Police to search water in NY beach probe

Police divers plan to search an inlet along a New York beach highway where 10 sets of human remains have been found.

The discoveries have been made during a search for victims of a possible serial killer.

Newsday says divers will concentrate on Hemlock Cove on Wednesday.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer is planning an afternoon media briefing on the investigation.

On Tuesday, police in neighboring Nassau County confirmed that two sets of remains found this week were human.

The findings come after police in Suffolk uncovered eight sets of human remains since December along the same highway.

Authorities haven't linked all the remains found in the past five months to the same suspect. However, they theorize that the first four bodies could be victims of a serial killer.
