    NYT:

For years there were none, officials said, and last year the Police Department investigated only one.

    I don't know for sure, but the heart looks suspiciously like a beef heart. I used to buy them, six at a time, from my local butcher (and freeze them individually in zip-lock bags!), to practise my dissection skills for MedSci I. My dog was most grateful for the results

    Police investigating if mystery Norwalk heart belonged to PA woman

    Sgt. Jim Fulton says a police officer from nearby Pittsburgh saw news reports on the heart and called to tell the Norwalk police that they are investigating the case where they only have the victim's embalmed head. Fulton says that, if it is discovered the heart was embalmed, they will get back in touch with the Pennsylvania officer.
