Prince George's County police are investigating a murder after officers found body parts in bags Sunday at an apartment complex in Laurel.

The victim was identified Monday as Jacinto Perez, 28, of Laurel. A motive and suspects have not been determined.

About 9:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the 8800 block of Enfield Court in Laurel for a report of a dead body in a bag. Once officers arrived, they found a second bag with more body parts, police said.

Detectives believe the body parts belong to the same victim. Police continue to search for more evidence using cadaver dogs. Academy recruits also conducted a grid search of the apartment complex Monday.
