Meanwhile, the FBI offered its assistance with the investigation by Suffolk County authorities, who suspect they may be dealing with a serial killer. Megan Waterman, who advertised her escort services on the online classifieds site Craigslist, last was seen in June at a Hauppauge, N. The hotel is about 15 miles from where the bodies were found this week.
Investigators are looking into the disappearance of both Waterman and a year-old Jersey City, N. Shannon Gilbert was working as a prostitute, authorities said, when she disappeared not far from where the bodies were found. Suffolk County police discovered the first body on Saturday and the other three on Monday while following up on a missing persons report for Gilbert.

Coletti said that he calledbut that the woman ran away and was nowhere to be found when police arrived. Because the bodies were each just off the highway and within a quarter-mile of each other, police suspect the deaths are connected. Family members became worried about Waterman after not hearing from her during a trip to New York in early June, her mother told The Associated Press.
Waterman always called three times a day to speak to her 4-year-old daughter, Liliana, but the last call came on the night of June 5, she said. Police were not searching along the Long Island highway, about 45 miles east of Manhattan, on Wednesday, but a spokeswoman said it was likely investigators would return there in the coming days.
Detectives believe the four were killed elsewhere and then taken to the site, a narrow strip of land that divides the Great South Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The four-lane parkway runs through the middle, connecting Jones Beach State Park with several state- and town-run beaches to its east.
