Irish police are investigating how a human leg was found at a waste recycling plant [Thorntons Recycling plant] in [Ballyfermot] Dublin on Thursday night.

Detectives are exploring two main theories about how the limb ended up at the recycling site. One possibility is that the limb belonged to a homeless person sleeping in a bin somewhere in the Irish capital.

The second theory the Garda will investigate is that the leg could be from the body of a murder victim. Dublin’s crime gangs have abducted, killed and hidden the remains of those they have killed in disputes over drugs, territory and weapons.
