Operators renew efforts to launch Ringo gaming



Homicide investigators were embroiled in a macabre jigsaw puzzle across three Southland cities today as hacked-up human parts packed in green plastic bags continued to turn up. The latest grisly find came early today when a Sunset Beach resident poking around in a trashr bin behind a Pacific Coast Highway bar in search of unusual bottles found a green trash bag containing a human leg. Los Angeles County Deputy Coroner David Katsuyama, called to the scene by Orange County sheriff's investigators, said the leg matched parts of the body of a young male Caucasian found stuffed in green plastic bags in one Long Beach and two Wilmington locations Sunday. An unidentified Marine made the first gruesome discovery at 2 a.m. Sunday on the Terminal Island Freeway. He found a plastic bag containing a right leg and foot, lying in the slow lane south of Anaheim Street. Los Angeles police found the second bag at the Pacific Coast Highway on-ramp of the Terminal Island Freeway at 5:30 a.m. It contained the victim's arms, with the hands severed, officers said. At 10:25 'a.m. Sunday, police made the third find near Alameda Street and Henry Ford Drive in Los Angeles. It was a bag containing a human torso. Following the discovery at Sunset Beach today, sheriff's Cant. James Broadbelt said it was obvious that more than one body was involved and "definitely indicated" that all the butchery was linked to one killer. The Sunset Beach find came shortly after daybreak today as resident Tim McAuliffe, searching for bottles to make ornamental cut glass, looked in the bin behind Broom(TurntoBackPg.,Col. 1)
