FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A severed human hand was found behind a Ferguson home Thursday, and the children of a murdered man believe it may belong to their father.

A man posted on Facebook Thursday saying he’d found the severed hand while mowing a neighbor’s lawn in Ferguson.

A woman contacted News 4 saying she thinks the hand belongs to her father, 56-year-old Mark Fowler.

Police found Fowler shot dead and lying on the ground along Courtney Ave. in Berkeley last October.

The area where police found his body is a little less than a mile away from the Ferguson home where the hand was found.

St. Louis County Police say they are aware of the find and are investigating to see if it is connected to any of the cases they’re working on, which would include Fowler’s death.

The St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office said they are working to identify who the hand belongs to, but that it could take weeks.

Police ask anyone with information about the hand or Fowler’s death to contact Crime Stoppers at 314-725-8477.
