OAK BEACH, N.Y. (AP) — Searchers looking for more victims of a suspected serial killer along a remote New York beach have now found a total of eight sets of human remains.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer announced Monday that the remains of three more people had been found.

Five sets of remains were found previously along the highway that leads to Jones Beach, about 45 miles east of New York City.

A set of remains was found last week. Police have not positively connected that case to the bodies of four prostitutes found nearby in December.

Investigators have searched seven miles of dense undergrowth several times since the first discoveries.
