"Levy's upset, [Dormer] gave out too much information about the burlap bags, that the victims were all on Craigslist, that they were prostitutes," the source told the Post. "[Dormer] embarrassed the department."
Dormer has been given a months’ notice and reportedly has begun looking for a new job. Dormer has already inquired about a security position with Dowling College in Oakdale, Long Island.
Mark Smith a spokesman for Levy denied the rumors: "[Levy] has not asked [Dormer] to resign. He's extraordinarily happy with . . . his work."
Levy released a statement saying that, "Rich Dormer is the best police commissioner Suffolk County has ever had as evidenced by the reduction in total crime of over 20 percent during our mutual tenure."
"I'm not surprised to hear that anyone in the administration might be interviewing for positions after Dec. 31st," Levy said in his statement.
The remains of ten bodies have been discovered since last December along the Suffolk and Nassau South Shore.
Investigators suspect it is the work of one or more serial killers.
