According to The Telegraph, workers first discovered a plastic bag containing a woman’s pelvic area. In a further search of the area, police found more bags containing more parts of a dismembered body – including a woman’s head.
A forensic team was called to the team and investigators combed the 62-acre park, which was closed to the public. Meanwhile, police are investigating video footage from surveillance cameras.

“The body was not in a state of putrefaction, suggesting a recent death,” the source reportedly said.
The victim’s identity is unknown and an autopsy is pending.
The case brings to mind the horrific murder and rape of a 12-year-old girl, whose body was found in a plastic box in Paris in October.
The French government said the suspect, a 24-year-old immigrant from Algeria, had been living in the country illegally for several years.
