What do you do when you find a severed leg at the beach?

Severed human leg washes up on Chicago beach

Jun 06 2013 
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago authorities are investigating after a human leg was discovered on a Lake Michigan beach on the city's South Side.
Authorities tell the Chicago Sun-Times ( ) that the leg had been severed from the rest of the body at the hip.
It was found by someone walking near rocks on Wednesday afternoon.
The Cook County medical examiner's office plans to X-ray the limb and conduct an external inspection of it Thursday.
Anyone with a missing leg in the Chicago metro area was encouraged to contact the medical examiner's office.

  2. One would think, Pam.
