CHICAGO (AP) — A sketch artist is examining a toddler’s head that was found in a Chicago lagoon in the hopes of creating a drawing that can be used to identify the child.
Police said at a news conference Wednesday the Cook County Sheriff’s Department artist will create a drawing that police can show to the community in the hopes someone will recognize the toddler. The child’s hands, feet and head were discovered in a lagoon at Garfield Park over the weekend.
Police also say DNA tests are being conducted and the hands will be fingerprinted.
Police are draining the lagoon in search of the child’s other remains. They believe the body parts were thrown into the lagoon a week or two ago.
