Crisis teams await returning students after gruesome discoveries

Crisis teams will greet students returning to two Vancouver schools where human body parts were delivered yesterday — a chilling discovery in the shadow of the body-parts killing already in headlines.

Vancouver police told Toronto Star reporters they are talking to investigators to determine whether the human limbs could be linked to Jun Lin, whose dismembered torso was found in a Montreal alley May 29.

“Both as mayor and as a father, I find today’s events at False Creek Elementary and St. George’s School to be deeply disturbing and repugnant,” Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said Tuesday.

The Canadian Press reports that classes at False Creek Elementary School and St. George’s private school will resume this morning.

“In any kind of situation like this, we try to as much as possible to normalize the situation,” Kurt Heinrich of the Vancouver School Board told the Globe. “We’re doing our best to try and make sure our students are not negatively impacted as best as we can.”

In other developments this morning, the National Post is reporting that a foot found in Montreal was made of plastic.
