Akeem Cruz was the pimp of 22-year-old Megan Waterman, and also one of the last people to see her alive. Feds are searching his laptop for information.

A pimp of one of the slain craigslist hookers dumped on an isolated Long Island beach is in the feds’ cross hairs.

FBI agents sought a search warrant this week to troll through the laptop of Akeem Cruz, a Brooklyn pimp and cocaine dealer, according to records filed in  Brooklyn Federal Court.

Cruz, also known as “Vybe” and “Mello,” was one of the last people known to have seen 22-year-old  Megan Waterman alive when he pimped her out at a  
Holiday Inn Express
in Hauppauge, L.I., around  Memorial Day, according to her family and court records.

Waterman’s remains, along with those of three other missing prostitutes, were found on Gilgo Beach in December. Suffolk cops have said they believe the slayings were the work of a serial killer.

The court records don’t mention Waterman’s murder, but do say Cruz posted numerous craigslist ads selling the Maine woman’s sexual services.
