Severed Limb Found on Sacramento River Bottom

SUTTER COUNTY, CA - An autopsy was scheduled for later Monday on the discovery of a human limb found Sunday at so-called "Beer Can Beach" in Sutter County.

The Sutter County Sheriff's Department said people playing paintball in the river bottom area at Garden Highway and Lee Road called in the finding around noon.

Sheriff's investigators determined the severed remains were human, said spokeswoman Brenda Baker, but it was not yet known if they were male or female.

Monday, sheriff's deputies, search and cadaver dogs were back in the area of the discovery, looking for clues, said Baker.

The Sacramento Police Department is investigating a missing person's case in which the last known sighting of the individual was several miles from the remains' discovery, according to Sgt. Norm Leong. It was not known if there is any connection between the two incidents.
