Serial killer litters bodies on beach

WHEN four bodies were found last December strewn along a remote barrier beach south of New York's Long Island, police figured they were dealing with a serial killer. When the remains of six others were uncovered later, they widened the possibility to multiple killers using the same dumping ground.

On Wednesday, the Suffolk County police commissioner told The Associated Press in an interview that detectives now think one person is probably responsible for all 10 deaths dating back to 1996.

But the veteran police official, who retires at the end of the year, isn't betting the ranch that he's right.

"Looking at the common denominators involved with the dumping ground, the type of victims, the dismemberments, all on Long Island. Our theory is that it's probably one serial killer," Richard Dormer said in an interview in his office.

"Other people may have a different theory, within the department and within the profession, the police business. I'm sure you could talk to people that have a different theory, but we're leaning toward that now because of the common denominators involved."
