Grisly: human legs found in plastic bag

2010-10-08 00:00

POLICE are puzzling over the macabre find of the skeletal remains of a person’s lower legs found wedged inside a pair of black ankle boots in a black plastic bag recently.

The bag had been left at the side of the road near the Highthorn Farm along the old Wartburg road near Cramond. Next to the grisly scene, police found a faded gold ring.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Joey Jeevan said an inquest docket has been registered and the bones will be sent to the SAPF forensics department in Pretoria for analysis. Police yesterday appealed to anyone with information about the discovery to contact the investigating officer Detective Constable Sipho Ndlovu of the Cramond Detective Services at 033 569 1666 or 083 946 8565, or Crime Stop at the toll-free number 08600 10111.
