N.C. INVESTIGATORS DISCOVER FURTHER BODY PARTS IN HOUSE

More body parts - including some that appear to be those of a woman - were found in the kitchen of a rural farmhouse where investigators earlier discovered a man's torso and skull.

Deputies on Wednesday found four intact human ears, including one in a centerpiece of plastic fruit on a kitchen table, Orange County Sheriff Lindy Pendergrass told the Herald-Sun of Durham.No additional charges were filed against two men being held, pending identification of the parts, District Attorney Carl Fox said.

Two body parts "were hidden in some objects in the home there . . . in the kitchen area," Fox said. "It appeared these parts had been saved."
