Report: Part of a man's leg discovered along the East River



There are published reports that part of a man's leg was found washed up along the East River near the FDR and Sixth Street.

Someone spotted the leg (from the knee down) around 11:30 a.m.

Per the Daily News:

It was not immediately disclosed if a foot was attached to the extremity, which was brought to the city Medical Examiner’s office. Further tests will be done to try to determine who the leg belonged to and how it became separated from the person’s body.

And via NBC 4:

Details remain scarce at this point, but an NYPD spokesperson said, "When you find a leg in the water, that's suspicious in itself."

And everyone was wondering where the Crusties got all that meat for their big barbecue in East River Park last summer. Now we know.

Part of me says this is horrible and bizarre. The other part of me says, this is even news in New York?

But, these days, it has become news. Shows how much the city has changed since the old days.

@John

There have been about a dozen bodies found floating in the rivers in the past year. Bad days have returned.
