Update 2 Human Remains Found

Tuesday, November 24, 2009 4:00 PM

For Immediate Release:

 The Sutter County Sheriff's Detectives are continuing their investigation into a severed leg found on Sunday, November 22, 2009, in the river bottom area of Garden Hwy and Lee road (also known as Beer Can Beach).

In consultation with forensic pathologist and other medical examiners, it has been determined that there are several indicators that the severed leg was in fact excised as a result of a medical procedure.  The Sheriff's Department has also been advised that some hospitals retain pathological specimens in a frozen state up to six months before disposal.

Sheriff's Detectives have checked with hospitals and surgical centers in the Yuba Sutter area with negative results.  They are expanding their inquiry to all Valley Hospitals to determine if any such medical procedures have been performed.

Anyone with information regarding a medical procedure as described is urged to contact the Sutter County Sheriff's Department at (530) 822-7307.

Contact Person and Telephone Number:

Lieutenant Butah Uppal at (530) 822-7307
