Auditing systemctl to see which service started a pid [SOLVED]

I found an instance of /usr/bin/sleep running by my root user.  Through some detective work, I found that one of my systemd service units calls a script which therein runs /usr/bin/sleep.  Is there systemctl function I can use to track a pid back to the unit that initiated it?
