In the hopes of capturing the Long Island serial killer, cops have released sketches of two of the victims who remain unidentified and images of jewelry worn by two others.
Investigators are hopeful that the new clues will help unearth new information in the 9-month old case.
“We are asking for the public’s assistance and we’re asking investigators across the country to study the provided details and if they’re related to one of their open cases,” Suffolk County Police Commisoner, Richard Dormer said, adding there’s a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
One of the sketches is of a 5-foot-6 Asian man aged between 17 and 23 years old. His body was discovered on April 4, with two missing incisors and two missing molars. Cops have revealed that the male victim was found wearing women’s clothes and may have worked as a prostitute.
The man is believed to have been killed five to 10 years ago and he may have died as a result of blunt force trauma.

The second image is that of a female victim known as Jane Doe No. 6. She was around 5-foot-2 and between 18 and 35 years of age. Her body parts were dumped separately. Her torso was discovered in Manorville in 2000 and her head, hands and right foot were found along Ocean Parkway on April 4.
Suffolk County Police Commissioner, Richard Dormer said it is likely she worked as prostitute.
“Based on what we know of some of the other victims, we consider that this woman may have been working as a prostitute in New York City at that time,” he said.
Police have also released stills of gold jewelry worn by another unidentified female victim and her baby girl. The mother was found wearing two bracelets, one with an X and O charms and the other had fake diamond stones. The body of the woman was discovered close to Jones beach in Nassau County on April 11. The remains of her daughter were discovered seven miles away at Gilgo Beach on April 4.
“Although we can not definitively say, it is likely that these two individuals are likely mother and daughter,” said Dormer.
Of the ten corpses discovered, five have been identified. Death certificates sent to the victim’s families say all the women were strangled.
