LONG ISLAND, NY
As of April, 2011:
A serial killer (or killers) discarded the bodies of nine, possibly ten, women along several miles of Long Island beachfront. Though officials have speculated the killer may have some association with law enforcement, they’ve named no suspects, nor made any arrests to date.
The number of bodies is up for debate – reports range. The dates of their deaths or disappearances span 2007-2011. Officials have speculated that more than one killer may be using Gilgo Beach as a dumping ground and that they aren’t working in tandem.
Four of the women have been described as advertising erotic services online – a fact that has reassured the general public of their own safety.
These killings may be related to serial killings of women in Atlantic City in 2006.
