The amputated legs of an unidentified woman were found two months ago along a river in Pennsylvania and the authorities are struggling to determine who the limbs belonged to.
State Police Monday released information about the remains, which a fisherman discovered near the Hepburn Street Dam on the Susquehanna River in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on May 11.
Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. said that forensic investigators who investigated the remains believe that the legs belonged to an adult white woman standing between 5 and 6 meters long, according to PennLive.
He said the researchers believe the legs were a woman's because they found pink nail polish on the subject's feet, in addition to the white ankle socks from Ralph Lauren Polo Jeans.

According to Kiessling, the limbs were cut with a thin hand saw on the knee joint.
Researchers estimate that the legs were thrown away up to six months ago, forensic data show.
Recently no missing person reports have been submitted in the Williamsport area, so researchers think the person to whom the legs belonged was killed elsewhere.
The case is classified as a murder, but Kiessling has said that he is not yet ready to decide on the method of death. DNA testing can take months or even years.
The investigation is ongoing.
