Body Parts Found in East River Matched to Missing Teen.

Tuesday, Jan 21, 2014 *•*Updated 1:41 PM EST


Body parts found along the shore of the East River in Queens have been matched by DNA to Avonte Oquendo, the teen who went missing more than three months ago, according to the city's chief medical examiner.

The body parts were found Thursday night in College Point, just southwest of the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, about 9 miles by waterway from where Avonte was last seen on Oct. 4.

The disappearance of the autistic and mute teen launched a search that spanned the city and extended even into the suburbs for weeks. He walked out of his school in Long Island City, near the East River, and was never seen again.

Authorities said a human arm was found by a resident Thursday night, and then more body parts by officers who responded.

Searchers also located a pair of size 5 1/2 Air Jordan sneakers and a pair of jeans matching what Avonte was wearing the day he disappeared. A pair of underwear that was found did not match the size or brand he was wearing, sources said.

The flow of the East River, which is actually a tidal strait and not a river, changes direction with the tide, so it could have flowed from nearby Avonte's school to the place where the parts were found.

Family lawyer Daniel Perecman said the child was last seen on surveillance video in a park right along the water. But, he said, the teen is afraid of water and "doesn't like it." The family doesn't believe he would have voluntarily crossed a shoreline barrier.

Perecman has a press conference scheduled for later today. *

Nasty.
I wonder what happened. Three months is long enough for a body to decompose to the point it breaks apart on it's own, so no guarantee any foul play went down.

Not the ending I was hoping for. I wonder if he wandered in himself or what? They said he didn't like the water but who knows? Unless someone confesses we will probably never know,

Glad his family has some sort of closure.

I hope they work out how it happened.
