Police check report of severed hand but find dried squid instead

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:04 a.m. HST, Jul 22, 2011

Honolulu police and law enforcement officials with the state Department of Land and Natural Resources have determined that what was reported to be a severed human hand found at Moku Auia Seabird Sanctuary, also known as Goat Island, was actually dried squid.

A woman reported that she saw the hand on the island over the weekend, and again Thursday, a DLNR spokeswoman said.

Officers with DLNR's Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement then asked HPD homicide detectives for assistance with the case.

HPD spokeswoman Michelle Yu said late this afternoon, however, that the object was actually dried squid.
