Custody Battle Erupts Over Leg Found In Barbecue Smoker

A man who stored his severed leg in a barbecue smoker that was later auction off is locked in a custody dispute with the man who found it.

Shannon Whisnant, of Maiden, NC, found John Wood's severed leg in a used smoker he bought last week at an auction. Wood's leg was cut off near the knee after an airplane crash in 2004. He had been storing it in the smoker at a storage center.

Whisnant says he might be able to charge people to look at
the leg.
