US: A gruesome incident happened in New York City, when a woman was detained after the police found a man’s severed head and other body parts stuffed in a taped-up freezer at an apartment in Brooklyn.

Man’s severed head, body parts found in freezer in New York

Around 6:15 am Monday, officers arrived at the residential building and came across severed human remains stuffed inside a taped-up freezer, said NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny.

The severed head and other body parts are believed to belong to an unidentified male victim, Kenny confirmed. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.

"We have a head. We have some limbs. As of right now, it seems like we have the whole body," he stated.

Sources said the freezer was taped shut to contain the stench of decomposition.

Woman detained

Police detained a woman living in the apartment after the grim find. She was hospitalized after complaining of illness and has not yet been questioned, officials said Tuesday.

Investigators are working to identify the victim and piece together details surrounding the dismemberment.

Probe is on

The grisly discovery came after police acted on a tip about a potential body stored at the unit. While homicide has not been confirmed, authorities continue probing the disturbing case.

The investigation remains ongoing as New York police attempt to unravel the circumstances behind the body parts stashed in the Brooklyn apartment.
