A beach-goer found human body parts right by the Olympic Beach Volleyball Arena on Rio's famous Copacabana Beach. 

According to CNN, a dismembered foot and another unidentified body parts were found. Military police officer, Andre Luiz, said he thinks that the victim was a young adult or a woman. The cause of death of the person is still unknown.
