Excerpt from May 5, 2011 Public Safety Committee of Suffolk County Legislature:
Chief Varrone: We had made up our minds that we were going to expand the search after the snow-melt and prior to the growing of the foliage in the spring, which we did. And that, of course, resulted in a find on March 29th by a Marine Bureau Officer who happened to be -- after we had done another extensive search in the Oakdale area -- again, we're still looking for Shannon Gilbert -- he's driving along Ocean Parkway towards the end of our search on that particular day and something catches his attention on the side of the road.(BBM)
Is this a Varrone misspeak? Or a typo by the court stenographer who took the minutes and it was supposed to be Oak Beach?
Or is this a whole new piece of information?
Nice catch! IMO... typo or mistake on Varrone's part. But, with this case, who the heck knows?!
