Bags containing hands, feet found

Two black plastic bags containing a hand and a foot each were found Monday at two homes about a mile apart, authorities said.

The hands were "amputated" at the wrists, and the feet were taken off at the ankles, Greenville County coroner's investigator Scott Ramsey said. It's unclear whether the victim or victims survived the dismembering, Ramsey said.

"We don't know where the rest of the body is," he said. "There was very little blood found."

A woman told police she found body parts near her apartment. A second person soon reported a similarly gruesome find inside a home about a mile away. The callers are related but police would not say how.
