MANORVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Another human skeleton has turned up in a wooded area on the eastern end of Long Island, near where the remains of two men were discovered in 2000 and 2003.

Suffolk County Police say a man running with his dogs discovered the bones in Manorville at around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The area has been used as a dumping ground before.

The remains of two men were discovered in the same wooded area in 2000 and 2003. They remain unidentified.

Police say the new skeleton appears to have been there about five years. An anthropologist is being brought in to examine the remains.

Manorville was also the place where someone dumped pieces of two dismembered women, whose heads were later discovered many miles away, along with eight other corpses, beside a long stretch of beach highway.
