'Eyewitness to Gilgo Beach' is a documentary series about the serial killings and the arrest of Rex Heuermann
LONG ISLAND, New York (WABC) -- "2011 was the most active period of this investigation. That's when it seems like every few months, more remains is being found," recalled Eyewitness News investigative reporter Kristin Thorne, who took over Gilgo coverage when she was stationed on Long Island.
Investigators continued to find more bodies, but the remains differed from those of the "Gilgo Four".
Police found three more victims in the area between Oak Beach and Gilgo Beach, bringing the total count of victims to eight.
Investigators identified the victims as Jane Doe Number 6, a baby girl and an Asian man.
Investigators then say they believe they are looking for three, if not four, killers. One killer who they believe is responsible for the "Gilgo Four," one responsible for Jane Doe 5 and Jane Doe 6, and one or two separate killers responsible for the four other bodies found.
"This is around the time that it got complicated to tell this story," reporter Josh Einiger recalled.
