Update: Have THREE serial killers dumped remains in Long Island? New 'Craigs list ripper' police theory as body count reaches 10 - 14th Apr 2011

Up to three serial killers could have used the same Long Island beach front to dump the remains of their victims, it emerged today.

The new theory comes after police revealed the bodies of a man and a toddler are among the 10 sets of remains discovered so far, leading investigators to question whether a second serial killer may have also recently used the same remote spot.

Police in the 'Craigslist ripper' enquiry are also looking in to the possibility the remains of a skull and torso found on Monday may belong to undiscovered victims of notorious serial killer Joel Rifkin.

Rifkin, 52, admitted to Police in 1993 he had killed 17 New York prostitutes before dumping their strangled and dismembered remains up state and on Long Island. Three of the bodies were never located.

Speaking to the New York Post about the bones found on Monday, a source close to the investigation said: 'These [bones] are so old that roots were growing around the vertebrae and the skull.'

'These could be one or two of Joel Rifkin's victims who were never found, or the work of another killer.'

The original investigation in December last year was prompted by the disappearance of 24-year-old prostitute Shannan Gilbert.

Investigators uncovered the bodies of Melissa Barthelemy, 24, Amber Lynn Costello, 27, Megan Waterman, 22, and Maureen Brainer-Barnes, 25, near Oak and Gilgo Beachs on the eastern end of the island. Read More
