A grisly discovery was made at Buena Vista Lake Saturday morning: a human leg washed up on the shore, according to sheriff's officials. 

Homicide detectives and a coroner investigator arrived and collected the leg and are continuing to investigate, according to the Sheriff's Office. The victim's gender and identity are unknown. 

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Kern County Sheriff’s Office at 861-3110 or Secret Witness at 322-4040.
