Police have found two bags of human remains at a Bronx park, just days after body parts were found in plastic bags at another park in the borough.

Authorities say they got a 911 call after 7 p.m. for what they believe are human remains found inside a black bag inside Barretto Point Park in Hunts Point. Officers found two bags containing remains.

Last Friday, a parks department employee at Crotona Park, about three miles north of Barretto Point Park, called 911 after finding two bags of what turned out to be human remains near the entrance to the park. Police released a sketch of the woman Saturday, and are asking the public's help identifying her.

The city medical examiner's office is determining the cause of death in both incidents.

It's not clear if the two cases are somehow connected.
