No one has been arrested so far, police said.

Discoveries of human remains have been reported in different parts of the country. On Thursday, the New York Police Department (NYPD) said it was investigating a report from someone who found a headless, armless body in a shopping cart in Brooklyn.

An NYPD spokesperson said Newsweek that an “unidentified adult female torso in a large bag” was found in the cart at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue. A medical examiner has been assigned to determine the cause of death.

In a similar discovery this week, a woman’s burnt body was found in a shopping cart in Los Angeles. The body was found by a man who saw the shopping cart on fire and later realized it contained a body after extinguishing the flames. According to police, the body belonged to a 26-year-old woman.

“We can’t say with 100% certainty that the person was actually murdered. There could be a bunch of different scenarios that played out before that,” Los Angeles Police Lt. Ryan Rabbett said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
