The FBI recovered what investigators believe to be human remains from a wooded area in the Village of Babylon on Thursday, authorities said.

Few details were immediately available, but the FBI Long Island Gang Task Force’s involvement suggested the case involves a street gang, potentially MS-13, which federal authorities have identified as their biggest priority.

“We don’t have further information to release at this time,” said an FBI spokeswoman who confirmed the recovery effort, which has concluded.

Suffolk County police referred requests for comment to the FBI. Suffolk Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron told News 12 Long Island that investigators have been searching for a suspected victim of MS-13 violence in the area.

The discovery was made off Ralph Avenue, north of Argyle Lake.
