The Atlantic City Prostitute Killings Revisited
More than a decade ago in Atlantic City, four women lost their lives at the hands of a serial killer who was apparently only targeting prostitutes.
The four women who were killed (Molly Dilts, Kim Raffo, Barbara Breidor, and Tracy Ann Roberts) were all working as prostitutes in Atlantic City.
Over five weeks, the killer took them one by one, dumping their bodies in a brackish, trash-strewn drainage canal that runs between the Atlantic City Expressway and the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, just over the Atlantic City border.
Two women walking behind the Golden Key Motel, a $15-a-night flophouse, discovered Raffo’s body on the morning of Nov. 20, 2006. Police found the other victims in the hours afterward.
Some killers leave behind breadcrumbs—hair, skin, semen or blood—that give investigators a clear trail to follow. In the Atlantic City case, detectives didn’t even have a crime scene.
In the months and years after the killings, investigators interviewed hundreds of people, from a man who had a collection of women’s shoes in his Pacific Avenue hotel room to a local petty criminal who confessed while jailed. He was later found to have an alibi and referred to a psychiatric facility.
Investigators gave their closest attention to a Salem County handyman who had been living at the Golden Key Motel when the murders occurred.
The man, who at one point was placed under 24-hour surveillance, later pleaded guilty to an invasion of privacy charge for secretly videotaping his girlfriend’s daughter in the bathroom of the couple’s home.
But authorities could find no connection to the Atlantic City case, and he was never publicly declared a suspect. Though his name was widely reported at the time, NJ Advance Media is not naming him now because he has not been charged in connection with the killings.
To this day, police still have not found the killer.
