Police: Female body found by jogger in Manorville

MANORVILLE - Police say a female body was found by a jogger yesterday at Manorville Hills County Park. During a press conference this afternoon, police did not comment on the identity or a possible cause of death, pending the medical examiner's results. Police did say that the human remains found about a month ago in Manorville on North Street were that of a male. Detective Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick said the full skeleton remains appeared to have been there for a minimum of five years. A medical examiner is determining a cause of death in that case.Fitzpatrick would not comment on whether or not the cases seemed to be criminal. He said nothing indicates a link to the Gilgo Beach murders. A woman's unidentified remains were found near a sump back in 2000. The remains of two men were also discovered in 2000 and 2003.

In 2003, the torso of Jessica Taylor was found in Manorville. Police say Taylor's hands and skull were later found at Gilgo Beach. To watch the full police news conference on the remains in Manorville, go to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select the 'iO Extra' tab.
