POLICE are linking a body part, believed to be part of an arm, found in a country lane to a leg found near Cottered.
The latest find was made by walkers in Drovers Lane, also known as Farriers Lane, in Wheathampstead yesterday (Sunday) at 12.15pm.
"It is highly likely to be linked to the leg discovered in Cottered the previous Sunday, but we will not have definitive confirmation until more tests have been carried out" said DCI Mick Hanlon.
"This is a very unusual incident and we are working meticulously to establish who the body parts belong to and how they came to be in Cottered and Wheathampstead."
The arm was disposed of on the grass verge in Drovers Lane without any clothing and was not contained in anything.
DCI Hanlon added: "We are appealing for any witnesses who used Drovers Lane from 10pm on Friday to contact us, as well as anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the Nomansland area.
