LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a human arm that was found on a river bank in Henry County.

WKYT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1zbypyV) the limb was discovered on a bank of the Kentucky River in Lockport, near Frankfort.

Henry County Coroner Jimmy Pollard said based on what appears to be acrylic nails, the arm belongs to a woman. He said the limb, from the shoulder to the fingers, is bruised and bloated.

Authorities searched the area but didn’t find a body or any other human remains.

The arm was taken to the medical examiner’s office on Saturday to begin the process of identification, which the coroner says could take a while.

“It’s not something that’s going to be solved in a week or a month probably,” Pollard said. “It takes time; this is not CSI on TV.”
