Student finds severed arm on the road on the way to school

BABYLON, NY – A schoolgirl and her friends made a sinister discovery on Long Island Thursday morning. The group stumbled upon a severed arm lying on the road while on their way to school.

The grisly find was made on Siegal Boulevard in Babylon, near Southards Park, at around 8:41 a.m., according to the Suffolk County Police. After making the alarming discovery, the girl immediately contacted her father, who reported the incident to the police.

The disembodied arm was left-handed, with the fingertips reportedly missing, although it was not clear how this had occurred. An evident tattoo was visible on the appendage, as reported.

A subsequent police search headed by a canine unit discovered an additional disembodied leg. The find was made in a wooded area of Southards Park, sticking out of a leaf pile. The location was about a mile away from where the arm was found, on Graham Place between Beverly Road and Martin Place.

The authorities confirmed that the remains were recent, although the gender of the individual is still to be determined. Detective Lt. Kevin Beyrer has affirmed that the gruesome discovery is being treated as a homicide case.

The incident follows the discovery of a severed leg on Bronx train tracks two weeks prior. This previous case is speculated to involve a man being dragged by a train after falling or jumping onto the tracks.
