Detectives put a GPS tracking device on Bill Flowers' dog Liberty, hoping the animal would lead them to more body parts. Search and rescue dogs, however, located additional remains.
Seattle (KOMO via CNN) -- Authorities in Washington State are searching for more
remains after a dog came home with a human leg. The gruesome discovery was made
last week and on Sunday investigators found more body parts.
"I got up one morning about 8:30. I
was going to feed my dogs and this dog here was standing over that leg,"
recalls 93-year-old Bill Flowers.

After police were alerted, search and rescue dogs found more remains -- a
pelvis and rib cage -- in the woods, at an old fish hatchery.
A pathologist will look at the body parts to figure out if it's a man or
woman. Investigators will also look at the bones to see what kind of instrument
might have been used to dismember the body.
