A woman walking her dog came upon the lower parts of a human body Thursday in the garden of a vacated house in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward, police said.

They are now investigating if the latest find is related to a torso found in a plastic bag on a street in Shinjuku Ward on Dec. 16, investigative sources said, without elaborating on the find, except to say they believe the deceased was a young Asian man, given the skin color.

The empty house is in a neighborhood around 1 km from JR Shibuya Station.
