The uptown 3 train was completely stopped and uptown 2 was re-routed when a 3 train engineer noticed body parts at the 116th Street station. Police are investigating the incident, which caused some commuting issues during yesterday afternoon and evening's rush hour (Gothamist can personally attest to this). The NY Times (print edition) reported that the body parts were so mutilated that investigators were unable to determine the gender.

Upon hearing the engineer telling passengers about the train issues on a local from Times Square ("Passengers, there is a police investigation at 116th Street..."), tourists mouthed, "Police investigation?!" to each other and laughed nervously. Tourists, you're not the only ones.
