Long Island Police May Have Found Shannan Gilbert’s Body

Long Island police said Tuesday they had found remains they believe to be those of Shannan Gilbert, the New Jersey woman whose disappearance sparked the search for a serial killer in the area. Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said they will not know for sure if the remains are Gilbert’s until it is confirmed by a medical examiner. Gilbert’s mother, Mari, said she is not convinced the body is her daughter's, and added that if the remains are not Shannan's, then “we have another victim.” Although Gilbert’s disappearance on Oak Beach, Long Island, led police to believe the case involved a serial killer, they no longer believe the case is related to 10 other victims, five of whom have been identified.
