OAK BEACH - ? Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer announced today that investigators believe they have located the remains of missing New Jersey woman Shannan Gilbert. Dormer says the remains were found this morning in Oak Beach about a quarter of a mile northeast of where her purse, shoes, lip gloss and jeans were located last week. Investigators theorize that Gilbert ran through the marsh and headed back toward the lights on Ocean Parkway. Dormer says homicide squad members located the remains while on an amphibious machine in the thick brush. The remains were located on the surface. Investigators say the area where the remains were found is impossible for anyone to navigate through. The remains are being examined by the medical examiner's office for identification and a cause of death.
