Police say the remains that were found Tuesday don't belong to Shannan Gilbert, a New Jersey prostitute who went missing last May. According to investigators, Gilbert was last seen leaving the Oak Beach home of her client, Joseph Brewer, screaming. Brewer, of West Islip, has been questioned, but he's not a suspect.The medical examiner is currently trying to determine who the fifth victim is.
