Severed human head found in bag in McKinley Park Lagoon - Police say... Of course this person drowned! Without legs or arms, how can one swim???
Police were called to the lagoon, 2210 W. Pershing Road, about 10 a.m., after someone working at the lagoon found what were appeared to be human remains in the lagoon, said Officer Nicole Trainor, a police spokeswoman. Area Central detectives were conducting a death investigation.
Police News Affairs would not detail what was found, but officials said what was believed to be a person's head was found in a bag. It was not known if the head was that of a man or a woman, a source said.
The crew cleans the lagoon about once a week and one of the usual people who cleans the lagoon spotted a bag in the water some distance out in the lagoon, the source said. That crew member or another person on the crew called police, the source said.
