Canadian police find severed human head and foot in park near Toronto
A severed human head and foot have been discovered in a park near Toronto, police in Canada said Thursday.
Peel police acting inspector Randy Cowan said officers discovered the head Thursday morning in the Credit river in Mississauga.
Cowan said it’s not clear whether the foot belongs to a man or a woman, but investigators believe it was severed in recent weeks. Police have not said if the foot and head are from the same person.
“Without a cause of death we can’t call it homicide, but certainly foul play, there’s definitely something amiss,” said Cowan.
The right foot was found in the Credit river near the Hewick Meadows Park by hikers and the police marine unit found the head later Thursday.
