MENASHA, Wis. (AP) – Police in Wisconsin are puzzled that no one has come forward to claim this lost-and-found item.
Menasha police officer Aaron Zemlock says one might think a prosthetic leg would be vitally important to its owner. And Zemlock says the prosthesis isn’t cheap, typically costing several thousand dollars.
So for now, the leg with its black shoe, remains in the police department’s evidence garage. A woman had called police Aug. 4 after finding the leg. Police aren’t sure if it was misplaced, stolen, or discarded. But, Zemlock tells the Appleton Post-Crescent they don’t plan to go looking for its owner. They’ll wait until someone comes forward to claim it.
