Investigators made the discovery “mid-morning,” during a thorough search of the park, this source said.
“The identification is in progress,” added prosecutors, confirming information from broadcaster BFMTV.
On Monday, early in the afternoon, representatives of the city’s parks and gardens discovered the first remains in the Buttes-Chaumont park.
Under a pile of green waste they had seen a plastic bag containing a woman’s pelvis and thighs; the jeans, powder blue, had not been removed, and on the latter there was a “floral decoration” at thigh level.
The park, a very busy place in north-east Paris, was evacuated on Monday and closed to the public. It was still Tuesday morning to allow for the raking.
A murder investigation was launched and the investigation was entrusted to the criminal brigade of the Paris criminal police.
The body parts must now be autopsied, according to the investigative source.
There was no evidence of the victim’s death on Monday, the Paris prosecutor said.
