    Another severed arm was discovered in a Long Island yard Thursday, a day after one was found on a man's lawn in the same town, police say.

    The arm found Thursday was in a yard near the residential area of Stewart Avenue and Cornell Street in Hempstead, about a half-mile from where a Webb Avenue homeowner found an arm he said appeared to have women's clothing attached to it Wednesday.

    The arm was taken to the Nassau County medical examiner's office for examination. 

    Police are looking into whether the arms are related to to the discovery of a partially dismembered body in a municipal parking lot in Bay Shore on Tuesday. 

    The remains discovered in the lot Tuesday were found by two people walking to the ferry on Fire Island.

    Hempstead, Nassau and Suffolk police are investigating. The NYPD is also assisting as they look into whether it's related to a case of a missing Brooklyn mother of four, according to law enforcement sources. 

    That woman, 27-year-old Chinelle LaToya Browne of Brownsville, was last seen at her home Saturday, according to police.
