A bitten off human hand was found lying on the lawn at a holiday resort in Ustronie Morskie (West Pomeranian Voivodeship). According to investigators, there was no murder. The tests will determine when exactly the person to whom the limb belonged died.
A macabre discovery was made on Thursday at one of the properties in Ustronie Morskie. According to prosecutor Ryszard Gąsiorowski, spokesman for the District Prosecutor’s Office in Koszalin, the owner of one of the holiday centers found a human hand while tidying up the area around one of the houses. There were no holidaymakers at the resort at that time.
The police were called to the scene.
– Preliminary investigation findings show that the hand was bitten off the body by animals – said the prosecutor.
It’s most likely the hand of a homeless person
As the spokesman said, the most likely scenario is that the hand belonged to a homeless or missing person who died of natural causes. According to the prosecutor, it is unlikely that a murder occurred.
The limb was secured for examination. He is in a state of decomposition, but investigators have not yet determined the exact time of death.
