(Newser) – Another gruesome body-parts case, this time in France: Police in Paris say they are questioning a Chinese couple over two headless torsos found in a forest at the edge of the city. After a guide dog found a torso in the Vincennes forest on Friday, the couple turned themselves in and led police to another torso, AFP reports. The pair say they killed another couple, also Chinese, after a dispute over the death of the murdered couple's child, who died while in their care. They said they fled to China after killing and dismembering the couple but returned to France because they were "overcome with remorse."
