[Updated at 5:24 p.m.] The remains of three additional people were discovered Monday morning near Gilgo Beach on Long Island, according to Richard Dormer, Suffolk County Police commissioner.
A total of eight sets of human remains have been found in the area since a missing New Jersey woman prompted the searches beginning in 2010.
Shannan Gilbert, 24, of Jersey City, New Jersey, was last seen alive on May 1. As authorities searched for clues about her disappearance last year, they uncovered the bodies of four prostitutes in various stages of decomposition.
Police say the hunt for a potential serial killer continues, as does the search for Gilbert.FULL STORY
