Two men were arrested Tuesday in connection with the slaying and dismemberment of a man in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, according to a published report.

The remains were found by police dogs with the Bergen County Sheriff's Department in two separate locations at about 2 p.m. Monday afternoon, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office.

According to the Cliffview Pilot, the two men detained in connection with the crime are being held on $2 million bail each. They are named as Pedro Garcia, 33, and Wilfredo Sanchez, 34, the newspaper said.

Friends and family identified the victim as 46-year-old Francisco Gonzalez. They say police were called to his apartment after Gonzalez was reported missing.

The police dogs led investigators to a nearby church where they discovered his head and torso, according to the family. More body parts were apparently found in a separate location nearby.

The remains have been taken to the medical examiner's office for a forensic exam so that investigators can identify the body and determine a cause of death.
