Severed hand found near Antelope Valley school

Authorities are looking for information about a severed human hand found near a middle school in Lake Los Angeles.

The discovery of the hand was reported about 9 p.m. Tuesday to Los Angeles County sheriff’s homicide detectives, said Deputy Robert Boese. He did not know who found the body part.

The hand was found in the 41700 block of 170th Street East, near Challenger Middle School. There was no immediate information on the victim, Boese said.

How sad; this was near a school; hopefully the person is still alive or even the situation itself, hopefully everybody could work things out, who knows what happened here; I am sure the investigators will check every hospital nearby; ...

I had a vivid dream about a severed hand on Monday night. In my dream, the man had dark hair and his hand was chopped (not cut or ripped) off. Very surprised when I saw this news story. Is it a coincidence?
My guess is this was done by the Mexican mafia and the victim is still alive but probably back in Mexico now. Just a guess.

I go to that school.

well.... i go to this school and they found an arm , & this morning (thursday) they found the torso of a man .....this WHOLE WEEK there has been news trucks, reporters,police around my school.And well they say that it could of been a coyote.
