The arms were found laying side-by-side under a light covering of soil about 1,800 feet from where the torso was buried in the mountains of Shimamoto, a town in the Osaka Prefecture, according to the newspaper. However, the woman was not found inside.

Both the NY man and the woman were spotted together on security footage at the JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka around midnight on Friday, Feb. 16, just hours before she went missing.
