    Child's Body Parts Found in Chicago's Garfield Park

    The body parts of a child were found in Chicago's Garfield Park on Saturday afternoon, the Chicago Police Department said.



    Police said a child's foot was discovered near the park's lagoon at around 5:40 p.m. ET.

    They said additional human remains were discovered after the park was closed for investigation.

    Police told NBC News it was not known whether the body parts belonged to the one person.

    Officers searched the park into the evening, and said the search for remains would resume Sunday.

    The park is closed until further notice.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...d-park-n422526

    Someone called 911 to report a small foot floating in the lagoon, the Chicago Tribune reported. It turned out to be the left foot of a toddler.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/09/06...o-park-lagoon/

    He says the remains were badly decomposed but that it appears they are those of a toddler. He says detectives haven't determined whose remains they are or how the child might have died.

    I just read this on the news-such a grisly find! I hope they can find the rest of this little one and find her/his identity. So sad.

    "Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says a person called 911 at about 4:40 p.m. Saturday to report seeing what turned out to be a toddler's left foot floating in the Garfield Park lagoon. He says officers subsequently found a right foot and a hand in the lagoon about 25 yards away."

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/s...906-story.html

    The article states the body was badly decomposed, which indicates the child has been missing from some family long enough to be noticed gone. This isn't something freshly done within the past day. While I wish the case didn't happen at all, I do hope the identity can be quickly found on a list of children already reported missing. In other words, I hope the child was loved in life.

    HOW, just HOW can a human being do such a thing to a tiny, innocent little child? There IS no explanation! There IS no reason! There IS no excuse! There IS no forgiveness on earth! There is ONLY pain and suffering.

    I grew up in a suburb ten miles north of Garfield Park, although I'm not at all familiar with this area.

    Just awful. I really have no other words, just prayers for the poor soul who made the find.

    I wonder about any reported missing children in Chicago. If this child wasn't reported missing it's obvious the family is involved. It makes me ill to think about.

    I did a quick search and didn't come up with much. I'm certainly not the best at searching databases though.

    given this was a toddler, not likely in school yet, the child may not have been reported missing by its caretakers

    What a horrible thing for the person who discovered the foot. Busy enjoying a lovely sunny day at the park and then everything turns dark.

    Horrifying that 1) someone would do this to a child and 2) there are no children reported missing in this age range. No family has come forward to say they hadn't seen a certain toddler in the recent past. Ugh....
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    I found a 2-yo boy missing from Gary, IN on 7-25-15. Gary is not far from Chicago. I'll have to go back and get more info. I think he was with an adult aunt who had some problems.

    Here's a link to the WS forum on this case:
