Police scouring a stretch of Jones Beach in Long Island for human remains and evidence of a possible serial killer discovered two teeth Friday.

The Nassau County police announced that the medical examiner will need to evaluate the teeth, which were found 12 to 18 inches from where a skull was found earlier this month in the same area.

The FBI, Suffolk and Nassau County police officials have been searching the thick brush along Ocean Parkway for remains since December when four bodies were found.

Police have identified the first four women as prostitutes but six other human remains have not been identified and police suspect a serial killer may be responsible for the killings.
