A human body part believed to be the remains of a murder victim has been discovered in a Leicestershire field.
Unconfirmed reports indicated officers had recovered a severed head near woodland in Asfordby, Melton.
The discovery was made by a man out walking at about 1.30pm yesterday.
Detectives are investigating whether the find is linked to two other body parts found in other parts of the country.
On Monday, a forearm was found on a grass verge in Hertfordshire – 12 miles from where a leg was found in a holdall on Sunday, March 22.
Another homeowner described how a police helicopter was hovering above the 20-acre common for most of Sunday. He added: 'It sounds like somebody is just throwing these bits out around the county. There are some scary people out there. It's quite chilling.
yeah that made me chuckle (or roll my eyes, same thing in context) But no, this is definatly not a prank. Looks like some kind of either ritual, or a failed attempt at hiding a murder victim. Where the head was found, is a very long way away in comparisson to where the leg and arm were found. They also think the arm had been moved by something, as it had been nibbled.

This is definately not a prank, theres been a fair bit in the news recently about body parts being found.
What makes me laugh is that they say things like "A human body part believed to be the remains of a murder was discovered".
What else could it be when you find a severed head? Do they think someone could have left it there by accident whilst on a picnic?

An initial murder inquiry was sparked when a left leg and foot attached was found in a green hold-all in a lay-by on the A507 in Cottered, Hertfordshire, on March 22.
On March 29, an arm, dismembered at the elbow and wrist, was discovered on a grass verge in Wheathampstead, about a 40-minute drive from Cottered.
Two days later, in Asfordby, Leicestershire - about 95 miles from Wheathampstead via the M1 and A606 - a head was discovered.
Examinations confirmed the head, arm and leg had all belonged to the same man.
Police have said since it is "highly likely" that a right leg found near the A10 Puckeridge bypass in Hertfordshire on April 7 came from the same man.
