Is There a Numerologically-Minded Serial Killer Stalking New York?

Via New York Daily News:

Police aren’t publicly committing to any one theory yet, but they are examining the possibility that the murderer of two people may have chosen his victims for numerological reasons:

Brooklyn shopkeepers are on alert after cops linked two storeowners’ murders to the same gun and suggested the killer might be using numerology to choose his targets.

Isaac Kadare’s store at 1877 86th St., where he was killed last Thursday, and Mohammed Gebeli’s shop at 7718 Fifth Ave., where he was found dead July 6, both have addresses using the same three numbers — a fact that has workers shaken.

    If I say “23″ often enough, will it protect me?

    FNORD!

       Uh, I don’t think so: 1+8+7+7=23!

        Actually 23! = 25,852,016,738,884,976,640,000 
         
        …which has 23 digits….which is a condition that is only true for the prime number 23 and its resultant factorial ie:

        if p = prime and n = # of digits in p!
        p = n IF and ONLY IF p = 23
         
        ARGGHHH!

    from just two clues the rocket scientists have discovered a pattern

    here’s some more clues
    the locations are within 2 miles of each other
    practically in the same Brooklyn neighborhood

    both locations are half way between the Dyker Beach Golf Course & Park
    so maybe the robber is a golfer
    that makes as much sense as the other theory

    we’re scraping the bottom of the story barrel now

     Oh look….. protests everywhere… countries in economic ruin…. but it’s ok, now we have the olympics and a new serial killer to think about. I’m prepared to bet half my shit that this is just another fucking distraction technique and all these people are just another sacrifice on the bonfire.
