Serial killer on Long Island?

Suffolk County officials announced earlier today they have identified three women whose remains were found on Gilgo Beach last month.

Authorities identified the women as Maureen Brainard-Barnes, 25, of Norwich, Conn.; Melissa Barthelemy, 24, of Buffalo, N.Y.; and Amber Lynn Costello, 27, of North Babylon, N.Y. Investigators identified Megan Waterman, 22, of Scarborough, Maine, as the fourth woman whose remains were found in the same area on Dec. 13.

Some media outlets and blogs have incorrectly reported the women's remains were found on Fire Island, but Suffolk officials are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest in this case.
