BRIDGEPORT - A  Bridgeport man disappeared 16 years ago today and police are seeking the public?s help in trying to determine who killed him.

Police say Benjamin Rosario, 45, was last seen at a bar drinking with an unknown man.

Officials say pieces of his body were later found in garbage bags along I-95 and Pleasure Beach.

Rosario's niece, "Jasmine," who doesn't want her identity known, remembers the last time she saw her uncle.  She says 16 years later, her family is still reeling from his death.

Police say they've exhausted all of their leads in the case and hope that the public can help them find Rosario's murderer. Detectives ask that if you have any information about the case to call 203-581-5256
