Quotes from the news wire:
They were familiar with each other, they were associates, whether it be through hanging out or that there was some indication that maybe Lori had assisted them on a few jobs related to [Mackey’s] tree trimming business. There were also some implications that there may have been some involvement between her and Paul Trucchio, but of course, that has never been confirmed.
This case is now going on 14 years, i still remain committed to returning Lori’s remains to her family to give them some level of closure. Even though we gave them a little bit of closure, I still remain committed to returning the rest of Lori home back to Long Island. I’d like to be optimistic that that could happen one day, but that really falls upon those responsible for her murder. And they are Paul Trucchio and Robert Mackey.
The final hours of Lori’s life were violent, this was a violent, heinous act committed against her. In circumstances like this, you want to say that the victim didn’t suffer. But I’m not sure this is the case with this particular investigation based on what we know. The suspects, in this case, had more than enough opportunity [to stop] and they failed to do so. Instead, they took it a step further and dismembered her.
It was huge, any homicide investigator will tell you that one of the first things is knowing your victim, understanding the victim. In a majority of homicide investigations, the victim had known their assailant. It’s not unusual. So for us to be able to finally identify the victim months later allowed us to get the ball rolling on the investigation. We went full steam ahead at that point.
Investigators will often say that we speak for those who can’t speak for themselves, we become the victim’s voice. I spent a lot of time with Lori’s family over the course of this investigation, which lasted several years. Some of those conversations were intelligence-gathering for the investigators. Other parts of those conversations were reassurance to the family that we would get the job done.
