    Missing Leg Report - Urgent

    If you see this leg, will you please return it to the right-full owner.

    --Thank you.


    Pair chop off, run off with holy man's "magic" leg

    By OMER FAROOQ
    The Associated Press




    HYDERABAD, India Two men attacked an 80-year-old, self-proclaimed holy man in southern India and chopped off his right leg, apparently believing it had magical powers, police said Thursday.


    Yanadi Kondaiah, who claimed that those who touched his leg would be cured of illness or have wishes granted, was hospitalized in serious condition after the attack Tuesday, said R. Ravindranath Reddy, a senior police officer.


    "We are looking for the miscreants as well as the leg," Reddy told The Associated Press by telephone from the Chittoor district, a remote area 340 miles south of Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh state.

    ^ Sorry, I know I'm a sicko, but his lucky leg didn't do much for him, did it? Wonder if it'll 'magically' heal itself?

    The crooks weren't real fast, but they had a leg up on the mystic for their getaway.

    Apparently the alleged identified two suspects that were arrested.

    However, the police released them. They said the victim didn't have a leg to stand on.

    Police thought they had the case sewn up but when the victim decided not to press charges, they waited for the other shoe to drop.

    After he passed out, drunk, the men chopped off the leg below the knee
    So he was already legless at the time of the theft so no crime committed.

    If they'd stolen both he wouldn't have a leg to stand on
