Police in Rome say they are investigating a suspected murder after hacked-off legs, apparently of a woman, were found in a rubbish bin and a head and torso were found in rubbish elsewhere in the Italian capital.
Police are questioning the brother of the victim.
A woman rummaging through the bin in the upmarket residential neighbourhood of Parioli yesterday evening spotted the legs and alerted police.
She was reported to be in shock after the grisly discovery.
Media reports said a surveillance camera at a nearby store apparently recorded a man throwing something into the bin where the legs were found. AP
