TAMPA — More body parts were found in McKay Bay on Friday, police said, and investigators are seeking help to identify the person who died, based on a tattoo just below their lower right calf.

The additional body parts were found just before noon Friday, according to a news release from the Tampa Police Department. The death investigation began Thursday after fishermen spotted a human body part in the water near the 22nd Street Causeway Bridge and called police.

“If you saw anything that you thought was suspicious in and around this area, we’d like for someone to call us,” interim Tampa police Chief Ruben “Butch” Delgado said at a news conference Friday night. “Come forward and give us any bit of information you have.”

Delgado said the Police Department is working with other agencies to look for additional body parts.

Tips can be reported to the department’s non-emergency line at 813-231-6130 or Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay at 800-873-TIPS.
