At slightly before 10 AM on November 27th, a man was working his field in the village of Minamimaki in Nagano Prefecture when he discovered a human leg that had been severed slightly above the knee. The man, who had been using agricultural machinery to dig up the field, contacted police after the discovery.
Police have begun working on trying to identify the owner of the leg. That afternoon, police began combing the area in hopes of finding the rest of the body, however, it is still unknown whether they were able to find anything.
Although not much is known at the moment this definitely seems like someone’s failed attempt to hide a body. I’ll keep an eye on any further developments and post an update when more information becomes available.
