Nassau County police are investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains with a necklace in Lattingtown this week.

Police said a woman walking her dog in the sand at the end of Sheep Lane, which overlooks the Long Island Sound, made the discovery at 3 p.m. Monday.

Investigators believe the remains to be those of a woman between 20 and 30 years old.  Police released photos of a gold necklace with a pig pendant that was recovered at the scene in the hopes of identifying the woman.

Pigs symbolize luck in some cultures. Police are planning a news conference Wednesday afternoon to discuss the case.

Homicide Squad detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone who recognizes the necklace or has any information to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS or the Homicide Squad at 573-7789.  All callers will remain anonymous.
