    "A crew repairing a sanitary sewer in Sterling Heights have discovered what appear to be human body parts.

    The suspected remains, 12 pieces, became caught on a metal grate, which workers were using for their repair operations 50 feet below the surface."

    Maintenance crew finds body parts in Sterling Heights sewer line
    By Serena Maria Daniels
    The Detroit News

    Sterling Heights A crew hired to perform maintenance on a Macomb County sewer line discovered a dozen body parts Wednesday morning.

    Authorities at this point have but one detail, a tattoo on one of the body parts, that they hope will shed light on the identity of the remains, Sterling Heights Police Lt. Luke Riley told reporters at the site at 15 Mile and Maple Lane...

    I looked at the photos of the tattoos. I thought maybe the type of tattoo might help determine if the person was male or female. Some parts of it look almost like a butterfly (to me). That would make me think the body parts belonged to a female.

    Can anyone else tell what exactly the tattoo is of?

    I thought maybe the tattoo was a dragon when I looked at it last night, but it's too hard to be sure. Now that you say butterfly, I can kind of see that as a possibility, too.

    An Expert's Opinion

    "...We took the photos to the Tattoo Gallery in Sterling Heights where Somo took a look.

    Many pieces are missing, but at first glance he thought Japanese or Chinese dragon, but as he tried to put the images together like a puzzle, he started to compare the tattoo to the Grim Reaper.

    Whatever it is, he believed the tattoo artist will know, calling the body marking elaborate and unique..."

    This article has details about the sewer line they were found in. It serves 833,000 and is gravity fed. The parts were not there Tuesday. I hope that information can help them narrow down the furthest they could have come from.
    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    Gene Schabath, Deputy Public Works Commissioner for Macomb County, told WWJ that there appeared to be several different body parts measuring about six inches in length.

    “Between 10 and 15, and they don’t know where they came from. I mean, in terms of the body — arm, leg or whatever,” Schabath said.

    One part reportedly has a tattoo

    On Thursday, the department released photos of some of the pieces, which are marked with what appears to be part of a tattoo. Police have not said if the parts came from one or more people and have given no hint as to the gender or identity of the body or bodies.

    Investigators say they don't believe the parts had been in the sewer very long.

    If those pieces are from the same tattoo, and it's possible considering they were found together, my first thought is something like a fairy. That would account for the curly, wispy part that looks like hair and the butterfly-like wings (assuming they even are wings.) That's just a wild guess on my part and fairies are far from uncommon tattoos.
