MANORVILLE - Suffolk police are out searching the wooded area of Manorville where skeletal remains were discovered last month. A man walking his dog stumbled upon the remains, which included a skull, back on Feb. 17. Police say they believe the bones had been there for at least five years. The latest remains were found just a few miles from where two other sets of remains were found in 2000 and 2003. Both of those cases were later linked to the Ocean Parkway murders. Police have not said if the newest discovery is also connected. They say nothing new in the case triggered today's search; they had just been waiting until they had enough resources available to conduct the operation.Police: Manorville remains dumped at least 5 years agoPolice: Human remains found in Manorville
