Atlantic County, New Jersey Prosecutor Will Reynolds has made definitive public comments about the Gilgo Beach Murders (Massapequa, Long Island, New York) and whether there is any connection to four murders that took place in 2006 on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.

Many have been speculating that perhaps there is a direct connection … due to similarities in the murders.

"Due to numerous inquiries and speculation from the media over the past several weeks, we feel it is appropriate to issue a statement regarding any connection. or lack thereof between the 2006 homicides occurring on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, NJ and the Gilgo Beach homicides,” said Reynolds.

"At this point in time, after ACPO detectives recently met with Suffolk County detectives to compare timelines, dates, methodologies, etc. of both cases, there does not seem to be a connection between the suspect in the Gilgo Beach case and the Atlantic County homicides from 2006,” said Reynolds.

Reynolds took this occasion to remind the public that the 2006 Atlantic County murders are not cold cases and that they open investigations as follows:

"The 2006 case remains an open joint investigation between ACPO and the Egg Harbor Township Police Department with continued assistance from our local, State, and Federal partners. Authorities will continue to follow all leads until the perpetrator of those crimes is brought to justice. Given the open nature of the investigation, there will be no further comment on this case in order to minimize the possibility of controlled information getting out into the public that could ultimately jeopardize the investigation,” said Reynolds.
