NEW YORK, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- New York police say decomposed body parts were pulled from the Harlem River near the spot where a man allegedly killed his mother and brother.

Lamar Platt, 23, allegedly has confessed to killing Marlene Platt and Nashawn Platt and dumping their bodies in the river off Roberto Clemente State Park, the New York Post said Wednesday.

Platt, who is being held without bail, allegedly told police he fatally shot his brother and mother Nov. 18 and then spent several days cutting the bodies into pieces. He then allegedly used a shopping cart to carry the body parts to the park over a three-day period, the newspaper said.
