Searchers find child's head, other remains in Garfield Park lagoon | Chicago Sun-Times

Ald. Jason Ervin, (28th), said investigators told him the victim was likely 2 to 4 years old. Kids that age would be noticed by relatives or neighbors if they went missing, Ervin said Sunday.

"It is unthinkable that someone would dismember a child and throw them into the lagoon," he said.

"My main concern is that this is not a larger incident," Ervin said Sunday afternoon while addressing reporters yards from the lagoon.

"I would hope and pray that it's just one child," he said. "But I don't think anyone can answer that definitively at this point."

"I am not aware of any missing children right now. I would just hope the people in the community or across the city would just know that a child is not around from a relative or family member or neighbor and make that call to 911," Ervin said. "I don't believe that there is need for widespread alarm throughout the community in its entirety."
