Police in Canada are searching for body parts as well as answers after finding a severed female head in a Toronto river, near where hikers found a severed human foot the previous day.
Police recovered the head in the park near the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario, a city of 700,000 located just west of Toronto.
The authorities could not confirm the body parts were from the same person, but were working on that assumption.
"Obviously, we consider it as foul play, and we are treating it as such," Peel police spokesman Randy Cowan said. "We'll be looking for the entire victim."
The body parts, found about one kilometre apart, had likely been there for weeks, he said. It is the second gruesome set of discoveries in Canada in less than three months.
