Gilgo Beach Doe, locally known as "John Doe #8" or "Asian Male" was a possible victim of the Long Island Serial Killer. The victim's gender is unknown, as the remains were found in women's clothing.

It is theorized that the victim may have been killed when their biological sex was discovered by the assailant, if they were a sex worker. The connection to the nine other victims discovered in the same region is debated, based on differences in cause of death, sex assigned at birth, and that these remains had not been dismembered.

Characteristics

  • Hair and eye color could not be determined.
  • May have suffered from a musculoskeletal condition that affected their gait.

Media

  • The victim’s case was detailed on the documentary series The Killing Season, which covered the Long Island Serial Killer.
