News outlets are reporting that an Ottawa coroner has confirmed a package delivered Tuesday to the Conservative Party of Canada's headquarters in downtown Ottawa contained a human foot.Authorities say they were called to the Tory offices at Albert Street at 11:20am.
"Upon arrival, officers noted that the ... package had blood stains on it," the Ottawa Police Service said in a release, according to the Globe and Mail.
"The Hazmat Unit and Emergency Operations section were called and upon further inspection of the package it was determined that there was possibly a human foot in the box," the police said.
CBC News is reporting that the package was delivered through Canada Post and police will be tracking its origin.
Meanwhile, the RCMP and Montreal police are also investigating the discovery of a human torso in a pile of garbage in the Côte-des-Neiges borough, west of Décarie Boulevard and checking to see if there is any link to the package found in Ottawa.
