NEW YORK (AP) - Police are questioning a second person about the dismembered remains of a woman found in garbage bags on New York City streets.
Police said Wednesday they continued questioning a 23-year-old man who was taken into custody earlier. They have said he made remarks implicating himself.
They're describing the second person as a "person of interest."
As yet, no one has been charged.
A man out walking his dog found the first bag when his pet sniffed it on a Bronx street early Tuesday. Police then found three other bags with remains on surrounding blocks.
Police believe the victim was 45-year-old home health aide Tanya Byrd.
