A day after part of a woman's body was found in a Paris park, investigators discovered more body parts, including a head. The body parts were found during a targeted search in an inaccessible part of the park, investigators said on Tuesday. The victim has not yet been identified.
The day before, city officials found a plastic bag containing a woman's severed torso in a pile of garden waste. The police immediately cordoned off the park, which is popular with joggers and families. The victim was wearing jeans with a flower motif. There was initially no information about the time of death. The Crime Brigade has launched an investigation.
The site is near a home where the body of a 12-year-old girl was found in a plastic box in October. A 24-year-old Algerian woman has been charged with murder and is being held in custody.
Park Buttes-Chaumont in Paris' 19th arrondissement is used by many families and joggers. It was planned in the 19th century in the style of English landscape gardens on the railings of former quarries. Several rocks, a grotto with a waterfall and a lake were artificially created.
