On Thursday October 21, 2010 just before 2:00 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the area of 121 st Street and Metcalf on suspicious activity call. The officer was informed by the police dispatchers a motorist saw a bloody foot hanging from the trunk of a car.
The investigating officer contacted the citizen who saw and reported the incident. This person told the officer she was sure the foot was part of a child’s severed leg. She described the vehicle and provided the car’s license plate number. A vehicle registration check was made and the officer went to the registered owner’s home but could not locate anyone immediately. Later that afternoon another officer returned to the house and made contact with the car’s owner. This officer immediately determined the “severed foot” was a Halloween decoration. Just another example of the calls for service officers receive and must be investigated.
