Parts of toddler's dismembered body found in Chicago park

Detectives investigating a lagoon at a Chicago park where dismembered body parts of a young child were discovered waded through cattail reeds and waist-high water Sunday, hoping to find more clues about the victim's identity.

A dog with a K-9 unit sniffed though shrubbery, branches and boulders on the edge of Garfield Park on the city's west side, while investigators felt the muddy lagoon bottom with their hands.

The search began Saturday afternoon after someone reported seeing what turned out to be a left foot floating in the lagoon. Officers later found a decomposed right foot and a hand about 25 yards away, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.
