Human leg found near Warnimont golf course in Cudahy, authorities say

A human leg was discovered Tuesday in or near Lake Michigan at Warnimont Park in Cudahy.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said the leg was found east of the golf course by the pump house. Cudahy police were initially notified around 5:30 p.m. and then turned the investigation over to the sheriff's office.

Warnimont Park is located at 5400 S. Lake Drive.

The sheriff's office said in statement Wednesday that someone patronizing the park found the leg and the agency is currently not treating the case as a homicide investigation, but a "death investigation, albeit suspicious."

No other information was immediately available.
