In split with police, prosecutor discounts lone killer theory in beach remains case
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (AP) ' In a split with police, a New York prosecutor says he isn't convinced that one killer is responsible for 10 bodies discovered along a seaside parkway.
Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota (SPOH'-tah) told county legislators Thursday that he disagrees with Police Commissioner Richard Dormer's theory that a serial killer dumped all 10 corpses near Long Island's Gilgo Beach.
Spota says one male victim had a different manner of death.
Dormer has said he believes that all the victims were linked to the sex trade, but the district attorney says investigators know little about one set of remains.
Spota was testifying at a hearing of the county legislature's public safety committee.
Dormer stuck by the serial killer theory in his earlier testimony before the panel.
