In June, a badly decomposed torso of a woman had been found off the Red Hook coast. After initially being identified by a tattoo found on her torso, police later said the victim was Jenny Londono, a 31-year-old New Jersey resident. Her boyfriend, Raphael Lolos, 40, of Bergenfield, New Jersey, was arrested and charged in her death on July 8.
