Babylon - A New York police chief says investigators are considering the possibility that a serial killer may have dumped four bodies that were found recently along the same half kilometre stretch of road.

Suffolk County police Commissioner Richard Dormer says three bodies and a set of skeletal remains were discovered along a road on Long Island's Oak Beach.

They were found on Saturday and Monday as police were investigating a missing person report on nearby Fire Island.

Dormer says 24-year-old Shonnan Gilbert of Jersey City, New Jersey, was last seen on May 1.
