(Newser) – Police are to resume searching a Chicago park this morning after the grisly discovery yesterday afternoon of the severed body parts of a toddler, reports the Chicago Tribune. Police responded yesterday to a 911 call reporting a foot floating in Garfield Park Lagoon; it turned out to be the left foot of a toddler—unclothed and in what the Tribune calls an advanced state of decomposition. Subsequent searching yielded the right foot and both hands, along with a 20-pound weight. Officers called off the search last night, but sealed the scene. The investigation is continuing, notes CNN.
