New York woman's body found in pieces

NEW YORK (AFP) - A man walking his dog discovered a woman's body chopped up and placed in several bags near Yankee Stadium in New York on Tuesday, police said.

They were walking in the Bronx neighborhood when they came across "several body parts - torso, head, legs, hands, feet," a police spokesman told AFP.

"The dog was attracted to the bag and he went to the bag," the officer said. "The man picked up the bag, looked inside, and discovered some body parts," and several other bags were recovered from the area.

A "person of interest" was being questioned, but the victim had not yet been fully identified. A report in the New York Post said the woman was 45 and that her 22-year-old son was being questioned.
