WANTAGH, N.Y. — State police say investigators looking for evidence of a serial killer have found bones at New York’s Jones Beach State Park, but it’s unclear if they’re from a human.

The bones will be evaluated by a medical examiner.

About 125 searchers, some with dogs and others on horseback, scoured a new section of Long Island on Monday.

The new search area is along Ocean Parkway in Nassau County. Officers in neighboring Suffolk County to the east uncovered eight sets of human remains in recent months.

The area is thick with underbrush, creating difficult conditions.

A New Jersey woman who was the initial focus of the search is still missing.

Authorities believe the deaths may be the work of a serial killer. No suspect has been identified. printed on August 22, 2017
