Arlington Heights investigators are checking for a connection to the severed lower half of a body found at the Marketview Apartment on Dryden in Arlington Heights on April 16, 2010 after the head and torso of a human body were found at Lions Woods Forest Preserve near Golf Road and River Road. The body was found about 11:30 a.m. today along the shoreline of the Des Plaines River in Lions Woods by a United States Department of Agriculture worker who was studying otters.

The human remains did not have any clothing and were not identifiable at first appearance. An autopsy will be performed by the Cook County Medical Examiner. A DNA test is expected to provide information whether the two severed body parts are a match. Forest Preserve police along with the Cook County Sheriff’s police investigations section are investigating the discovery, but Arlington Heights police are also involved with the investigation. However, no link has been revealed between the lower half body that was found in Arlington Heights in April.
