    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2013/10/29/21229291.html"Body parts believed to be from the same woman have been found at two water treatment plants in the Los Angeles area, sheriff's homicide
    detectives said Monday.

    The upper torso with the head mangled was found at a sewage treatment plant on Monday in the unincorporated community of Bassett, when workers came to check a plug in the line, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Rosson said at a news conference broadcast on several local television stations.

    Two days earlier, other body parts were found at a facility in the suburb of Carson, about 25 miles away, authorities said in a statement"

    "The upper half of a woman's body was found Monday at a Los Angeles County sewage plant and investigators believe her lower half turned up two days earlier at another plant some 30 miles away, authorities said.

    The woman's body may have slipped into the wastewater processing system through a manhole or sewer line in the San Gabriel Valley east of downtown Los Angeles and been mangled by a pump before wastewater was distributed to processing centers, sheriff's Lt. Mike Rosson said.

    One of the woman's arms was still missing.

    Rosson said workers checking a plugged line found the woman's head and upper torso at the plant in unincorporated Bassett, about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, KNBC-TV (http://bit.ly/1g7CCdB ) reported"

    "The body, which detectives said might be that of a Hispanic woman, would have entered the system either through a manhole cover or a sewer line, he said. The body may have entered in one piece and been torn apart as it moved through the system, he said.

    A cause of death had not yet been determined by late Monday, but a sheriff’s department news release said that the case was being investigated as a homicide"

    IIRC, this happened in Michigan as well. I think I remember coming across something very similar while looking into Jessica Heeringa's case...

    I don't know what the geography is like where this happened. Is it likely that she was dumped into a stream, river, or lake that was used as a water source. Sometimes muncipalities will pull water from a lake into a water treatment facility where they filter out the sand, debris and then chlorinate. Or do you think someone dumped her body into a drainage ditch?

    Just found the answers to my questions. They have found more body parts. They think that she was dumped down into a manhole intact. Will post the article.

    More Body Parts Found at Water Treatment Plant

    Authorities were investigating whether the case on Thursday was connected to two earlier cases

    By Jason Kandel

    | Friday, Nov 1, 2013 | Updated 1:17 AM PDT

    In the third such case in six days, authorities were investigating human remains found at a waste water treatment plant in Carson.

    Details about the discovery on Thursday were sketchy, but the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said it was investigating body parts found at a plant Thursday morning at the Los Angeles County Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in the 24000 block of South Figueroa Street.

    It was the second such find at this plant and the third in six days.

    On Saturday at the Carson plant, officials uncovered remains of a human leg and foot at the pollution control plant. Detectives believe Thursday's discovery is related to Saturday's find at the plant.

    On Monday, a worker at a wastewater plant near the city of Industry found a human torso and head while checking a clogged line, officials said.

    Homicide detectives and coroner's officials were investigating the connection among all three cases.

    There is a video with this link.

    " CARSON, Calif. (KABC) -- Human remains found at two Los Angeles County water treatment plants have been identified, but it remains a mystery how the body ended up there.

    Authorities say the remains were identified as 27-year-old Erin Lynn Cruz of the East San Gabriel Valley. Investigators say she stayed at various homes of family members and friends.

    Cruz was last seen alive with an unidentified man in the La Puente area on the night of Oct. 23. Lt. Mike Rosson of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department says that man is considered a person of interest at this time, but not a suspect"
