Police find dismembered parts of a toddler in a park

A police sketch has been released in a bid to
identify a toddler whose body parts were
found scattered in a park.
The body parts of a toddler that were found
in a plastic bag are believed to be that of
African American toddler around two or
three years old. The baby’s remains that
were found include a feet, the head and
hands were found in a park in Chicago over
the weekend.
The tot has no ear piercings, which
may indicate that the child is male, but
“at this point, we’re not positive,”
Chicago police Superintendent Garry
McCarthy said.
The innocent baby’s torso has not been
recovered but its body parts were put in
plastic bags, which were weighted down and
put in a lagoon at the park. It couldn’t be
ascertained immediately if the child was
male or female but no piercings were found
on the baby’s ears.
“We don’t know the events that have
brought us to this point but I can tell
you that we’re not going to rest until
we solve this particular event,”
McCarthy told the news conference.
“There was certainly a crime
committed, maybe not a murder, but
that’s irrelevant at this point because
we need to find out what happened.”
At least a portion of Garfield Park remained
closed on Thursday as police continued to
investigate.
Detectives, a marine unit and canine officers
have been searching the park, draining a
lagoon and searching for clues as to what
happened to the baby and who committed
the gruesome act on the baby.
Close to 150 calls with tips about the case
have come in since Wednesday, police said.
The composite sketch was compiled with the
help of photos from a medical examiner, X-
rays and the child’s remains.
