OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Searchers found an arm Wednesday morning in the same remote area where other body parts were found on the Nisqually Indian Reservation, about 45 miles south of Seattle.
Thurston County coroner Gary Warnock says he was notified of the find about 10 a.m. as sheriff’s deputies continue searching around an old fish hatchery in a wooded area along the Nisqually River.
All the body parts have been found within a mile of each other and may have been scattered by animals.
The search began after a dog brought a leg to its owner on Nov. 5.
Searchers last weekend found a rib cage, pelvis and part of a skull, including a jawbone with teeth.
Warnock says the parts appear to come from the same adult.
