DETECTIVES leading the investigation into the murder of a man after body parts were left at two country locations in Hertfordshire say they are awaiting DNA tests on a head found in Leicestershire to see whether it is linked to their inquiries.
The head was found on Tuesday close to a cemetery. At the moment it is not known whether it belonged to a male or female.
Meanwhile detectives on the Beds and Herts serious crime unit continue their hunt to try and identify the man whose left leg was found at Cottered on Sunday, March 22, and right forearm was discovered by walkers last Sunday in a lane 20 miles away at Wheathampstead.
"We are talking with our colleagues in Leicestershire to see whether there is a link between the head discovered there and the body parts found here," said a Herts police spokesman.

"They hope to have DNA results of the head within a few days."
Herts police have ruled out any link between a foot found on a river bank at Deerhurst, Gloucestershire, last week with the body parts found in Hertfordshire.
