A man ice skating on the Forge River in Moriches on January 25, 2003 discovered a severed head embedded in the frozen pond. The following year, on April 10, 2004, a landscaper
cleaning the property of a newly constructed home in Moriches, approximately ¾ of a mile from the Forge River, found a set of partial remains in a wooded area adjacent
to the property. These remains were linked through DNA analysis to the head found in the Forge River. Further DNA analysis linked the head and the partial remains to a
partial torso discovered in Far Rockaway on December 17, 2002. Suffolk County Homicide detectives identified the remains as Andre Isaac who went missing from his
residence in East New York shortly before Thanksgiving 2003.
