Gilgo Beach in Long Island became the dumping site for a serial killer (or killers) in 2010. As of April 13, 2011, the remains of ten people have been found. All that have been identified were prostitutes using services like Craigslist to find clients. One of the bodies found was that of a toddler.

Searching of the area around Gilgo Beach resumes occasionally.

Some investigators theorize that the Eastbound Strangler and the Gilgo Beach Serial Killer are the same unsub.
