Police seek link between severed head, dismembered body

Posted: Updated:


HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Investigators are awaiting a New York medical examiner's report to determine if what appears to be a human head and other body parts are linked to a partially dismembered body discovered weeks ago.

A law enforcement official familiar with the case said Friday it appears the dismembered body is likely that of a Brooklyn woman reported missing earlier this month. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to release the information.

The official says a tattoo on the torso of the body found July 8 in a Bay Shore municipal parking matches one on Chinelle Latoya Browne, 27. The latest discovery was reported Thursday 25 miles away in Hempstead.

Police in New York City and Suffolk County confirmed they are working together on the missing person investigation involving Browne.

Pearson reported from New York City.
