Police say a man walking his dog discovered the remains around 6:30 p.m. near a county park off Wading River Road. Investigators say the remains do appear to be human and were found in a heavily wooded area about 300 feet north of the road.

The remains seem to have been there for about five years, according to police, who say an anthropologist is being brought in to examine them.

This is not the first time the area has been used as a dumping ground.

The torsos of two women were found there in 2000 and 2003. The victims’ other remaining body part were found at Gilgo Beach, where a serial killer is suspected of murdering ten people.
