The torso was found stuffed in a shopping bag inside of a shopping cart in a largely industrial area of the city, as we previously reported.

The leg was found in a bag on the sidewalk in Cypress Hills around 3:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, WNBC reported. Investigators told the station there were no identified marks on the body part.

A man told police he was walking when he found the leg in a discarded tire on the sidewalk, WABC reported. Police told WABC they are not officially connecting the two body part discoveries at this point, but are actively investigating both.
