HEMPSTEAD - Police are looking at a person of interest in the Bay Shore and Hempstead dismemberment case who has residences in New York City and Suffolk County, according to Newsday.

Investigators have been looking into the case since a dismembered body was found in a wooded area in Bay Shore on July 8. A day later, an arm was found on a Hempstead man’s front lawn. The next day, another arm was found in Hempstead.

On Thursday, a severed head was found in Hempstead.

The husband of missing Brooklyn woman Chinelle LaToya Browne spoke with News 12 via Skype. He believes the body parts belong to his wife.

Officials have not officially stated that the remains in Bay Shore, along with the arms and head in Hempstead, belong to the same person. They also haven't stated if any or all of the remains belong to Browne, although a law enforcement source has told the Associated Press that it is “likely.”

Suffolk police remain the lead agency investigating the case, although Nassau police and the NYPD are reportedly involved in the investigation.
