Skeletal remains of Shannan Gilbert found, police believe she died by accident

The body of Shannan Gilbert, whose disappearance led to the discovery of 10 apparent Long Island serial killer victims on a beach, has now been found. But police say they believe Gilbert died by accident and wasn’t another victim of the killer.

For a while over the summer, it seemed police couldn’t move on a particular stretech of Long Island beachfront without stumbling across yet another body. For a while, they apparently believed for a while that two separate killers were at work, before deciding it’s just one after all. Makes the Bay Harbor Butcher look like a pussycat…

Shannan Gilbert’s skeletal remains have finally been found in a swamp along Gilgo beach, and police believe she accidentally fell in and drowned. Which is pretty believable, even if it’s somewhat ironic that her death led to the discovery of an unrelated and as-yet-unsolved serial killer mystery.
