Cops Seek ID of Woman Whose Bones Were Found on Long Island

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman whose bones were found on Long Island earlier this year.

The woman’s remains were found on March 22 on the Greenway Bicycle Path in East Setauket.

Authorities said the remains had likely been there for about a year.

Suffolk County police say a hiker discovered the skeletal remains after observing deer gathered at the spot. They say the remains were about 20 feet off the path and were not visible from the trail.

The woman is believed to have been between 30 to 50 years old and between 5’3” and 5’9”.

Suffolk police were also seeking to ID a man whose body was found in a wooded area in East Patchogue last month. His body was found in a beige Kelty tent northeast of Swan Lake Drive and Franklin Street on July 30. 

The man's cause of death was ruled non-criminal. He was about 5'5" to 5'6" and had a thin build. He's believed to be between 45 and 60 years old.

Police say he was living there for about a year and was often seen biking in the area wearing a red bandana.

Anyone with information on either case is asked to call detectives at 631-852-6392 or Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
