A human skull found in Ronkonkoma in 2016 has been linked to a torso that was found seven years earlier, and police finally have a name to go along with the remains.
Suffolk police say the remains belong to 32-year old Ali Fakhri, who went missing from New York City in early 2009. He had been living in the U.S. for 10 years after emigrating from Pakistan.
Pakistani media reported extensively on Fakhri's disappearance because his father was a well-known Pakistani television actor.
The skull was found by a mountain bike rider in a wooded area on Express Drive North and Terry Road. The torso was found at 110 Sand Company.
The remains may have been identified, but more questions remain as to where the rest of the body parts are, and who is responsible for dismembering the 32-year-old.
