A Hand-Me-Down Hand

A painter working in an old house in Waldoboro, Maine, discovered a severed hand that had been passed down in a family for decades.

Police concluded that the hand had been ripped off 50 to 80 years ago. They also seized the hand because it's illegal to possess such a body part.

The previous owner claimed she had gotten the hand from a man down the road, who is now in his 80s and remembers his father having the hand.

"She had heard it was from a farming accident," [contractor Bo] Jespersen said. [Link]
I'm proud to say that this took place about 35 miles from where I'm now sitting.

This story reminds me of the mummy baby. What is it with these people??

Let's not forget the story of Spaghetti, the Italian mummy kept in a North Carolina garage for 61 years.
