Torso, leg found in Mississippi River in southeast Minnesota
WABASHA, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say more body parts have been found in the Mississippi River in southeastern Minnesota.
Wabasha County Sheriff Rodney Bartsch says two boys discovered a torso and an attached leg with a boot on Saturday.
In April, a 61-year-old Pepin, Wisconsin, man disappeared after taking his sailboat onto Lake Pepin. His boat was found unoccupied, with the motor running, the next day.
The remains discovered Saturday were found about four miles downriver from where searchers were looking for the missing boater.
DNA tests will be conducted on the remains.
