Police: 4 Bodies Found On Oak Beach On L.I.

Investigators Not Offering Details; Probe Ongoing

OAK BEACH, N.Y. (CBS 2/AP) — The search for a missing woman has uncovered four bodies, hidden on a remote Long Island beach.

And investigators fear this may just be the beginning.

The grisly find started Saturday when dogs unearthed a skeleton, and then three more bodies stunned investigators on Monday.

Crime scene investigators worked late into the rainy night on Monday, digging into what emerged as a sandy graveyard.

Body parts were found, reports CBS 2’s Dave Carlin. A yellow marker was placed on each grisly find.

Suffolk County police confirmed a total of four bodies, three of them found late Monday along a stretch of the Oak Beach community between Gilgo and Cedar beaches.

Detectives on the scene were not offering theories.

Police sources told Newsday some of the bodies were wrapped in burlap and at least one was female. That was reportedly the first body. The skeletal remains were found Saturday just before 3 p.m. by Officer John Mallia and his canine officer “Blue.”

Newsday is reporting Police were following up on a missing persons report for alleged prostitute Shonnan Gilbert, 24, of Jersey City, who disappeared in May.

Police are now in an urgent race to find out who these people were, why they were callously deposited here and who is responsible — questions that make neighbors in the area nervous and anxious for answers.

Oak Beach is on a remote barrier island that divides the Great South Bay with the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of a series of beaches run by towns and municipalities.

The investigation is ongoing.

Detectives ask anyone with information to contact the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All Calls will remain confidential.

    To the Killer: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a spacecraft and head for the Moon. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are.
