Is Long Island The Dumping Ground Of Choice For A New Serial Killer?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Long Island, New York has earned a rather dubious reputation once again. It is unfortunately one that it has already had in the past and possibly never lost in the eyes of local police officials. Parts of the Ocean Parkway, particularly near Jones Beach, has again become the site of dismembered bodies, a place where killers are coming to dump their victims with no fear of being seen by witnesses.

In December, the bodies of four prostitutes were found just steps from that highway in the same area were other bodies and parts of bodies have been found in the past. Now investigators are dealing with additional, grisly remains, this time including a man who has yet to be identified and the body of a toddler.

Additionally, the torsoes of two women were found in the same area. The remainder of the women’s bodies were found some forty five miles away in Suffolk County. There have been a total of ten sets of remains found recently, all cases remain pending with virtually no leads whatsoever.

The Ocean Parkway is described as narrow and frequently fairly isolated. In addition, there are no video cameras on any part of this stretch of highway nor are there any lights at all. During busy times, the Parkway is used by Long Island residents to avoid traffic jams.

All of the remains that have been found in that area have all been located on the north side, an area described as overgrown and brushy, not a place to take a stroll. Because of the conditions where the bodies have been found, police are now searching the traffic citations and contact logs to see if there is any clue, no matter how remote they might be.

A New York area serial killer, Joel Rifkin, has acknowledged as many as 17 victims during his active killing period. Those victims were either buried in the east Long Island area or dumped into creeks in Brooklyn. When asked, he denied any knowledge of the victims that were found in that secluded area at any point.

The local police as well as the FBI are not ruling out the possibility of a serial killer in connection with a few of the cases, however, they are also saying that all ten sets of remains found recently are the work of at least two or more killers. The area is just prime real estate in the eyes of an opportunistic killer, with very little traffic during the nighttime hours and no lights to worry about. At one point, the FBI was considering the possibility that the death of the prostitutes could be linked to one killer, possibly an overland trucker or someone who was similarly isolated for long periods of time.

That area of Jones Beach has been searched more than a time or two, particularly in connection with several missing women who have a history of prostitution.
