Foot Mailed to Canada’s Conservatives; Human Remains Found in Montreal
Canadian police say they’re looking for possible connections between the discovery of severed body parts in two cities, including what appears to be a human foot mailed to the headquarters of the ruling Conservative Party.
The grisly find in an office tower in Ottawa on Tuesday came the same day that a janitor found human remains — but not a full human body — behind an apartment building in Montreal, about 200 km (160 miles) away.
Police also confirmed late Tuesday the discovery of a second human body part in Ottawa. No other details were immediately available.
“It would be foolish for us to disregard what is going on in Montreal,” Constable Marc Soucy, an Ottawa police spokesman, told CNN. But both Soucy and Constable Daniel Fortier, his counterpart in Montreal, said there was no known connection between the incidents Tuesday night.
“‘It’s too soon to make any links between those two events,” Fortier said.
