The site where Peaches' extremities were found

On April 11th, 2011, the police discovered the arms and legs of an unidentified woman at this site in Jones Beach State Park.

DNA tests confirmed that the remains belonged to a woman whose torso had been dumped at Hempstead Lake State Park in June 1997.

The victim was nicknamed "Peaches" because she had a tattoo of a peach on her left breast.

Peaches is believed to be the second victim of the Long Island serial killer.

This site is just 3.7 miles west of the area where the authorities uncovered the remains of the Gilgo Four.

The authorities believe that Peaches was an African-American or mixed-race woman who was between the ages of 16 and 30.

Notably, she also had an infant daughter called "Baby Doe", whose remains were discovered by a search team near Overlook Beach on April 4th, 2011.

After dumping Peaches' torso at Hempstead Lake State Park, the killer put her extremities into a plastic bag and threw them into this section of the thicket beside Ocean Parkway. He then deposited the remains of "Baby Doe" further east.

This means that he went to the effort of using three separate dump sites following the murder. It is also possible that he used a fourth site, as Peaches' skull has never been recovered.
