    amazing stories!! I lived in Kentucky and there was a book in Louisville that listed a BUNCH of bodies that were pulled from the Ohio River in Barrels. If memory serves me, there was no way to know where the barrels originated. Some had more than 1 body in them and some were shot. This was in the old days. But can you imagine pulling barrels out of the rivers now. I guess that was one way to get rid of people you didn't like. Thanks for starting this thread.

    here is another one I found of a skull found in the Harlem river in 1961 and also includes of a trunk with a torso that was found 2 years prior


    http://fultonhistory.com/newspaper%2...20-%202997.pdf


    As yet. there is nothing to link the human skull found here near the Hudson River Sunday to the Hastlngs-on-Hudson torso slaying that has stymied authorities for two years. The skull was found on the hank of the Hudson lust above the Greystone Railroad Station during a walk of a father and his son and daughter. It was first reported that the boy had made the find, but this was categorically denied by trio hovs sister. "I found it

    Yonkers police wore notified andl the skull was turned over fo the county medical examiner at Grasslands Hospital. Two years ago this month, two teenage hoys found a shiny black trunk they believed to be a trea sure chest in a wooded area on the Graham School grounds in Hastings. Unable to open the trunk, they carried their find up an embankment of the New York Aqueduct and dropped it on the stones below. Out spilled the torso and arms of a man wrapped in a gray blanket.

    A search for the missing head, hands and legs proved futile All leads were checked out. Nothing happened. A noted anthropologist was called in and ft police artist drew a sketch from information furnished.
    Chamber

    There was more but I could not copy and paste it
