TORONTO (AP) - Police in Canada say they have found a severed human head in a park near Toronto, close to the spot where a human foot was found earlier in the day.
Peel police Acting Insp. Randy Cowan says officers discovered the foot Thursday morning in the Credit River in Mississauga.
Cowan says it's not clear whether the foot belongs to a man or a woman, but investigators believe it was severed in recent weeks. Police have not said if the foot and head are from the same person.
A human head was found in a Montreal park in July belonging to Jun Lin, a Chinese student who was killed and dismembered in May. Canadian porn actor Luka Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in that case.
