Human foot found in backyard of Springfield home

FAIRFAX CO. – A Springfield resident called police to their home Saturday because of possible human remains in their backyard.

Police say officers arrived at the 5900 block of Brunswick Drive and found a partially decomposed human foot.

Investigators are unclear of the race or gender associated with the remains at this time.

Officers searched the surrounding areas and found additional bones in a nearby backyard, but they appear to be from an animal and are likely unrelated.

The Medical Examiner’s Office has verified that the foot is human and will provide additional investigatory support.
