Is there a connection between two severed arms found in NY?

A second severed arm was found in as many days on Thursday, July 10 in Hempstead, Long Island.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Police in New York are looking for a possible connection after the discovery of body parts in three different locations on Long Island, reports CBS New York.

Detectives are investigating after a severed arm was found Thursday in the yard of a Hempstead, N.Y., home just a few blocks from where another arm was discovered by a resident on Wednesday.

"Who would do something like that? I still couldn't believe it," neighbor Adrian Boyd told the station. "I'm still weirded out."

The station reports via police sources that investigators believe the body may belong to a missing Brooklyn mother of four, 27-year-old Chinelle Latoya Browne.

The woman's family reported her missing on Saturday and CBS New York reports that distinct tattoos found on the torso in Bay Shore match those of Browne.

Both Suffolk and Nassau County police processed the scene, but Suffolk homicide detectives are taking the lead in the case to see if the remains belong to the dismembered torso that was found Tuesday in a parking lot on Bay Shore, Long Island.

Police said those remains were found by two people who were walking to the ferry terminal, according to CBS New York.

Investigators are currently awaiting DNA test results.
