MANILA - A sack filled with human body parts was discovered in front of the Senate building in Pasay City Wednesday morning.

Vendor Miniano Samarra was sweeping the streets when he noticed a white sack beside the center island past 5 a.m.

Samarra opened the sack and was shocked to find chopped up arms and legs.

Responding policemen suspect that the victim was killed in a different area and the body parts were only dumped there.

Police, however, are having a difficulty identifying the victim since the other body parts were missing.

Authorities are also not discounting the possibility that the arms and legs they recovered were from different individuals.

Police said they are trying to get possible CCTV footage in the area and other people who may have witnessed the incident. - Reports from Raffy Santos, ABS-CBN News; Henry Atuelan, dzMM
