Authorities investigate human hand found near Elgin

The East Oregonian

Union County authorities are investigating a human hand discovered Friday on Boise Cascade property near Elgin.

The Union County medical examiner has confirmed the body part was a human hand, but there might not be enough to establish an identity. Union County will send the hand to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Clackamas or verification and possible identification.

The Union County Sheriff's Office, La Grande Police Department, Oregon State Police and other members of the Union County Major Crimes Team are investigating to determine cause and manner of death.

We have unsolved murders here in the Lewis-Clark Valley. I wonder if this case could be related to our cases?

Our suspect has ties to Joseph.
