Authorities began discovering the remains of 11 human beings five years ago along a New York highway.
Now the FBI is joining the investigation to determine if a serial killer was responsible for the deaths, Fox News reports.
Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Tim Simi announced the FBI’s involvement in the case Thursday, on the eve of the fifth-anniversary of the first body being discovered.
“Law enforcement techniques, particularly with homicide investigations, are ever changing, and we wanted to ensure that we are doing everything we can to solve these murders,” Sini said.
“Bringing the FBI to the table with all of its expertise and resources is a step in the right direction,” toward possibly finding a killer, Sini said. “Working together is the best way to solve complex cases.”
The bodies included eight women, a man and a toddler. They were found near Ocean Parkway on Long Island.
