A CHOPPED up body has been found in rubbish bags in El Altet, near Elche.
The remains were found just meters away from where another body was discovered in May last year.
The grim discovery was made by a couple walking by the pine forest on Friday afternoon.
Police have confirmed the body, which has not yet been identified but is believed to be a middle-aged man, was missing the extremities.
It is not known if it is connected to the body found last year which was discovered to have been carrying drugs inside a neck wound.
An autopsy is being carried out by the Anatomical Forensic Institute in Alicante.
