'Headless' body washes up 100 miles from 'Craigslist ripper' scene and Just 3 miles from Sir Paul McCartney's House - 23rd May 2011

A 'headless' body has washed up on a Long Island beach 100 miles from where the decomposed remains of 10 prostitutes were found along a highway.

The body was discovered on Sunday by a beach walker on Hamptons beach - just three miles from a house owned by Sir Paul McCartney.

The body is east of Gilgo Beach, the area where at least one serial killer in the 'Craigslist Ripper' case is thought to have buried at least 10 corpses in thick undergrowth at the side of a road.

Newsday reported police saying that the body wasin a 'poor state of decomposition' on Albert's Landing in Amagansett.

Police Chief Ed Ecker said investigators did not yet know the gender of the corpse.

Up to 13 prostitutes have been murdered in Long Island and Atlantic City – now police believe two more murders may be connected to the killings, including a mother of three whose dissected body was found in a suitcase.

The dismembered body of 39-year-old Tanya Rush, a prostitute from East New York, was found in Bellmore in June 2008.

This case, along with another that the police are refusing to identify, is being reviewed, according to the New York Post.

If they are connected, it would bring the total number of killings in the so-called 'Craigslist Ripper' case to 15. Read More
