    Paradise Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania

    On December 26, 2011, an unidentified human torso was recovered in Paradise Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania. The torso was found inside four black garbage bags that were tied with white cotton clothesline with a makeshift clothesline handle. A search of the area failed to locate any further remains.

    The victim had thoracic surgery up to ten years prior to his death, evidenced by the fact that the sternum was fused together with wire and surgical clips. There was an indication the victim possibly had an auto-immune disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.

    This individual had a scar/mark in the center of his chest due to sternum surgery.
