Authorities in Chicago say they don’t know yet whether child body parts found in the city’s Garfield Park are from the same body.
Over the weekend, after a human foot was discovered, searchers recovered the head, two hands, and another foot of a child, according to the police department and the city’s medical examiner’s office. Investigators found the hands and feet in a lagoon in the park on Saturday and officers continued searching into the night, video footage from CNN affiliate WLS showed.
A source with knowledge of the investigation said it was a citizen who made the first discovery in the park.
A search of the same area Sunday recovered the head.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said investigators also found a plastic bag that was brought to a lab to be opened in a sterile environment. Guglielmi said he believes the remains were somehow separated from the bag.
