Legs found in garbage over 4 months ago still not identified

The victim whose legs were sawed off and thrown into the garbage nearly five months ago still has not been identified.

Two black female legs were found at a South Side waste collection center on March 28. Police have been able to narrow her age down to 30-something using information from her bone, reports The Dispatch.


But as far as the victim’s DNA goes, it doesn’t match with any that was brought in by a loved one searching for a missing person.

The Bureau of Criminal Investigation is contemplating starting a campaign to round up more leads. So far, the only one they’ve got is the boots she was wearing; size 10 JustFab brown snow boots with fur lining (similar to the pair pictured above). The style of boot is called Teigarhorn.

Call Columbus homicide at 614-645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-TIPS if you have any information about this case.
