    I tried to research the socks and could not find anything concrete on when they might have been produced. One thing I did note was the uniqueness of the Flag Logo. Other vintage items of Ralph Lauren clothing (i.e. T-Shirts mostly) that have an American Flag Logo where the stars are replaced by an RL are labeled online as being produced in the 1990's or pre-2000. The RL Flag socks for sale in stores today have an American flag with stars and RL is written under the flag instead. These legs could be from someone missing in the 1990's or early 2000's. Or they could belong to someone who bought their socks second hand or held onto their socks for nearly 2 decades.

    MOO.

    Montoursville native in custody; human remains found in Philly | News, Sports, Jobs - Williamsport Sun-Gazette

    The KYW Radio website reported that when troopers went to the storage locker, “they found the partial remains of a woman in a box.” KYW reported that a source told them “the victim’s legs had been removed.”

    However, 3CBS Philly reported on their website Tuesday night that police sources believe that the remains are those of Brenda Jacobs, a former girlfriend of Babcock’s who was reported missing from her Williamsport home back in 2003.

    Brenda Jacobs was from Williamsport so the fact that the legs were found there does indeed add up. If she’s been missing 16 years though wouldn’t someone have found the legs sooner? Or were they placed there more recently?

    Investigators here are trying to determine if the remains discovered at the storage facility are at all connected with the “mummified” legs fishermen discovered on the north shore (the city side) of the Susquehanna River between the Hepburn Street pump station and Maynard Street on May 11. A left and right leg were discovered on the shore about 75 yards apart.

    Since he confessed to the murder I’m wondering if they’ve asked him about the legs? Did he likely deny it?

    Man admits killing woman in 2003, cutting off her legs and tossing them in Susquehanna: police

    September 24, 2019

    WILLIAMSPORT — A former Montoursville man was charged with homicide Tuesday after police say he confessed to killing a woman in 2003, hiding her body, and 15 years later cutting off her legs so her body would fit into a wooden box, a state police affidavit says.

    Just before he moved to Philadelphia in April, 49-year-old Jade G. Babcock told police he cut open the bag into which he’d put the legs, and threw it into the Susquehanna River from the Maynard Street bridge in Wiliamsport, the affidavit said. Investigators said he told them he’d hoped hoped the water would fill the bag and carry away the legs.

    [...]

    In the affidavit, state police say Babcock confessed to killing Brenda Lee Jacobs, of Lycoming County, on Dec. 26, 2003. He kept her body wrapped in a comforter in a closet for several months before moving it to a coal bin in a structure at the rear of the property on Jordan Avenue in Montoursville.

    He told police he cut the legs off with a hack saw last November, the affidavit said. He kept them in a black bag in a storage facility in Williamsport, before throwing them in the river in April, police said.

    Fishermen on May 11 found the legs about a half mile downstream of the bridge, near the Hepburn Street dam. A black plastic bag and a white sheet were found nearby.

    He kept her body wrapped in a closet for months and then 16 years later he cut off her legs and threw them in the river.o_O. horrific. I can’t understand at all... it’s just a freaking nightmare. At least her family can (kinda) get some closure now..:(:mad:
