CENTRAL ISLIP - A woman's body was found in the woods in Central Islip this morning.Police say the body was found in the wooded area along Pinewood Avenue, just five feet from the road. They say a passerby found the body at about 7:30 a.m. today.Neighbors say this is an ugly reminder of a double murder that happened on the same block just last year. In February 2011, police say an MS-13 gang member fatally shot a 19-year-old mother and her 2-year-old son as part of a revenge plot. Their bodies were discovered in the same woods that detectives searched today.Investigators urge anyone with information to come forward.
