Search for missing woman yields four corpses at Long Island beach

Police searching for a missing prostitute in the underbrush on Ocean Parkway in Babylon have yielded a shocking discovery that creates more questions than answers, as four bodies were discovered in the searched area.

Babylon (incidentally my hometown, and where I currently live) has several barrier beaches, and the gruesome find was uncovered close to popular summer spot Oak Beach. Law enforcement officials were searching for a 24-year-old woman named Shonnon Gilbert of Jersey City, who was last known to be in the area after purportedly meeting with someone she’d met on Craigslist. Gilbert’s body is said to be one of the four located, and all the “badly decomposed” corpses seem to have been ditched from a moving vehicle on Ocean Parkway.

Initial evidence has indicated the victims were likely killed elsewhere, and Captain Obvious Police Commissioner Richard Dormer of the Suffolk Police says officials believe there may be a serial killer on the loose. All four bodies were found within 1000 feet of one another, and Dormer said the search for evidence or further bodies is ongoing:

“We’re going to continue to search in this area to find out if there’s any more evidence, forensics, that kind of thing, and if there’s possibly more bodies,” Dormer said.

Police have also said that one of the bodies could be that of missing Maine resident Megan Waterford, last known to have been seen at a Hauppauge Holiday Inn.
