Gilgo Beach Murder Victim Featured in New Video Released by Long Island Police Department

Long Island officials on Tuesday publicly stepped up efforts to apprehend the elusive Gilgo Beach serial killer, who is suspected of murdering at least 10 people more than a decade ago.

Suffolk County Police released surveillance footage of victim Megan Waterman inside a Hauppauge Holiday Inn Express in June 2010 – the last time it was known she was seen alive.

The remains of the Craigslist escort were found on Ocean Parkway six months later, police said.

Authorities also increased the reward for information leading to the killer’s arrest from $25,000 to $50,000.

The announcement came two months after new police commissioner Rodney Harrison announced a task force would be tasked with solving the cold case.

The bodies of eight women, a man and a female infant were found scattered along the coastal border of Nassau and Suffolk counties in 2010 and 2011. More than half of the victims worked as prostitutes, officials said.

“I believe this case is solvable and that identifying the person or persons responsible for these murders is a top priority,” Harrison said at the time.

In 2020, police released images of a belt tied to the suspect with the initials “HM” or “WH” embossed on it.
