A dismembered body was found in the Schuylkill River in Southwest Philadelphia on Monday night.
The body was discovered floating face down near Bartram's Garden Dock and Community Boathouse around 7 p.m., NBC10 reports.
"What's unusual is that both of the victim's legs were cut off at the upper thighs," Chief Inspector Scott Small told 6ABC. "The body also seems to have some trauma to the head and face."
Police are investigating the death and examining the possibility that the person's legs were severed on train tracks.
