Make Dismemberment A Bail Eligible Crime, Long Island Pols Say

Long Island lawmakers are pushing to make dismemberment and concealment of a human body a bail-eligible crime, following the recent discoveries of human remains in Babylon, West Babylon, and Bethpage State Park.

Four individuals were arrested following a police investigation and charged with concealment of a human corpse, but were released with GPS monitoring. They were not held on bail, as without murder charges, their crimes were not deemed bail eligible under New York State law.
