    Human Torso Found in Vacant Building Amid Probe of Other Severed Limbs Found Dumped in Connecticut
    New Haven POlice
    Legs found earlier this month belonged to Ray Roberson.

    Police in Connecticut say they have found a human torso in an abandoned building, two weeks after discovering severed arms and legs at two other spots in the city. 

    State and local police in New Haven, using cadaver dogs, began searching two buildings that share a parking lot after receiving a tip Wednesday.

    Officer David Hartman says the torso was found at about noon Thursday hidden inside one of the buildings, known as a place used by the homeless for shelter. The remains have not been identified.

    Police discovered legs and arms at separate locations on July 15.

    The legs were matched by DNA testing to a 54-year-old homeless man, Ray Roberson, who had last been seen in May.

    Hartman says police have been told the two arms also likely were Roberson's.
