NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A human arm has been found in Connecticut near where a pair of legs was found earlier.

New Haven police say they found what appears to be at least one arm Wednesday night inside a plastic bag on a ledge below a bridge.

Officer David Hartman says police don’t known if the remains are related but forensic examiners and a cadaver dog are returning to the area.

Hartman says the legs were found Wednesday morning in thick foliage along the fence line near a railroad station. A man had led an officer to that scene, about a block from the bridge.

The state medical examiner will try to determine the age, gender and race of the person or people whose remains were found.

Police are checking missing-person reports.
