TORONTO - Police on Friday found two hands in the park west of Toronto where they found a woman's severed head and foot earlier this week.
Peel Regional Police Sgt. Pete Brandwood told an afternoon press conference one hand was found downstream from where the foot was discovered, the other closer by. He also said a lot of clothing had been recovered but it's not yet known if it belongs to the victim.
In the morning, before the latest discovery, Const. George Tudos said forensic tests on the body parts will take time and "at this point we're no closer to identifying the victim."
Tudos also said there's no evidence to suggest the case is connected to the
Montreal slaying and dismemberment of student Jun Lin, 33, and arrest of Luka Magnotta, 29.
There is also no connection at this point to missing Brampton, Ont., 16-year-old Mila Johnson, Tudos said.
On Wednesday, hikers found a right foot with yellow nail polish in the
Credit River in Hewick Meadows Park in Mississauga.
Police on Thursday located a woman's head about a kilometre upstream from where the foot was found.
The decomposition of the body parts suggests they weren't in the river for months, police said.
