Man Buys Auctioned Items...Finds Human Leg

The owner of a storage facility auctioned off abandoned items
Tuesday, and among them was a smoker. The man who purchased the smoker opened it up and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg.

Police determined the leg went from the foot to about 2-3 inches
above the knee. Investigators traced the smoker back to the original owners of the storage unit and contacted the mother and son.

The mother explained her son had his leg amputated after a plane
crash and kept the leg following the surgery. The mother said her
son plans to drive to Maiden to reclaim his amputated leg.
