    Severed feet found on street in Matteson [IL]




    October 14, 2007
    BY DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter/drozek@suntimes.com
    Two women walking found a pair of severed human feet Friday night on the street at a south suburban intersection, Cook County authorities said Saturday.
    The socks-clad feet -- apparently from a white male -- were discovered about 9:30 p.m. at Keystone Avenue and Vollmer Road in Matteson, the Cook County medical examiner's office said. The Sheriff's Department is investigating.

    OMG! Like I have said before on the other foot that was found...at least they know his shoe size and can narrow the field of missing people.

    But who in the world goes around chopping off people's feet ?!?! And WHY?!

    Maybe someone chopped up the body and some of the 'parts' fell out of the bag.

    It seems kind of ridiculous for someone to cut the feet (from the knees down) off the body and ditch them somewhere else. Instead of cutting up the whole body.. Either a lazy murderer or maybe the feet where ditched where they were so that someone would look for the body. Sounds like whoever did this wanted the body to be found. It's not as if they did it so it couldn't be identified..

    Authorities Tuesday located a burned sedan and two people possibly connected to the death of a man whose body was found miles from where his legs were severed in an apparent hit-and-run accident in unincorporated Matteson.

    You have to know that something led to the hit and run. Drunk driving, speeding, recklessness. Why else would they try to hide what they did?
