Decomposing Human Legs and Arm Found in Connecticut.

The limbs were found in different locations: the legs were near the train tracks off State and Court Streets, while the arm was found near Chapel Street, according to a report by WTNH.

City police spokesman David Hartman told the New Haven Register a man approached a New Haven Police officer early Wednesday morning who said he found the legs, which were hidden within thick foliage along a fence in the area of the State Street Railroad Station. Later Wednesday, police confirmed in a release that at about 7 p.m., authorities found “what appears to be at least one human arm in a plastic bag on a ledge below the Chapel Street Bridge near Union Avenue.” There are far more questions than answers at this point. Witnesses told WTNH the discovery included a right and left leg presumably from one person – although further testing will confirm – and consisted of the mid-calf area down to the foot. New Haven resident Pablo Rivera told the Register at the scene Wednesday that he and a friend discovered the legs on Tuesday and reported them to police, but thinks his claim was not taken seriously.

Rivera claims the legs had maggots crawling on them and had socks covering the feet but no shoes. “Walking over I thought I smelled something a little odd like a dead animal or something and I never really gave it a second thought,” Fumiatti said. “You got to wonder what happened down here, was it a train accident or was it something else nefarious that went on?” Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Meredith Daniels, a spokeswoman with Metro-North, said in a phone interview Wednesday that the human parts are unrelated to any incident involving Metro-North trains.
