Sunnyvale police are bewildered by a Sunday morning grisly discovery: a bag of body parts left on a sidewalk in a quiet neighborhood.

Someone called police at about 10:10 a.m. on Sunday to report they had found a garbage bag that looked as if a body was lying in it. The bag had been placed between two bushes near a home filled on Ticonderoga Drive, according to NBC.

When police arrived, they saw blood on the bag. When they looked inside, they reportedly found a "body part."

Santa Clara Crime Lab technicians and the coroner arrived at the scene to collect the evidence. They have not yet determined the cause of death or the gender of the victim.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
