Long Island Dead Bodies Reward Raised to $25,000
Way too many bodies have been found since December along the Jones Beach, Gilgo Beach and Ocean Parkway area of Suffolk County, Long Island. The four identified so far -- Amber Lynn Costello, Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes and Melissa Barthelemy -- are thought to be the work of a Long Island serial killer, though the additional discoveries, including four bodies and remains from two possible others, are equally worrisome. Today, the Suffolk County Crime Stoppers raised the reward for information leading to an arrest from $5,000 to $25,000, the largest reward ever in the area, according to CBS New York. No suspects have been named. Info should go to 1-800-220 TIPS or via text (use "SCPD") to CRIMES (274637) or visit tipsubmit.com. [CBS NY]
