YAPHANK, N.Y. (AP) - A New York police official says 10 sets of remains found along a remote beach highway are likely not connected to the 2006 deaths of four Atlantic City prostitutes.
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer says "The indications we have right now is that there is no connection."
Police on Long Island have uncovered the remains of 10 people along Ocean Parkway since December. Only four have been identified.
They belonged to women working as prostitutes, leading authorities to check on a similar 2006 case in Atlantic City where four prostitutes were slain.
Police suspect a serial killer may be responsible for some of the deaths on Long Island.
Also Tuesday, police divers searched for possible remains in a cove on the north side of the parkway.
