Four bodies were found at Long Island's Oak Beach, including one thought to be that of Shannan Gilbert, a 24-year-old prostitute who disappeared in May. Authorities believe the same person—or "team of people"—is responsible for all four.
The first of the four—the one that may be Gilbert—was discovered by a police officer running a training exercise with his dog. The bodies were all located in the space of a quarter mile, each about 500 feet from the next, and two wrapped in burlap sacks. Of the last three, only one has been identified as a woman at all: The other two are in such advanced stages of decomposition that their genders weren't immediately apparent.
