Police To Rely On Science In L.I. Bodies Case

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. (WCBS 880) – Police say science will lead investigators to solve the case of a possible serial killer on Long Island.

Suffolk County medical examiner Yvonne Milewski says time and testing of the four bodies found will be what cracks the case.

"And depending on the scientific condition it could take away from that time and also add to it. So we'll just have to wait and see and let the scientist do their job," Milewski said.

Police Commissioner Richard Dormer agrees, saying science and police work will catch this killer.

"We let the scientist do their thing and then we work from there," he said.

Police found four bodies along a desolate, lonely, wind-swept stretch of Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.

But despite the gruesome find, Dormer said residents should not be worried.

"I don't want anybody to think that we have a Jack the Ripper running around Suffolk County with blood dripping from a knife, which might be the impression that some people may get. It's not that type of situation," he said.
