Police find floating leg near Fort Totten

By Phil Corso

BAYSIDE — Cops said they were investigating what appeared to be a severed human leg found floating in the water near Fort Totten earlier this week.

Officers responded to a call of a floating body part near Duane and Underhill roads in Bayside around 4:30 p.m. Monday and recovered what appeared to be a leg, the NYPD said.

Police surveyed the area and its surrounding shorelines, but did not recover any other body parts, authorities said.

The Police Department said it was now up to the city medical examiner’s office to find out where the appendage might have come from, and the investigation was ongoing.
