Suffolk County Police have identified the partial remains of a woman who was found along Ocean Parkway on Long Island almost a decade ago.

They discovered the remains while they searched for a different missing woman who was last seen near Gilgo Beach. 

The remains identified Friday are of Valerie Mack. Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart says she worked as an escort in Pennsylvania before she died.

A college student wanted in connection with two killings in Connecticut was taken into custody when he walked out of a wooded area and surrendered peacefully in Maryland after six days on the run, police said Thursday.

Peter Manfredonia, 23, a University of Connecticut senior, declined to fight extradition back to Connecticut during a brief court hearing Thursday conducted by video. It remained unclear how long he will stay detained in Maryland.
