A man called the police after finding a severed arm in his Hempstead front yard yesterday afternoon. Now Nassau County police are determining whether the arm might be related to the female body parts found on Tuesday in Suffolk County.

According to 1010 WINS, Jose Diaz said "that he and his family started smelling something in their front yard on Tuesday. When the smell persisted on Wednesday, his brother-in-law Noel Rivera went to check it out." Rivera thought it was a dead animal at first, but then saw fingernails. Diaz said, "He saw a lot of flies on top and around," and that Rivera nearly passed out.

The Nassau County police arrived—even bringing a cadaver dog to look for more remains—as did investigators from Suffolk County, who are looking into remains found in Bay Shore. That partially dismembered body was discovered near the Fire Island Ferries parking lot. Investigators are now trying to determine whether the remains belong to a missing Brooklyn woman, who had been having problems with a landlord.

Diaz also told WABC 7, "I think they just drop it in there. Very carefully drop it because it wasn't like far from the fence. They didn't even, didn't even throw it. Just reach from the fence, put it in there. That's it... To do something like this it was a premeditated act to cut up somebody like that and drop them here and there. I want justice is done."
