More female body parts found at Bronx trash facility

The arms of an unidentified female were found Wednesday at a Bronx trash transfer facility a day after a female leg and torso were found there.



An equipment operator at the Metropolitan Transfer Station -- located at 287 Halleck St. in Hunts Point -- first discovered a human leg and torso early Tuesday morning inside a load of debris. Then on Wednesday, investigators dressed in hazmat suits found two arms with the hands removed.



Some published reports indicate that there are five containers the garbage is separated into -- three in the Bronx and two in Kearny, New Jersey. Police have not confirmed if their investigation has expanded out of state.



A facility employee tells News 12 that trucks had already left the Bronx to make drop-offs in New Jersey before the body parts were found Tuesday.



The medical examiner is working to determine to whom the body parts belong and a cause of death.



Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
