Body part found in river

Believed to belong to dismembered Salisbury victim

SALISBURY — A body part that may belong to Dennis Ray Jackson, the man dismembered in November and whose remains were found scattered in two locations, was reportedly found Friday in the Charles River in Cambridge by state police divers.

Essex County District Attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball-Monahan said the body part may be connected to the Salisbury homicide.

Jackson’s burning torso, arms and legs were found in mid-November in two locations — inside a barrel on property owned by Bridgewater State Prison and behind a Hyde Park building. A day later, more than a dozen state, local and Boston law enforcement officials searched the Liberty Street apartment in Salisbury that Reggie Cummings had rented in September and that Jackson had visited on many occasions.

Police sources have said that Jackson may have been killed and dismembered in the Salisbury apartment. However, authorities have released little information about the probe into Jackson’s death. No one has been charged yet in connection with the case.
