Body parts wash ashore Beach near Olympic Volleyball Venue

Problems continued on Wednesday when human body parts, including a foot and other remains washed ashore a beach near the venue for the upcoming Olympic volleyball tournaments in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. 

Police reportedly have no further details about the recently discovered, mutilated body parts.  According to Reuters, the discovery was made by a Rio street vendor, who reported his findings to a newspaper.

Along with a variety of other setbacks, the city has faced an uptick in localized violence since a drug trafficker escaped from a Brazilian hospital over a week ago, engaging in multiple gun battles across the city's slums, as authorities attempt to recapture him, the AP reports.
