Toronto police are investigating after the discovery of what appears to be a human hand at a North York recycling centre.
Speaking to AM640 News, Toronto Police Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu said that police received the call at around 10.a.m. on Tuesday morning, and attended the scene in the Highway 400 and Sheppard Avenue area.
The possible remains were found by an employee inside one of the industrial recycling bins at Canada Fibers Ltd.
According to Sidhu, officers remain on the scene working to determine if the remains are in fact human, while they are also canvassing the entire area and interviewing all persons who were on the scene at the time of discovery.
It comes two weeks after a torso belonging to 30 year old Toronto woman Melissa Cooper was found outside a butcher shop in Riverdale.
38 year old Albert Ian Ohab has since been charged with one count of committing an indignity to a body in connection with that discovery.
However, police will not comment on whether or not they believe the two discoveries may be linked.
