Police in New York fear a serial killer may have abandoned four bodies, each apparently dumped from a car, along a desolate, windswept stretch of road near a beach east of the Big Apple.
Officers found the badly decomposed remains metres from the roadway near Cedar Beach as they searched for a missing prostitute. At least two of the bodies were female, but authorities haven't determined the gender of the other two.
Investigators were taking DNA samples and examining dental records to try to identify them.
Police said the four appeared to have been killed elsewhere and then brought to the site. The remains were badly decomposed, but appeared to have been dumped over an 18-month period.
The first set of remains were found on Saturday and the three other bodies were found on Monday. Police are searching the vast remote area for additional bodies.
