TESTS have confirmed that the severed arm discovered in Wheathampstead on Sunday belonged to the same person whose leg was found dumped elsewhere the previous weekend.
The unidentified man's arm was found by walkers on a grass verge in Drovers Lane at around midday - a week after his leg was found in a holdall by a lay-by in Cottered, near Baldock.
The body parts belonged to an adult man, believed to be between 5ft 6ins and 5 ft 10ins tall with a shoe size between a seven and a nine. The victim also had a skin condition which has caused discolouration in the pigmentation around the ankle and there was a further skin condition on the lower leg causing it to scale.
His ethnicity is still unconfirmed but he is believed to be white or Asian.
The police are continuing searches of the area and it's thought that the arm could have been moved from another location by an animal.
Police are appealing for any witnesses who used Drovers Lane from 10pm on Friday as well as anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the Nomansland area.
