On Monday (April 9) night, officials discovered the dismembered body of a woman in a Brooklyn park, after a parkgoer walked past the limbless body.
53-year-old Canarsie resident Robert Clouden explained that he saw the torso when he was at the park walking his Maltese, Maxwell, on Monday morning. He said that he didn’t inform police because he didn’t think it was real, “It was a path I don’t normally take with him. I looked over to my left and I thought what I saw was a doll. It didn’t have any clothing.”
He added that the limbless body was found between 10 to 12 feet off a path, towards the back of the park. The body was lying on its front.
“All I saw was a torso. I didn’t see legs or anything. It was a petite body. It wasn’t that big. That’s what made me think it was a doll,” he said.
Clouden took Maxwell back to the park for an evening walk. When he saw police near the scene, he realized that he actually saw a human body in the morning.
He was shocked and said that it is a quiet area, with more people coming to the park over the summer. The horrific discovery was made by another parkgoer at around 6:10 p.m. in Canarsie Park, at E. 86th St. and Seaview Ave.
According to officials, the woman’s head was still attached to her torso. She was naked, but her legs and arms were dismembered. At this time, she has not been identified, and no suspect was named. The investigation is still ongoing, and officials have yet to determine the cause of this gruesome death.
