    I wonder if this is another Craigs List victim. Only 20 miles from Jones Beach.

    It's not terribly far away from Brooklyn or New York City, either. Or Long Island, for that matter

    That necklace is so pretty!

    This probably wasn't a robbery gone wrong, I wonder what happened?

    The article stated that the body could have been left for dead up to 5 years ago. I wonder then, if these are synthetic opals in the necklace and ring, not only because it has that particular look in the opal cabochons, but if it were a natural opal, I would think it would have had a chance to craze or crack being left out in the elements. Because opals are susceptible to heat/ cold changes, it can craze.
    If it is a natural opal, say a doublet, then I am not sure because the quartz top can protect it.
    Usually, an opal ring is not worn on a daily basis, as if a person washes their hands, it can crack from the water change, or if you knock your ring on something by chance, the opal can crack.
    So,if it is a natural opal, maybe this UID has not been there that long, and if it is a synthetic opal, it is possible that opal can withstand the elements better, so this UID could have been there for years.

    That sure looks like a match on all 3 pieces of jewelry that Pan Sum Kim is wearing in that photo.
