Police Stuck on Stabbed, Dismembered Blackman Eddy Torso

The dismembered body of a woman found in a crocus sack last week near the Iguana Creek Bridge in Black Man Eddy Village remains unidentified.  The gruesome discovery of the mutilated remains on Tuesday was made by a group of young men who were hunting iguanas in the area.  While the severed limbs were retrieved from the banks of the Belize River, the torso was found a day later in the general vicinity.  Tonight, the police are no closer to verifying an identity, nor do they have any leads to follow.  According to the Head of the Crimes Investigation Branch, an autopsy has indicated that the woman was stabbed as many as seven times before being cut into pieces.

“No.  Upon investigation of the body, the skin was removed.”
