INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - Authorities plan to send divers into a western Missouri river where a kayaker came across a human hand.
Independence police say the discovery was made about 4 p.m. Monday in the Little Blue River, near the Little Blue Trace Trail in eastern Jackson County. The trail runs for 11 miles along the river.
KCTV reports Monday's discovery occurred several miles south of where fishermen found the remains of a missing woman in 2007. The hand that was found Monday was described as decomposed.
