So horrific! Body parts and clothing were discovered along the shoreline of Queens, NY on Jan. 16, and police believe they may belong to Avonte Oquendo, an autistic teen who went missing in Oct. 2013 after running away from his school. His mom was understandably distressed, but is hopeful it’s not her son.

Human remains were discovered in Hermon A. MacNeil Park in College Point, Queens, and police revealed they might be the body of Avonte Oquendo, 14, a missing teen with autism who was last seen running out of his Long Island City, New York school at 12:45 p.m. local time on Oct. 4, 2013. We warn you, the police discoveries are gruesome.

Avonte Oquendo: Body Parts Found In Queens – Match Missing Autistic Teen?

A teenage girl passing through the beachside park on Jan. 16 discovered a horrific sight: a disembodied arm. The teen took a photo and went home to show her mother, who called the police.

A police search team surveyed the area, which is 11 miles away from Avonte’s school, and discovered two legs and a torso as well. One of the feet was wearing a size 5 1/2 pair of Air Jordans matching the sneakers Avonte was wearing when he went missing.

The Oquendo’s family attorney, David Perecman, said the partial remains also included underwear and size 16 jeans, which matched Avonte’s size, though the materials had been too degraded to make a match, reported Pix11. The body parts were taken to the Queens County Morgue, where a medical examiner will determine the cause of death, but police have no answers as to why the body was in pieces.

Avonte Oquendo’s Family Skeptical Remains Belong To Son

Avonte’s mother will not believe the remains are the body of her son until a conclusive match has been made, and maintains hope he is still safe and alive somewhere. “This has been an unimaginably grim and horrific time for her and her family,” said Perecman.

Our thoughts are with Avonte’s family at this time.

Avonte was not cut into pieces and to say that he was just makes you a horrible heartless pathetic human being. If you’re going to write something to try to inform others do your research first. Trying to get attention for yourself using a horrific event such as an autistic non verbal boys death is jus plain mean. How do you think his friends and family feel about what you wrote? As if what happened wasn’t heartbreaking enough, you have to make up details to try to spice up your writing. You disgust me and I can’t wait for karma to come back around.

I am hoping that there was no foul-play involved in this terrible tragedy. But if someone was involved in this, they should die a terrible, painful, and horrific death -slowly.
