Police: 7 Bodies Found at Serial Killer Dumping Ground Since 2007
Four more bodies have been found at a serial killer’s dumping ground in Connecticut, authorities say.
The four bodies were found in a wooded area behind a New Britain shopping plaza, the same place where three other bodies were discovered back in 2007.
Four of the seven victims have been identified. The remains found in 2007 were identified as 53-year-old Diane Cusack, 23-year-old Joyvaline Martinez and 40-year-old Mary Jane Menard. Melanie Ruth Camilini is the latest victim to be identified. Authorities announced that her remains had been identified on the same day that she would have turned 42.
All seven victims disappeared more than a decade ago.
Authorities have not yet named a suspect in the murders, but reports say the suspect is already behind bars on unrelated charges.
The investigation into the skeletal remains began on August 20, 2007 when a local resident reported finding a body in the woods. He was scouting for hunting locations in the wooded area behind 593 Hartford Rd. in New Britain. There are 15 acres of wooded, swampy area behind a shopping mall on Hartford Road.
After the report was made to police, they began a ground search of the area and found remains from three bodies, later identified as Diane Cusack, Joyvaline Martinez and Mary Jane Menard.
