A weighted package containing what appears to be a man's torso has been found on a beach near Sydney Airport.
A group of people cleaning up at Cook Park in Kyeemagh Beach near Brighton Le Sands found a suspicious package wrapped in a sheet today.
Forensic police officers were called to examine the find and a crime scene was established.
The item in the package has been formally identified as human and an investigation into the matter is now under way at Glebe morgue, police say.

The torso is reportedly male.
