HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Police are investigating what appears to be a human head found in a Long Island town where two severed arms were discovered about a week ago.

Hempstead police say the head was found at about 5 p.m. Thursday on Boylston Street, close to where the two arms were found dumped on residential lawns.

Authorities are trying to determine if the body parts are linked to a partially dismembered body found July 8 in a municipal parking lot in Bay Shore, about 25 miles east of Hempstead.

Those remains were found by two people who were walking to the Fire Island ferry terminal about a half-mile away.

Homicide detectives in Nassau and Suffolk counties are investigating as they await DNA results on the other body parts.
