7th Severed Foot Found In Dewsbury Park

Police are investigating after a severed human foot was discovered in Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury.

The latest discovery brings the total number of severed feet unearthed in the town up to seven this year.

Officers confirmed the latest foot, which has so far left police stumped, was sent for forensic analysis testing.

It was found at 2.30pm on Wednesday on the Northside of Crow Nest Park towards Boothroyd Lane.

“At this stage we are keeping an open mind as to whether or not this is linked to the previous six similar incidents in the town,” West Yorkshire Police said in a statement.

The mystery over previous severed feet were deemed inconsclusive in May when police revealed there was a lack of evidence to pursue.

The first, a left foot, was found by a dog-walker on Caulms Wood Road in February.

The second, another left limb, was unearthed in undergrowth in Earlsheaton.

After three months of investigation into the six feet, police confirmed they were satisfied all leads had been exhausted and placed the files into archive.

Police said of the latest find: “The same officers are looking into the latest discovery and will look to confirm beyond all reasonable doubt that they are linked if so the case and if there are any new lines of inquiry which can be taken forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 and quote log number 558 of 3 August.
