Investigators scour area along Little Blue where kayakers found hand

Authorities combed the shoreline of the Little Blue River for evidence Tuesday after two kayakers discovered a “skeletonized” human hand on Monday. Investigators recovered the hand and lower arm, up to the elbow, said Jackson County Sheriff Mike Sharp. Enough tissue was found to test for DNA, he said. A forensic anthropologist was to examine the remains, he said.
