Canadian police finish search for body parts
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario (AP) - Candian police on Saturday ended their search for more body parts after the discovery of a woman's torso in the Niagara River.
Niagara Regional Police said they completed their search of a whirlpool to Niagara Falls, but said the search will resume if new information becomes available. Passersby alerted authorities on Wednesday after discovering the floating torso in the river.
Investigators have called the woman's death a homicide, but said it has been difficult to determine where exactly the torso may have entered the water and where the crime scene may be located.
Preliminary post-mortem results indicate the torso belongs to a white woman between 20 and 40 years old. The examination also indicated the woman had a pierced navel and at least one cesarean section scar. It is believed the torso had been in the water for four to 10 days before it was found and police hope to find more of her remains to help identify her.
