NEW YORK - FBI officials say they've found a Brooklyn man with ties to one of the four prostitutes whose bodies were found near Gilgo Beach in December, and they want to search his computer.
Authorities say Akeem Cruz is one of the last people to have seen 22-year-old Megan Waterman, of Maine, the weekend she disappeared after traveling to a hotel in Hauppauge to meet clients for sex.
In the court filing asking for permission to search the computer, FBI agents didn't mention the killings, but said they were seeking evidence of sex trafficking.
Cruz is currently jailed in Maine on an unrelated drug charge.
