Severed female head, foot found in Toronto-area park
TORONTO (REUTERS) - Toronto-area police are searching for body parts as well as answers after finding a severed female head in a local river on Thursday, 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 told reporters.
"We'll be looking for the entire victim," he added.
