ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (CBS) — Five years ago today, authorities down the shore came upon the bodies of four murdered Atlantic City prostitutes. Officials marked the occasion Sunday by issuing a press release, insisting they’re still on the hunt for whoever was responsible.

Barbara Breidor, Molly Dilts, Kim Raffo and Tracy Roberts were found on November 20th, 2006, lined up in a drainage ditch behind the Golden Key Motel along the Black Horse Pike near Atlantic City.

Prosecutor Ted Housel assigned additional investigators to the case a couple of years ago, and various state and federal resources have been tapped. But there is no indication that they’re any closer to tracking down the killer. A handyman who was suspected early on is no longer on their radar.

There were also suggestions this case might be tied to a string of similar slayings on Long Island, but that was later ruled out. Housel insists the Atlantic City case is still an “active and open investigation.”
