SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y. (WTVR) -- Authorities in New York have announced new developments in connection with a suspected serial killer on Long Island.
Commissioner Geraldine Hart, along with the Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini, announced the three new developments on Thursday in the nearly 10-year-old cases.
At least 10 bodies were discovered in the underbrush at various points along a three-mile stretch of Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach, in 2010 and 2011.
The first development announced on Thursday was a piece of physical evidence from one of the crime scenes where bodies were found.
“A black leather belt,” Hart said, describing the evidence, “embossed with the letters 'HM' or 'WH' was recovered during the initial stages of the investigation.”
“We believe the belt was handled by the suspect,” the commissioner continued, “and did not belong to any of the victims.”
