A dead woman’s body washed ashore on Gilgo Beach on Monday night, Suffolk County police said.
People walking on the oceanfront beach called 911 after making the discovery at around 9:30 p.m., according to a police spokeswoman.
Homicide Squad detectives do not believe the woman is connected to unsolved serial murders of four women found on the bay side of Gilgo in December 2010, the spokeswoman said.
The remains were taken to the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine the woman’s cause of death and identity.
Police also said it’s also too early to tell if the body is that of a Queens woman who was reported missing from the same area three months ago.
