Torso found in Niagara River
A woman's torso has been pulled out of the Niagara River.
It was spotted in the water by the Rainbow Bridge by citizens Wednesday afternoon.
Police say the owner of the torso is the victim of homicide.
So far, police think the victim is a white, middle-aged woman with a pierced belly button. She looks to have had at least 1 C-Section & her tubes were tied.
Police expect to know more once an autopsy on the torso wraps up Friday.
Forensic investigators have been able to determine the torso doesn’t belong to the victim in a Toronto murder & dismemberment case. Guang Hua Liu's head, hands & 1 of her feet were found in the Credit River in Missisauga earlier this month. Her calves, 1 of her thighs & 1 of her arms also turned up in an east-Toronto creek. Liu's ex-boyfriend Chun Qi Jang has been charged with 2nd degree murder in her death.
Niagara Regional Police are appealing for any information about the torso found in the Niagara River. If you know anything call the Major Crimes Unit at 905-688-4111 x4200. You call also submit a tip through Crime Stoppers.
