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.
A police spokesperson confirmed that officers from the Beds and Herts Major Crime Unit were at the scene in Ware searching the area but she said it was too early to comment on what the suspected body part was.
The murder victim's identity still remains a mystery to police, but they do know that he was a white or Asian adult man of between 5ft 6ins and 5ft 10ins in height with a shoe size between a seven and a nine.

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.
