Leg Found Floating in Hudson Could Belong to Torso Found in Brooklyn: NYPD

UPPER WEST SIDE — A leg found washed up near the 79th Street boat basin could belong to the torso found floating near Red Hook last week, police said. 

Police said the leg — which still had pink painted toenails on its foot — was spotted by a jogger near the Hudson River on Saturday around noon.

Officials are now investigating to see if it belongs to the woman's torso found near Red Hook's shoreline, last week.

The "badly decomposed" torso was found floating without any of its limbs June 27, police said. 

Police released a photo of a tattoo found on the torso, and days later the woman's mother walked into the 76th Precinct after recognizing it, according to the NYPD.

The tattoo, of Hindi writing and stars, was a tribute to her aunt, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Friday.

He didn't release the name or age of the woman, who he said was from New Jersey.
