MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Police have identified a woman whose body parts were found scattered in Toronto-area waterways as a single mother of three.
Peel Regional Police say Guang Hua Liu, 41, was reported missing on Aug. 11 and was last seen by friends in the late afternoon the previous day.
Insp. George Koekkoek (KOH-kik) says until recently Liu was the owner of a now-defunct spa in east-end Toronto, where she lived.
Koekkoek says two sets of body parts — some found in east-end Toronto and some found in a river west of the city — have been forensically identified as being from Liu.
A head, foot and two hands were discovered in the Credit River in Mississauga, west of Toronto, last week.
Over the weekend, two calves, a thigh and an arm were found in West Highland Creek in east-end Toronto, about 45 kilometres away from the site in Mississauga.
