Deputies in Hancock County, Mississippi are working to determine who the washed-up body with no arms legs or head belongs to.

The torso with tattoos and piercings was found on the beach Thursday evening about two miles west of the downtown Bay St Louis waterfront business district.

Deputies say it was workers pushing sand along the Bay St. Louis beachfront who discovered the dismembered and decapitated torso.

New Orleans Police say they’re looking into the possibility the victim is 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart last seen Tuesday along Tulane Avenue who also has tattoos.

The Hancock County Sheriff says an identity may not be known until DNA test results come back on Monday.
