MAIDEN, N.C. (AP) — People leave some interesting things behind in a storage facility. Just ask the Maiden police, who say this is one of the strangest cases they've ever seen. The owner of a storage facility auctioned off abandoned items today, 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.
