Severed Arm Found In Golden Gate Park, Body Located

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — A dog walker made a gruesome discovery Sunday afternoon in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park when he happened upon a severed human arm near the polo fields, according to a police sergeant.

Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said police were called to Middle Drive and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on the south side of the polo fields at 4:16 p.m.

“A man was walking with his dog, and he discovered a human arm,” Andraychak said. “It was described as being skeletal.”

The man called police, and responding officers located a human body in some nearby bushes.

“There were obvious signs of decomposition,” Andraychak said. The body is only described as that of an unidentified male.

The investigation is not considered criminal at this point, pending the results of the medical examiner’s investigation, Andraychak said.

    It’s not cool at all. I’m sad for the person who died… someone loves that person, and no one should end up in such a position. What led up to their death? It’s horrible. My heart goes out to him/her. I am sorry this happened. 😦

    in response to the two insensitive idiots that are of nothing more than negative 0 IQ and cliche wit… be thankful you can channel your idiocy through this medium which ironically only serves to highlight your pathetic disposition. Your lack of tact and moral bearing incenses me to the degree… well lets just suffice to say your keyboard renders you lucky… you ever open your mouth with some stupidity like that around me you’ll wish you hadn’t. Get a life. Your a pathetic excuse of a person, wasted space @ best.
