Nisqually Reservation, Wash., resident Bill Flowers, 93, found a severed human leg after his dog Liberty dragged it home.
He buried the leg in his backyard, and didn't call police until four days later at the urging of his daughter. Flowers told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer he didn't report the incident immediately because he was scared he might be accused of murdering the person.
Thurston County Sheriff’s detectives put a GPS collar on Liberty, hoping she would lead them to the rest of the body. But it was search and rescue dogs who found more remains—a pelvis and rib cage in the woods at the Nisqually Tribe's old fish hatchery.
Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock said a pathologist will look at the remains to determine if it is a man or woman and what instrument or tools were used to dismember the body.
