The new head of the Suffolk County police homicide squad says he believes more than one killer is responsible for 10 bodies found on a Long Island beach.

Jack Fitzpatrick says he has been looking over the evidence in the Gilgo Beach case since taking over the job on March 1.

Former police commissioner Richard Dormer had said in December that believed the killings were the work of one person.

Police found the remains of eight women, a man and a toddler along Ocean Parkway. Police have identified five of the victims and say they worked as prostitutes.

District Attorney Thomas Spota has said he also believes more than one killer was involved.
