NEW YORK - MAY 26:  Pedestrians in Times Square walk past a police car May 26, 2004 in New York City. The U.S. fears that al Qaeda may be plotting an attack inside the country or against U.S. interests abroad. Despite these warnings, the government has no plans to raise the terror threat level and has no details on when, where or how an attack might occur.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Police found the woman's decomposed body Saturday in the Richmond Hill attic of a man who committed suicide there two weeks earlier, reports NBC New York. The woman's legs were severed from her body, so police are trying to identify her by her six tattoos, which include "Danny" on the top of her left wrist and "serenity" on her right index finger. The actual discovery was made by NYPD veteran Devchand Autar, brother of Dvendra Autar, who hung himself from a pull-up bar in the home.
