Putting all the women first and their families, while still giving us as many facts as they have! Love the conversations with friends and families! Terrific podcast, kudos to all that were involved!!!!!!!
Through and thoughtful
Well done, so engaging, and deeply respectful of the women and their families.
Why so much repetition?
There's huge pieces of audio that repeat from episode to episode. In fact, I started season 2 and there's a replay of an interview from E1. I though I was listening to the wrong episode. Now they're talking about getting info on a phone, and this whole chunk is from season 1.
Goos stuff... but lazy editing.
