[ARTICLE] Man finds human leg in smoker purchased at auction

Man finds human leg in smoker purchased at auction
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MAIDEN, North Carolina - Police say a North Carolina man opened up a smoker he bought at auction and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper.

When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off about six centimetres above the knee.

The smoker had been sold at an auction of items left behind at a storage facility, so investigators contacted the mother and son who had rented the space where the smoker was found.

The mother explained her son had his leg amputated after a plane crash and kept the leg following the surgery (most children would have settled for a lollipop).

The mother says her son plans to drive to Maiden, about 55 kilometres northwest of Charlotte, to reclaim his amputated leg.

That is really weird. I wouldn't keep the leg but to each his own. My question, why was it in a smoker? Shouldn't it have been in a freezer or formaldehyde?

I'm not sure. I had to PAY to have my foot disposed of. I saw it on the Bill where I paid over $1,000 just for them to chuck my foot in the incenerator.

If it were up to me, that smoker would be on craigslist by now.
