Naked Body Parts Found Along Kallang River

Two boxes containing body parts were found along the banks of the Kallang River this morning (16 Jun 2005).
At about 9.15 am , Police responded to a call of human remains found at Kallang Riverside Park.
Investigations established that a cleaner while on his rounds discovered a brown cardboard box on the river bank near Crawford Street containing what looked like the lower part of a human anatomy. Upon our further examination, it was established that it was the pelvic and thigh region of the lower abdomen belonging to a woman.
Police immediately cordoned off the surrounding area and conducted a search. At about 10 am , our officers discovered a red box lying on the opposite bank, containing a headless upper torso with the arms attached. Both the upper and lower torsos discovered were naked and wrapped in green plastic bags.
We are presently working towards establishing the identity of the victim. The search for further remains and evidence is ongoing.
