Arrest Made! Torsos, Body Parts discovered in Detroit Waterways

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...waterways?lite

Torsos, body parts discovered floating in Detroit waterways

Quote:
The torsos of a man and woman, and later body parts believed to belong to the two, were found floating in Detroit-area waterways on Tuesday morning, the Detroit Free Press reported.


Follow @NBCNewsUS "This was vicious," Commander Steve Dolunt of the Detroit Police Department told the paper. "It looks like they were sending a message. It’s not just a normal — if there is a normal — homicide.”

Seems like, with the news of bodies being cut up by others, there might be copy cat crimes happening.

Possibly cartel activity with their usual method of dealing with people too.

Thanks for these links. I have been busy at work today, and haven't had time to look for updates. Of interest, I find these quotes:

Quote:
To the left, a yellow-handled circular saw -- cordless with a battery pack -- which investigators believe was used to cut the limbs from two headless torsos discovered floating nearby early Tuesday.

Quote:
Police believe the parts belong to two torsos -- a man and a woman -- missing heads, legs and arms, said Detroit Police Department Eastern District Cmdr. Steve Dolunt.

He said they appeared to be in their 20s or 30s.
Quote:
The woman's torso has a distinctive tattoo, Dolunt said. Investigators were not releasing the type of tattoo, worried that she might be identified to her family through the news media.

I completely understand them not wanting to describe the woman's tattoo for fear this is the way the family will know, but how do they propose to identify this lady?

Are they just waiting for a missing persons report to come in describing a tattoo like the one on the body?

Also, a circular saw is a very odd type of cutting instrument to dismember a body.

Did they have an idea when they were killed? It's proximity to Toronto made me think back to another murder. Did they determine without a doubt that Luka Rocco Magnotta acted alone?

It also reminds me of murders even further back-Link

I wonder if those murders had something to do with organized crime.

Sounds like organized crime to me. Drugs, mafia.

I doubt Eric Newman (aka Magnotta) was involved.
