CLAREMONT, Bronx (WABC) -- The NYPD has released a sketch of the woman whose remains were discovered in two bags in the Bronx.
The bags were discovered by a Parks Department employee near Crotona Park South and Franklin Avenue in Claremont on Friday afternoon.
Police are hoping someone will recognize the woman -- and can help identify her.
The parks employee called his boss to report the suspicious bags, and they originally thought the remains may have been a dead dog. When they both started to open the bags, they saw hair and called the police.
Police responded to the scene and confirmed that there was a human body in the bags.
The Medical Examiner is working to determine the cause of death.
