Just before 9 a.m. this morning, someone was walking near Pelican Harbor -- the water next to the 79th Street Causeway -- when they noticed a bag bobbing in the murk.
Something didn't look right, so they called 911. Miami Police pulled out the bag around 11 a.m. Inside, they found human remains, Officer Kenia Alfonso, an MPD spokesman says.
Police aren't saying just what was in the bag, or whether the victim's age or gender are apparent. Divers are out in the harbor right now, combing the bottom for clues, Alfonso says.
