As CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported, the NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit and medical examiner were still at the Metropolitan Transfer Station on Halleck Street on Wednesday, a day after human body parts were found.
A 911 call was first made early Wednesday morning, about the potential discovery of human remains at the transfer station.
Investigators combed the area with the K9 unite and discovered a female torso and a leg.
Then, they found two arms with no hands. Police believe all the remains are from the same person.READ MORE: 1 Injured In Manhole Fire In Midtown; FDNY, Utility Crews On Scene
Luciano Guillen — the owner of Luciano Auto Wreckers — works next door.
“I come yesterday. I see they got somebody inside, cut, you know,” he said.
The parts were found in a transfer station so it’s unclear where the remains were originally dumped before ending up there. The company who owns the site had no comment on Wednesday.
Investigators have left the scene, but the probe is ongoing.MORE NEWS: Police: 2 Men Wanted In Violent Queens Home Invasion Stole $3,000 From Woman At Gunpoint
