MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. – Police in New York’s Long Island have arrested a suspect Friday in the Gilgo Beach serial killer case, Fox News has confirmed.

The suspect’s identity has not yet been publicly revealed. The individual is expected to appear in court in Riverhead, N.Y. later today.

Fox News can confirm that the large police presence in Massapequa Park is connected to the Gilgo Beach developments. The law enforcement activity has drawn neighbors out of their homes in the suburban village, despite rainy weather in the area Friday morning.

In 2010 and 2011, New York authorities discovered 11 sets of human remains strewn along a suburban Long Island beach highway. Those who have been identified are Shannan Gilbert, Melissa Barthelemy, Amber Costello, Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Jessica Taylor and Valerie Mack.
