A severed head and other body parts were found inside a garbage bag floating in the McKinley Park lagoon Friday morning on the South Side.

The human remains were found about 10 a.m. at the park at 2210 W. Pershing, according to Chicago Police.

A Chicago Park District worker found the bag during a routine clean-up and discovered the man’s head and other body parts inside, a source said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed the death but did not immediately have more details.

Area Central detectives are conducting a death investigation.
