Nassau County Remains may be Linked to Gilgo Beachon January 24, 2013 in Unsubs by Brian Combs
Police said yesterday that the remains of a young woman found near the water on the north shore of Nassau County may be connected to those found on and around Gilgo Beach.
Nassau Homicide Squad Detective Lt. John Azzata said:
Obviously, we’re near the water, [Gilgo] bodies were found near the water — that’s a similarity but there are other dissimilarities so it’s much too early to say that we definitely have a connection.
Azzata said that the newly discovered victim died of trauma, but refused to give specifics. He also declined to say whether the remains were found in a plastic bag, as some of the Gilgo Beach victims were.
The new remains are of a woman between 20 and 30 years old. She was found wearing a gold chain with a gold pig. Investigators believe that the jewelry may indicate a connection to the Asian community.
More information will hopefully be made available after examination by a forensic anthropologist.
