Another Possible Gilgo Beach Serial Killer Victim

 

Police have recovered another skeleton from a wooded area in Manorville, N.Y., that appears to be something of a dumping ground for dead bodies, after a man jogging with his dog alerted authorities.

“The [remains] have been there for several years,” a spokeswoman for the Suffolk County Police Department told ABCNews.com. “There is no indication they were connected to the others, but obviously we’re going to look into that.”

The remains of four other individuals have been found in the area in recent years, but the mystery behind them has gone largely unsolved.

Matt Samuel, who found the latest skeleton, told the New York Daily News he had walked by the area “a hundred times before” but noticed Friday night that something unusual was sticking out of the ground.

“It was wrapped in bed sheets and a plastic bag. It was a whole body, but just the bones, there was trees growing up through it, so it has been there a long time,” he said.

The partial remains of two women who were found in 2000 and 2011 in the wooded area are believed to be victims of the Gilgo Beach serial killer, who discarded body parts in the Gilgo Beach area in Nassau County, as well as some in Manorville, which is 30 miles away.

The unidentified remains of two men were also discovered in 2000 and 2003, however they are not believed to be related to the Gilgo Beach murderer, police have said.

The medical is expected to release a report in the next few weeks that could identify the latest skeleton and the cause of death.

YAPHANK, N.Y. — Police have released a composite sketch of an unidentified victim whose skull was among the remains of 11 people found along a remote New York beach highway last year.

The artist’s rendering released Saturday is of a woman whose partial remains were found along Long Island’s Ocean Parkway last April. According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System online database, the same person’s left and right legs were found on Blue Point Beach, Fire Island, in April 1996.

The website describes the victim as a white woman aged between 18 and 50. The posting adds that she “may have had surgery on her left ankle” and had “red toenail polish on all toes.”

The online database notes that the woman’s hands have not been recovered.

When contacted by The New York Times, a spokeswoman for the Suffolk County Police Department would not comment on how the unidentified woman had been killed.

Investigators believe a possible serial killer is responsible for 10 of the bodies. The remains of an 11th victim — a 24-year-old woman named Shannan Gilbert — were found in late December. But authorities say Gilbert accidentally drowned.

Suffolk County police are asking anyone with information about the woman’s identity to contact them or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
