Severed human hands found in park

Police in Canada said they have discovered two severed human hands in a river at a park near Toronto where a human head and foot were found earlier this week.

Sergeant Pete Brandwood said one of the hands was discovered in the Credit River close to where the foot was found.

He said it is not clear if the left and right hands are from the same person, but it is common sense to assume so.

Authorities discovered a woman’s head in the river yesterday.

A human head was found in a Montreal park in July. It belonged to Jun Lin, a Chinese student who was killed and dismembered in May. Canadian porn actor Luka Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in that case.
