Police were called to the 4700 block of South Lake Shore Drive about 2:42 p.m. for what appeared to be a human leg, said Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.
The leg, which was severed at the hip, was found among rocks at the shore, said a spokesman from the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
No other body parts were found at the scene, the spokesman said.
The case is being pursued as a death investigation, Zala said.
