THE BRONX - The frozen torso of a man was found stuffed inside a Dumpster on East 168th Street early Saturday morning, police say.

The gruesome discovery was made by a building superintendent, who spotted a large clear container while cleaning out the trash. The torso was crammed inside.

Eyewitnesses say the body was decapitated, missing both arms and legs and wearing nothing but a Yankees World Series jersey.

The superintendent says there are several surveillance cameras in the vicinity that may have caught who dumped the body.
