Police said a skull and what could be human remains have been found in a garbage bag at a Queens park.

When workers were at Peters Field Park in Hillside, Queens, on Thursday afternoon, they uncovered the garbage bag along a park fence, NBC reported.

"It's really unfortunate that we have to find a bag full of bones, a skull or whatever is in the bag, you know in a child's park. It's a good park," nearby resident Camar Richardson said to ABC.

Forensic anthropologists are now assessing the bag’s contents, ABC added.

The NYPD is also investigating the discovery, CBS added in a related report.

"I hope whoever it is — they find the family. … I pray for them," Richardson said to ABC.
