Decomposed leg washes up along Delaware River

NATIONAL PARK -- The lower part of a person's decomposed leg was discovered Sunday after washed up along the shoreline of the Delaware River in Gloucester County, authorities said.

A woman found the limb while walking her dog in National Park. The foot was attached to the limb, the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release.

No clothing and no markings were found.

The leg was taken to the Gloucester County Medical Examiner's Office where a DNA sample will be collected in an effort to make an identification.

West Deptford police are assisting the prosecutor's office in the investigation. National Park has a shared services agreement with West Deptford to provide police services.
