FREEPORT, N.Y. (AP) — The FBI says its gang task force has found apparent human remains in a Long Island park nearly a week after the body of a 16-year-old boy was found in a neighboring community.
FBI spokeswoman Amy Thoreson says the suspected remains were found Wednesday morning in Cow Meadow Park & Preserve in Freeport.
Authorities have not commented on whether either case is linked to the MS-13 street gang, which is blamed for 22 killings on Long Island since January 2016.
On Oct. 19, investigators acting on a tip from federal Homeland Security Investigations discovered the body of 16-year-old Angel Soler in woodlands in Roosevelt. He had been reported missing in July.
