View Full Version : Man Claims Fingertip found at Bus Stop

A fingertip found at a bus stop by schoolchildren, touching off a police investigation, was claimed Friday by a man who injured his hand in a snowblower accident. The man contacted Cranberry police Friday, a day after the children found it.

Police said the man told them the accident happened about two weeks ago when he was trying to clear a snowblower. He didn't bother to look for the finger; he just went to the hospital for treatment, said police Lt. Jeff Schueler.

"He claimed it was his, but he didn't want to claim it, if you know what I mean," Schueler told the Butler Eagle.

Authorities had brought in a search dog Thursday to look for other remains.

So, did the police dust for prints? :D Or do the Cranberry police only come out at Thanksgiving?

Definitely weird. He didn't bother looking for the fingertip? His reaction was, "Oh, well"??

And how the heck did this guy lose just a fingertip in a snowblower? If the blades were stopped, how'd he cut his fingertip off? And why would he have to look for the fingertip? It'd fall right where it was cut off. OTOH, if the blades were moving, how'd he avoid his hand getting pulled in and losing more of it?
