ANOTHER body part is believed to have been found in the county and detectives are currently investigating if it is linked to a severed arm found near Wheathampstead.

A member of the public made the gristly discovery next to the northbound carriageway of the A10 near Puckeridge, north of Ware, just before 1pm this afternoon (Tuesday).

Part of an arm was found in Drovers Lane near Nomansland Common on Sunday, March 29, which followed the discovery of the murder victim's leg the previous weekend in Cottered near Baldock.

And last Tuesday the man's severed head was discovered in a field in Asfordby, Leicestershire. A joint murder investigation has since been launched between police in Herts and Leicestershire.

He also had a skin condition which caused discoloration in the pigmentation around the ankle and there was a further skin condition on the lower leg causing it to scale.
