Family and friends of a missing woman feared to be the victim of a possible serial killer met on a Long Island beach on Sunday for what would have been the woman’s 24th birthday.
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer announced Tuesday that seven of the 10 victims may have been prostitutes — including an Asian male who was found in women’s clothing.
The family of a missing woman held a vigil on Sunday at the site on Oak Beach on Long Island where she was last seen.
Police now say the remains found on Tuesday night are definitely those of a human.
Suffolk County Police have confirmed to CBS 2 they have found what they believe are human remains on Gilgo Beach. Authorities were still at the scene late Tuesday night combing over evidence.
Who are they? Police revealed Friday the bodies found on Long Island may not be those of missing prostitutes. Now they hope new clues will lead them to the victims’ identities.
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said State Police have joined in the bodies investigation, and assured residents that “Jack The Ripper” is not on the loose.
