A murder in Mastic Beach back in the very early 80's? From what I remember, the murderer was a local guy who worked at a video game parlor and convinced a young boy and a young girl to follow him into a basement of a deserted house. He then tortured the boy to death and dumped his body under a mattress near the bay. I think the little girl lived.
Anyone remember if that monster was convicted? Is he still serving time if he was convicted?

My mom personally knew the little boy from church and was just telling me this whole story. She worked at the school he attended and remembers his first name was Doug. Does anyone remember his last name? She also became close with the girl involved after this murder and assault, and was trying to look up old stories about it to show me.

The case of the little girl who was not able to get the proper treatment for her cancer or the poor guy who was attacked with a plumbing snake and so may other "Redneck like" incidents.

It seems as if these heinous acts have kind of stopped since the village began to clean itself up and take control of their own destiny.

The boy murdered in the early eighties was Douglas Meyer. He was in my Social Studies class at the time. He was very poor and picked on at school. I have his face embedded in my mind. The story I heard is that he told Douglas and the girl that he would pay them to clean his basement because he was having his girlfriend and her three kids move in. He locked them in separate rooms and went back and forth sexually assaulting Douglas. Douglas put up a fight and then was stabbed over 20 times. The girl escaped out a window. The bastard that did this hid his body in a garbage dumpster and put a mattress over him. This was behind a second hand clothing store named Chickies.

The village has nothing to with any of this. Good or bad.
By your argument I can say..."oh my, ever since the village was voted in, we have had soooo many wild animal found here~! Mostly alligators! I guess now that we are a village, we will see more alligators!" We never had reports of alligators BEFORE we became a village and a bunch after, so, I guess it's the villages fault. Do you see how stupid that sounds?

Although you are right this time, I did notice there is a noticeable reduction in news accounts of crimes in MBV. I remember when a chrome colored flip phone, owned by the clerk in the Trac gas station became missing.(It was probably stolen). Somehow, Newsday had the nerve to report this as a lead story saying "phone robbed in Mastic Beach". The same day there was a murder in another town, but you had to read most of the article to find out where it happened. There is no doubt that the perception of MBV will take time to change. Mistake Beach, remember that?

I have no clue what you are talking about with this example you provide. There is no doubt that the crimes that used to make you shake your head because they were so abhorrent in nature have receded.

That's a good thing so why are you complaining about it.

- Actually it was the Oppiccis that owned the ice cream/arcade and it was the owners brother in law that committed the crime not his brother. He was not on parole for molesting other children. Also it was not an abandoned home that he brought them to but rather the basement of the home that his wife and daughter lived. He was convicted to 37.5 years to life. I know these things because he is my father.

No he hid the clothes in the dumpster. The body was in a Marsh covered with the mattress. The girl he gave money to and sent her home telling her not to tell. And the house was already occupied. My mother was at work when this happened. I am his daughter and have lived my whole life bearing the weight of his sins. My sympathies to both families.

My sympathies to both families. I truly hope the girl involved was able to move past this nightmare. As the daughter of the man guilty of the crime I have grown up carrying the weight of his sins. His actions destroyed many lives.

It was 1981. The man was convicted and sentenced to 37.5 years to life. He will never be free again. I am his daughter.

I remember Doug Meyers. He was my friend. We met in 2nd grade. His family had no money and lived in a tiny little run down house on the border of Mastic Beach and Shirley. He and the little girl were walking own Neighborhood Rd on the way to town when they were approached by that monster. He convinced them to get in the car because it was cold, and he promised to drive them home. That was the last time Doug was seen alive. A few weeks later they found his body under a dirty mattress behind Chickies Place on Mastic Rd.
I think of Doug often. He was a sweet gentle kid, an underdog who when it came time, gave his own life to spare the life of another. He was torchered and stabbed to death and then thrown out like garbage.
I hate the sick pervert who did his and I hope he suffers every day of his miserable life. I know he was convicted and sentenced but the term was short and he is out of jail for about 10 years now.
Dougs family did not have a lot of money, if any at all. I remember he wore them winter coat in 7th grade that he wore in 2nd. It was short in the sleeves, and didn't close anymore. His clothes were all from good will, and he was skinny, but he was smart, he was focussed, and I knew that of anyone else in that school he had a huge future. I often wonder what he would have become. A doctor? A lawyer? A teacher?
I love the movie The Polar Express because the little boy who is unsure about boarding the train reminds me of Doug in so many ways that I actually well up.
I miss you Doug. You were a good, sweet kid who didn't deserve to die. You are and forever will be a hero in my eyes. Sore with the angels myfriend!!
The man convicted has not been released. Nor will he ever be. He received 37.5 - life. I am that mans daughter. My sympathies to both families involved.

I also considered myself a friend of Doug's and will never forget the news mobiles at our junior high (1980/81, he was in eighth grade). I still think about his empty chair next to me in Mr Breschard's class when we all found out that his body had been found in the reeds past the end of Cypress Dr. He was often picked on and I so wish he could have grown up to show everyone what he was made of.#heartofgold God Bless him and his sister.

Was he killed on PennWood Drive by any chance? I live on Pennwood Drive and I have a ghost in my house and was just wondering if I can try to find out who he is?
