Human Remains in Industry Linked to Carson

Investigators say there is a link between the human remains found Monday in Industry and remains found over the weekend in Carson. A female human torso was discovered at a sewage plant about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Kathy Vara reports from The Industry for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. Oct. 28, 2013.

In the third such case in six days, authorities were investigating human remains found at a waste water treatment plant in Carson.

Details about the discovery on Thursday were sketchy, but the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said it was investigating body parts found at a plant Thursday morning at the Los Angeles County Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in the 24000 block of South Figueroa Street.

It was the second such find at this plant and the third in six days.

On Saturday at the Carson plant, officials uncovered remains of a human leg and foot at the pollution control plant. Detectives believe Thursday's discovery is related to Saturday's find at the plant.

On Monday, a worker at a wastewater plant near the city of Industry found a human torso and head while checking a clogged line, officials said.

Homicide detectives and coroner's officials were investigating the connection among all three cases.
