Chicago investigators are still unsure why a severed human leg ended up on the shores of Lake Michigan. The identity, gender, or age of the victim is unknown.
The Cook County medical examiner will X-ray the human leg and conduct tests to learn more about the identity of the victim.
Shockingly, the incident marks the second discovery of human remains discovered from the Great Lakes. On May 22, a bag of human remains was found floating near Yonge Street of Toronto, Canada.
Toronto authorities identified the remains as female though the identity has not been confirmed.
