State troopers prep for new search along Ocean Pkwy.

State troopers spent today marking off sections of the brush along Ocean Parkway in preparation for a new search Monday for more possible human remains

GILGO BEACH - State troopers spent today marking off sections of the brush along Ocean Parkway in preparation for a new search Monday for more possible human remains at the Nassau County line. Police, K-9 units, mounted officers and ladder trucks will be used during the search, which will cover Jones Beach. While Suffolk police wrapped up their latest sweep of the area along Ocean Parkway yesterday, they say their part of the search effort isn't over.Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said they haven't given up hope of finding missing New Jersey prostitute Shannan Gilbert, whose disappearance sparked the initial search last year. The New York Post reported today that Suffolk police may know who the killer is and are exploring a possible link to the killing of four prostitutes in Atlantic City in 2006. However, investigators tell News 12 Long Island the report is completely false.Residents in the area say they are concerned over allegations that a serial killer may have dumped the eight sets of human remains that have been found between Gilgo and Oak beaches since December. "It's very scary and it makes it much more creepy to come here by yourself," says Taylor Guercio, of Oak Beach.
