A man arrest who is suspected of killing at least 10 people around Long Island’s Gilgo Beach. The suspect, James Burke, was arrested on July 12, 2023, after a 13-year investigation.
The victims in the case were all young women and men who were working as sex workers. They were found dead in remote areas near Gilgo Beach, between 2000 and 2010. The case became known as the “Gilgo Four” murders, after four of the victims were found together in burlap bags.
Burke was a former Suffolk County police officer. He was arrested on charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and evidence tampering. He is currently being held without bail.
The arrest of Burke is a major development in the case. It is hoped that he will be able to provide answers to the families of the victims and bring closure to this tragic case.
Here are some additional details about the case:
* The victims were all found in different locations, but all of the bodies were found within a 10-mile radius of Gilgo Beach.
* The victims were all strangled or suffocated.
* Some of the victims were dismembered.
* The investigation into the case was hampered by the fact that the victims were all sex workers and their disappearances were not initially investigated as homicides.
The arrest of Burke is a significant step forward in the case, but it is still not clear if he is responsible for all of the murders. The investigation is ongoing, and more charges may be filed against Burke in the future.
