Bone in a shoe: Guesome find
A worker recently found a bone inside a woman’s shoe along the Merrimack River, West Newbury, Massachuesetts. The bone has been sent to the medical examiner’s office to determine whether it is human. Despite no recent reports of missing persons in the area the discovery prompted a police search along the riverbank. The worker was picking up some of the estimated 4 to 8 million wastewater plastic disks accidentally discharged from a Hooksett, N.H., sewage treatment plant last month when he found the shoe.
