Body and body parts recovered from 2 Boston rivers


BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts state police are investigating partial human remains found in a river in Boston less than two hours after authorities recovered another body from a separate river.

State police spokesman David Procopio says authorities on Saturday recovered a body discovered floating in the Muddy River shortly after 9 a.m. Boston police are investigating.

State police, however, are probing the recovery of partial human remains found at 10:40 a.m. in the Charles River.

Police say those remains are possibly related to other human body parts found in the river about a month ago. Police do not believe they were put in the river recently.

Procopio says the discovery of these body parts does not indicate any ongoing threat to the public. He declined to release additional details, citing a potentially related ongoing investigation.
