The officers initially said they believed the object was an animal carcass. Once it was dislodged and floated down stream, they realized it was human.
The officers then followed the remains and discovered 30 yards south of the first torso, the second torso was located. Both torsos were reportedly snagged against brush along the riverbank just west of The National Supply Company.
Both torsos were reportedly nude and so badly decomposed, officers said they were unable to determine their sex. Upon the discovery, Attorney Will Kernen broke down and was seen "running and screaming" from the area.
