NY investigators expand search for victims of possible serial killer

NJ woman still missing

WANTAGH, N.Y. — Investigators searching for evidence of a serial killer are hitting the ground around New York’s Jones Beach State Park.

About 125 searchers, some with dogs and others on horseback, scoured the area Monday. Police have not determined whether the search will include sending divers into a 40-acre pond that’s part of a wildlife refuge.

The new search area is along Ocean Parkway in Nassau County. Officers in neighboring Suffolk County uncovered eight sets of human remains in recent months. A New Jersey woman who was the initial focus of the search is still missing.

The area is thick with underbrush, creating difficult conditions. A thick fog delayed an aerial search early Monday.

Authorities believe the deaths may be the work of a serial killer. No suspect has been identified.
