Jerry, Pam and readers; The Nassau District Attorney's office just told me the man arrested in Jericho on grand larceny charges is NOT -- I repeat -- NOT connected to the Pius case. It is not the same person. Thanks for asking.

hear those landscapers back outside again? coincidence i think not!

It was interesting that he has the same name and is the same age as the Peter Quartararo involved back in '79... I wonder where the man charged in the Jericho grand larceny was living in 1979...

Doug: Yes, but a coincidence. D.A.'s office says the man charged in Jericho is not the same man connected with the 1979 case.

Doug, I find it interesting also, and was wondering the same thing. Do you think because of his age at the time they can not say?
