    Police have not been able to identify the gender or race of who the legs belong to. They did release a photo today of a boot that was on the leg. It is a size 10 boot with feathers on it by JustFab. Based on my research it appears to be a Teigarhorn model. Police also seem to think there is a good chance that the legs were in a cardboard dumpster someone in Northwest Columbus prior to being discovered by workers at Local Waste.

    I know sometimes shoe size has no bearing, but a lot of time it does and size 10 is pretty big.

    Police Release Picture Of Shoes Found With Human Legs Discovered In South Columbus Trash Facility

    According to Columbus police, the trash truck that carried the legs to the facility made at least 20 stops in the northwest Columbus area.

    The legs were picked up sometime between March 21 and March 28.

    Police: Legs Found In South Columbus Waste Facility Came From Northwest Side Dumpster

    Authorities also revealed a boot that was on one of the victim's feet.

    Sgt. Stan Latta said the brand is Just Fab and is a size 10.

    Just Fab is a subscription-based company that delivers shoes on a monthly basis.

    The model appears to be the "Teigarhorn."

    Police Release Photo Of Shoe To Help Identify Victim After Legs Found In Trash

    Investigators call this a very tough case; a homicide in which they don't have the identity of the victim, or at this point, even a race or gender.

    They said the only items found with the dismembered body parts were pants and a distinctive looking shoe.

    Other new information released Friday: the legs were in separate containers and appeared to have been sawed off.

    Based on the truck that delivered the load the legs were found in, it's believed they came from a dumpster somewhere in the northwest part of Columbus.

    Police Hope Boots Lead To Identity Of Legs Found At Trash Plant

    JustFab boots, size 10 women’s, brown with a fur lining.

    Even the gender of the person — likely female — is only a good guess because of the style of the boots.

    Because decomposition had begun, the race, gender and age of the legs’ owner can’t be determined.

    I hope they're scouring the area on the truck's roots for the rest of this poor soul.

    Oh man. Such a grisly find. I hope they find the victim. It appears to me that maybe the person hasn't been reported missing yet.
    Quite terrifying.

    All moo.

    The only time a missing person is mentioned on the Columbus television stations is when it involves an endangered juvenile or senior citizen that is missing. I haven't heard any news reports from the Columbus news media as far as missing adults are concerned.

    two human legs found in separate plastic bags last week are African-American and may belong to a woman.
    The remains are believed to have been left in a dumpster in northwest Columbus between March 21 and March 28.

    I believe the woman has to be closer to 5'11 with a size 10 shoe. My best friend is 5'11 and she is a size 91/2 to 10 shoe. I am 5'2 and wear a 6 1/2 to 7 shoe.

    While there are small women with big feet, I'm inclined to agree that she's probably toward the taller end of the estimated range.

    I'm 5'6" and size 8.5-9. My sister is 5'9" and wears size 10. I've also "borrowed" my sisters shoes for an evening if they are particularly cute.

    In the US, that is always a possibility. Legal, illegal, tourist, temporary worker--there are millions of possibilities.
