GILGO BEACH - Sources say investigators are questioning if the murders of two other prostitutes could be linked to the Ocean Parkway bodies case.

The New York Post says police are reviewing the death of 39-year-old Tanya Rush, of Brooklyn. The mother of three was found dismembered in a suitcase along the Southern State Parkway in Bellmore in 2008.

The paper says investigators are looking at the Rush murder and another unidentified case for possible links.

Suffolk police told News 12 Long Island that they are reviewing homicide cases throughout the country that have similar characteristics to the Gilgo Beach case.
