The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office says a woman walking a dog found the body part on Sunday.

Police described it as the lower part of a decomposed leg, from the knee down, with the foot attached. Authorities say there was no clothing or markings on the limb. No other body parts were found.

The leg was taken to the county medical examiner's office where a DNA sample will be collected.
