HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police on Long Island were looking Friday evening for a possible connection following the discovery of body parts in three different locations.
Detectives were back on the scene Friday after a severed arm was found in the yard of a Hempstead home on Stewart Avenue, just blocks away from where another arm was found by a resident on Webb Avenue earlier in the week.
“Who would do something like that? I still couldn’t believe it,” neighbor Adrian Boyd said Friday. “I’m still weirded out.”
“I was startled, I was shocked,” neighbor John McCargo added. “They smelled this weird odor coming from outside and there were also flies and bugs and stuff in the apartment they never had before, so that’s what made them search around the house.”
