Something else happened on May 1, 2010, two worlds collided; Utopia Guide’s “CCC” (Carney Construction Crew) and LISK.
The fact that Shannan used a driver to get there was unknown to LISK. While he watched the car go in to the Oak Beach neighborhood, he wasn’t able to see who was driving. I imagine that Brewer went to Hackett’s that early morning (where the call to CVS came in), and Shannan was given a script-how he got her information (under the guise of medical history). For what? My guess is that it was GHB; prescribed for narcolepsy. Shannan (and Brewer) may have been led to believe that it was something else. When a doctor hands you a script, you don’t usually look it over.
Shannan and Brewer got back, had a few beers, and did their thing. Before the second go, she took the script. GHB is also a date rape drug. Every symptom that Shannan had (confusion, sounding drunk, aggitated, unaware of surroundings…) are synonymous to GHB. It only takes about 15 min for it to kick in, and at that point, Brewer would want her out, and Shannan would think Brewer was trying to kill her (it was Brewer that took Shannan to Hackett’s home). If Pak was being dismissive to Shannan, in her confusion she would think he knew what was happening and part of it and fear him, as well. She ran past the front gate, to a familiar place, to someone she thought she could trust and someone who could help her.
Hackett was ready and waiting, and he probably had her get in his Forester and drove East in the neighborhood, and out through a weathered path to the road. By the time he got to the boat dock, she had already passed out. Yes, he has a boat, and is a regular boater. Something you become good at while boating-keeping your balance. (The video clip of Hackett seeing the cameras and hobbling has been pulled from the CBS-NY site, but there’s still a clip of him toward the end of the 48 Hrs show having no trouble walking until he sees he’s being videotaped.) He likely took her to his Oak Island hideout before killing her, and since he’s a necrophiliac, well… I’ll leave it at that. (Should any family member read this, I’m not out to be upsetting.)
The news reports stated after Shannan’s body was found that 2 key bones were missing from Shannan’s neck. From his time as Suffolk County Medical Examiner, Hackett was well aware that without Shannan’s hyoid bone, the ME would have to report her death as inconclusive.
In the 19 months before Shannan’s body was found, there were many attempts to cover his tracks and point the finger in different directions. He was, in a sense, stalking the chatter of the investigation and gathering info on who best to point the finger at. The victims of his finger pointing were “the drifter”, “truthspider”, “flukeyou”, and James Bissett (and me, and my husband, and anyone who mentions Hackett’s name). I believe Hackett left Joseph Brewer out of this finger pointing because Brewer was the only person besides Shannan that could say that Shannan was in the presence of Hackett that morning, but he didn’t; it was a silent respect and I’m sure Hackett has plenty of information on Brewer’s “dirty little secrets” that Brewer would not want to open that Pandora’s Box.
The worlds that collided were from the crazy days of UtopiaGuide.com. Hackett was a member there at one point, until he was Exiled. He started stalking the members (including the men). It came to a head when wives were being informed of their husbands’ “trysts”, and calls were being made at strange hours, and his “friends” wouldn’t go out with him when he wanted. He basically had a Category 5 temper tantrum and took it upon himself to stalk the members to find out who they were seeing regularly to victimize the women they saw so they would be blamed for his murders. That is how he chose his 2010 victims.
The link back to Brewer is not lost on me, and it’s a much bigger issue than UtopiaGuide or the “CCC”. That is for another day…
