The bodies of four men were discovered at a park in Long Island Wednesday night in what police said was an apparent homicide.
The victims, who were not immediately identified, were found in a wooded area near a recreation center in Central Islip, east of New York City.
Their bodies were not skeletal remains, Meyers said.
Some Third-Party Apps Will Support Samsung's Bixby at Launch
Samsung has shifted away from the flat form factor for its flagships in its last two product launches. This is the reason why the batteries of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been reduced.
Suffolk County Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers tells Newsday that the victims, all male, "suffered significant trauma". Several blocks around the park were cordoned off.
Suffolk County police have not commented on whether the quadruple homicide in Central Islip is gang related as the investigation is now just beginning, CBS2's Magdalena Doris reported.
Investigators linked the murders to MS 13 gang members and arrested eight suspected gang members in March.
Petrol bomb sparks fire at Le Pen´s Paris campaign building
Emergency workers quelled the blaze at 62 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, not far from the Elysée Palace, at around 2.40am. A fire service spokesman said the fire was " quickly brought under control " and damaged only the door and a doormat.
Prosecutors said Kayla Cuevas, 16, was targeted last summer by a group of four gang members, including two juveniles because she had been feuding with MS-13 members at school and on social media.
The investigation into the deaths of Kayla Cuevas, 16, and Nisa Mickens, 15, on September 13, 2016, led to the discovery of the skeletal remains of three teenage boys in another section of Brentwood.
Five more MS-13 members were charged with racketeering, murder, attempted murder, assault, obstruction of justice, arson and other charges.
