NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Police are working to identify two dismembered bodies found early Tuesday in the Detroit River.
"Someone obviously had a bone to pick with these two people, and wanted to send a message,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Detroit Police Commander Steve Dolunt.
He called the discovery of two bodies Tuesday morning Ã¢â‚¬Å“unconscionableÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Body parts of a white man and a white woman were discovered in the river and in a nearby canal.
Police recovered both torsos in the water near Brush Park and Riverview-Lakewood Park just after 7 a.m.
The remains were taken to the medical examinerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s office.
Later fisherman found legs, arms, a head and at least one power saw in the water several hundred yards up shore.
The area is swarming with homicide detectives, evidence collectors making sure they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t miss anything the second time.
Investigators say the womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s body has a distinctive tattoo, but wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t describe it for fear her family will instantly make the connection to this grisly case.
