OAK BEACH, N.Y. (AP) — The discovery of eight bodies on a New York highway leading to Jones Beach has detectives searching beyond the thicket of sea grass and evergreens where the bodies were found.
Police are scouring credit card receipts, telephone records, old traffic tickets and even applications for clamming licenses in the hunt for a possible serial killer.
Police, who are expanding their search for victims next week, suspect they may be chasing a serial killer. They have not named any suspects in the case, which began as a search for a missing Jersey City, N.J., woman who has yet to be found.
Locals on Long Island are worried that more bodies could turn up.
High school teacher Vincent Benazzi says, "Whether or not it's a dumping ground or whatever they want to call it, it's just a sick feeling."
