Mystery of the lost leg solved

MENASHA, Wis. (AP) - August 18, 2011

Someone spotted a foot sticking out of the garbage.

It turns out it was part of a prosthetic leg, which was turned over to police in Menasha.

Officer Aaron Zemlock tells a local paper a new homeowner contacted police about the leg.

The man said the artificial leg had been left in the house he bought and he threw it away.

Zemlock says for now, police will probably hold on to the prosthetic limb.
