LONG ISLAND (PIX11) – Nassau County Police on Long Island are trying to identify a set of human remains that were discovered in the upscale area of Lattingtown.

Police say on Monday, January 21st, a woman was walking her dog along the beach at the end of Sheep Lane when she made the gruesome discovery and called police.


The remains are believed to be from a woman in her twenties.  Cops say there was a necklace found with the remains of a gold pig, and are now hoping someone may recognize the necklace and help them identify the woman.

Pig necklace is key clue to identify mystery skeleton found on Long Island beachThe area the remains were found in are thirty miles north of Oak and Gilgo Beach where in May of 2010 ten bodies were found, eight of them women.  In those cases, police suspect at least one serial killer dumped the bodies.   While that case remains unsolved, police this morning would not comment if they believe there to be any connection between those murders and this one.

Wednesday morning police told PIX11 they would be searching the database of missing people to see if any match up with the description of this woman.

They would not comment if they believe this was an isolated case, or if they will now search the North Shores of Long Island for any more potential bodies.

Anyone with information that help investigators is urged to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS or the Homicide Squad at 516-573-7789.

    Necklace found with the remains of a gold pig? You mean with the remains,investigators found a necklace with a gold pig?
    Journalism. They get paid for this?

      Ha! First thing I thought as soon as I started reading! Was just getting ready to post my own comment about the quality (or lack thereof) in journalism these days, when I saw your post. How much do they get paid? I could do with a career change!

    The Gilgo Beach homicides immediately came to mind. I wonder if that suspect has started up again or if these remains are 2-3 years old and just now being found.

    I believe anonymous 3:21, 3:53, and 4:17 should stop replying to post’s and go back to school. Dan stated that – there was a necklace found with the remains of a gold pig, not – Necklace found with the remains of a gold pig. Learn to read and comprehend before throwing stones.

      Are you kidding me? Post's? And how does 'there was a' make any difference? They are referring to the fact that this sentence is grammatically flawed. It indicates that the gold pig is the 'remains' in question, and that a necklace was found with it. YOU need to learn how to write before you try and tell someone else to learn how to write. Unreal.

    I had absolutely no problem reading and understanding what the Journalist had to say.
    But really, gramatical errors is all you are getting from this article?

    • Tarita

      I understand what you mean that there is more to get from this article, and I also understood what the writer actually meant. Having said that, someone in the profession of journalism should, at the very least, have a basic understanding of grammar, and use that understanding when writing a simple new article.

    I hope they will be able to identify the woman. As a chiropractor in Long Beach, I treat conditions directly related to the spine or skeletal system. The remains of the woman is important to detect what she has suffered from.

  • Mike

    Was the woman already identified? For sure, her family and relatives are worried about her. Considering the time, this case must already be solved.

  • Brett

    The news is very alarming! I hope that cop will soon find the murderer. it seems like Long Island Beach is not a safe place to stay with and there would really be a great impact on it's tourism economy.

  • Tony

    I really feel sad for what had happened to the woman. She was believed to be in her 20s. She has died young. For sure, her family is missing her a lot. But looking at the bright side, she is now with our Creator.May her soul rest in peace.
