Jessica Taylor: Gilgo Beach crime scene

On March 29th, 2011, a police search team discovered a woman's skull, hands, and forearm at this section of Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.

DNA tests proved that the remains belonged to a sex worker named Jessica Taylor, whose naked torso had been dumped in Manorville eight years previously.

Taylor is believed to be a victim of the Long Island serial killer (LISK).

The 20-year-old disappeared in July 2003. The police said that she was last seen working near the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan between July 18th and July 21st.

When Taylor's torso was found in Manorville, her family initially suspected that she may have been murdered by her pimp. However, that belief was shattered when the rest of her identifying remains were discovered in these bushes off Ocean Parkway—less than one mile away from the Gilgo Four.

In Taylor's case, it seems as though the killer went to great lengths to hinder her identification. Not only did he dismember her body and dump her remains in two different places, he also attempted to remove a tattoo from her torso.

The discovery of her skull at this location proved that the killer had been operating in both Manorville and Gilgo Beach.
