Suffolk County police are investigating the discovery of another set of human skeletal remains that were found in Brentwood less than a week after a similar find was made nearby, authorities said.
Few details were available about the latest discovery. The person’s identity, cause and manner of death were not immediately known. It is unclear if the two discoveries are related to each other or to the recent double murder of two teenage girls in Brentwood—a case that investigators suspect has gang ties.
The latest discovery came after the remains of an unidentified person were found in a wooded area west of Emjay Boulevard and north of the Long Island Rail Road tracks in Brentwood, police have said.
Those remains were taken to the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office, where an autopsy will be performed to determine the person’s cause of death and identity.
Homicide Squad detectives ask anyone with information on these cases to call them at 631-852-6392 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
