Police: Body of New Jersey woman believed to be found

The body of a New Jersey woman whose disappearance last year triggered an expansive search that led authorities to the discovery of 10 sets of human remains, is believed to have been found, police said Tuesday.

What are believed to be the skeletal remains of Shannan Gilbert were found on Long Island's Oak Beach, less than a week after authorities announced that they had uncovered her belongings in the area, said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer.

A medical examiner will confirm whether the remains belong to Gilbert.

    What a strange story. It sounds like she just ran in there to hide and never made it out. I hope they find whoever dumped all the other bodies.
