    Police say they've seen an increase in calls after releasing new information in the Long Island serial killer investigation.      

    The remains of 10 people were found strewn along a remote beach parkway and elsewhere across Long Island.      

    A Suffolk County police spokeswoman says 22 tips have been received since Tuesday. That's when detectives released sketches of two of the unidentified victims.      

    Police have identified only five of the 10 victims. Those five were all women working as escorts.      

    Among the unidentified victims are a toddler and a woman believed to be her mother. Their remains were found seven miles apart.      

    Body parts have been found in four separate locations. The oldest remains are linked to a case 15 years ago.

    No suspects have been identified. There's a $25,000 reward.
