Friends of missing New Jersey woman Jennifer Londoño fear the worst after a leg and headless torso washed ashore in New York City last week, NBC New York reported.
On Saturday, a jogger discovered a leg with pink polish on the toenails on the shore of the Hudson River in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, according to The New York Daily News. And last Tuesday, a headless and legless torso was discovered in Brooklyn’s Red Hook Channel.
Police have not officially identified the body parts as Londoño’s, but they said that a New Jersey mother identified a tattoo on the torso as belonging to her daughter. Friends of Londoño’s held a vigil for her on Monday night.
Londoño, 31, known to her friends as Jenny, has been missing since June 25, when she was last seen closing up the New Jersey bar she owned, ABC reported. Londoño had just opened the bar, Englewood’s Luna Lounge, last month.
“For the past few days, I try to close my eyes every night, just to think that this is a dream and she’s gonna come back,” her friend Marcela Toro said to NBC. “She didn’t deserve this.”
An NYPD blood-sniffing dog found possible traces of blood in Londoño’s boyfriend’s bathtub, the Daily News reported.
“It’s looking like the investigation is turning toward the boyfriend,” a police source said to the Daily News. No one has officially been charged in her death.
