Leg found in recycling plant in Dublin

DUBLIN — A severed leg has been found at a Dublin recycling plant, and police are searching trash for the rest of the body.

A doctor called to the plant early Friday in west Dublin confirmed the leg was human, but couldn’t determine whether it came from a man or woman.

Police say the leg could belong to a homeless person sleeping in a dumpster who was accidentally crushed to death inside a garbage truck. Or a Dublin gang could have dismembered a murder victim.

Last year a 43-year-old Polish man who had been sleeping in a bin was crushed to death. And police repeatedly have found parts of dismembered murder victims, including a headless body in a canal in 2005.
