The case of the leg in the lake remains a mystery. 

A post-mortem examination has been performed on a human leg found last month in Buena Vista Lake, the coroner's office said Friday, but cause and manner of death remain unknown, as does to whom it belonged.

A forensic pathologist will conduct further studies on the limb.

The leg was found washed up on the shore the morning of July 28. A sheriff's search and rescue team combed the area but failed to turn up other remains.

Has there been any progress? I'm going there for labor day and would like to avoid swimming next to rando body parts.


Anyone missing a leg is asked to contact the Sheriff's Department immediately....
