Gilgo Beach murders: Police ID a fifth victim

Police have identified remains found at Gilgo Beach as fifth missing prostitute Jessica Taylor.

In a breaking update to the Long Island serial killer case, police
announced today that more than one killed is apparently using Long
Island barrier beaches as a dumping ground for dead bodies.

Just today, police also identified some of the remains they found in March on the beaches near Gilgo Beach and Jones Beach.

Police identified remains found in March as body parts of Jessica Taylor, a missing prostitute.

In 2003, Taylor's body was found in Manorville, Long Island -- but
her head, hands and forearm were missing. It is those missing body parts
that police found on March 29 on Ocean Parkway.

DNA linked the two sets of remains together.

Taylor worked as a prostitute in Washington, D.C. and Manhattan.

And that's not all.

Police said the remains of a toddler found in the area has been identified as a
female, 18 to 24 months old. She was wrapped in a blanket, said police, and they do not know yet if she was a homicide victim.

And a male body has been found at the scene. The body of an Asian
male in his late teens or early 20s was also found on April 4 in the
same area. He was killed, said police, but police said his killing was
"radically different" and think not one but two killer are using the
Long Island barrier beaches as a dumping ground.

"It is clear that the area in and
around Gilgo Beach has been used to discard human remains for some
period of time," said Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota in a statement. "As distasteful and
disturbing as that is, there is no evidence that all of these remains
are the work of a single killer."

Up to ten sets of human remains have been found in total on the beaches.
