A severed human hand found next to train tracks in west Windsor likely came from as far away as Guatemala.

Police investigated after an employee at the CP rail yard just off of Caron Avenue found a severed human hand on Tuesday.

The hand was seized by Windsor Police and an extensive ground search of the area was conducted.

Police say there is no evidence of any kind to suggest that anything occurred in the vicinity of the rail yard.

Investigators say the human hand possibly fell from the undercarriage of a train that was involved in a collision elsewhere as Windsor’s tracks link to a rail system that reaches as far away as Guatemala.

Forensic specialists will be performing a DNA analysis on the hand but police say obtaining fingerprints is not possible due to the condition of the hand.
