Austin man charged with murder, dismemberment, and concealment after body discovered in trash this week
Judson Taylor, 56, was charged Tuesday with felony counts of first-degree murder, dismembering a human body, concealing homicidal death, and abuse of a corpse after a 37-year-old man's body was found in various areas in the Austin neighborhood over the course of this week.

AUSTIN, Chicago - An Austin neighborhood man was charged by Chicago Police on Tuesday with a disturbing set of felony counts after the dismembered remains of a man were found at various locations around the Austin neighborhood this week.

Judson Taylor, 56, of the 5000 block of W. Washington Boulevard in the Austin neighborhood, was charged Tuesday with felony counts of first-degree murder, dismembering a human body, concealing homicidal death, and abuse of a corpse after a 37-year-old man's body was found in various areas in the Austin neighborhood over the course of this week.

According to Chicago Police, Taylor reportedly stabbed the victim and "knowingly dismembered, severed, separated, dissected, or mutilated" the body before hiding the parts nearby in the neighborhood. The victim has been identified as 37-year-old Kevin Perry, though the relationship between the two men is not yet clear.

Last Wednesday, trash collectors found the lower half of a man's body on the 4900 block of W. Washington Boulevard and on Saturday, sources reported that the torso of the man was discovered on the 100 block of North Leclaire Avenue, blocks away from the previous discovery. Finally, on Sunday, investigators found human arms in a dumpster on the 5000 block of W. Washington Boulevard.

Taylor was expected in court late Tuesday.
