SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police say three adult body parts – including a foot – have been found in a homeowner’s recycling bin.

Sgt. Mike Renner tells The Seattle Times that detectives are investigating the discovery made by the homeowner at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Police say the body parts had been packaged and placed in the bin sometime late Friday or on Saturday. The bin had been emptied of recyclables Friday.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has the body parts and is attempting to determine an identity.

Renner says the parts were “fresh.”

Police say they searched other bins in the area but found nothing of note.
