Police investigating the 10 sets of human remains found on a Long Island barrier beach highway have linked one of the bodies to remains found on Fire Island in 1996, Suffolk County detectives said Tuesday.

Officers have found 10 sets of human remains on a stretch of beach in Long Island and believe there may be more than one killer could be responsible.

Police have also released sketches of two of the unidentified victims, hoping people with more information will come forward.

Detectives said they've received more than 1,200 tips since bodies were first discovered in December 2010.

Below are sketches of two of the unidentified victims.
