The head of a woman has been found in a Paris park today following yesterday’s discovery of a bloody lower torso inside a plastic bag.
The gruesome discoveries were made in a wooded area of the Buttes-Chaumont park, a popular spot for families and joggers in the 19th district of Paris.
Police have opened a murder inquiry and the park has been closed off as investigations continue.
A source close to the investigation said yesterday’s grim discovery appeared to be the pelvic area of a woman within a blood-soaked plastic bag.
This morning the decapitated head was found beside a train line within the grounds of the park.

The mayor of the 19th district, François Dagnaud confirmed that it was park workers who had found the remains.
The location is rather remote within the 61-acre park in an area usually used by workers for storage that is not generally known to the public.
A park official yesterday discovered the human remains of a blood-drenched body that had been cut below the chest to the knees.
Police were immediately notified and carried out a detailed search of the entire park as forensic experts worked to identify the dismembered body part.
The identity of the deceased person is unknown, but Le Parisien said a police source told them it is likely a woman from Europe or North Africa. They said she was wearing floral patterned jeans.
A source close to the investigation also told the Paris newspaper that ‘the corpse was not in a state of putrefaction, which seems to attest to a recent death’.
Investigators will now trawl through CCTV footage surrounding the vast park and its ten entrances to try and identify a perpetrator.
The newly discovered head will also undergo an autopsy today as authorities try to piece together the gruesome crime.
