The police found a skull as well as a bag containing what one law enforcement official said appeared to be “upper and lower extremities.” They were found two or three miles apart; the authorities said they had not determined if the remains came from more than one victim.
Both finds were made off the northern edge of Ocean Parkway, as were the discoveries of the eight bodies in Suffolk County. The first four of those bodies were found near Gilgo Beach in December and belonged to female prostitutes in their 20s who had been missing since as long ago as 2007.
Because those four victims were all sex workers and their bodies had all been dumped in burlap sacks, investigators suspect the same killer was responsible.
