(Newser) – Nassau County police are looking into the possibility that a body found buried near a suburban shoreline may have been another victim of the infamous Gilgo Beach serial killer, the New York Post reports. "Obviously, we're near the water, [Gilgo] bodies were found near the water—that's a similarity," a homicide detective told the press Tuesday, "but there are other dissimilarities so it’s much too early to say that we definitely have a connection."

A woman walking her dog stumbled on the skeletal remains on Monday, according to CBS News. The bones were inside a bag, but police on Tuesday refused to say if it was a plastic bag of the kind the Gilgo killer's victims were found in. The remains belong to a woman believed to have been 20-30, who was wearing a gold chain with a golden pig pendant. She died of "trauma" police said, without elaborating.
