How would anybody look at that hand and not know it was a hand. I still think he knew what it was when he found it. Wondering if it was fear that made him say he thought it was a root. I just do not buy that line.

I wonder if the rest of the body is someplace close. He said he dug up the hand with a post hole digger. Wonder if he chopped off the hand with the digger and did not know it.

Good point of him having chopped the hand off by accident while using the post hole digger... But then what bothers me is; if he had killed someone, a) why bury it in the fields you are working in? And b) if that didn't bother him cause he was...

Good point of him having chopped the hand off by accident while using the post hole digger... But then what bothers me is; if he had killed someone, a) why bury it in the fields you are working in? And b) if that didn't bother him cause he was going to sell his farm anyway, why start digging in the first place?

Don't think you can forget if you killed someone and then buried it in your land, then accidentally dig it up again, unless you were drugged and completely out of it. He's quite happy drinking, but I think it's a bit far fetched assuming he is the criminal who buried a body to dig it up again by accident. If so , then I guess we have a new candidate for the "Epic Fails of Criminals" award.

Is there a way to make this bigger? so I (we?) can see it closer. I wanted to see the cut wrist to look at it closer

The pictures sure look like a hand to me, so how the hand could have been mistaken as the root of a plant, is hard to fathom.

Dirt on it. So it's likely it was under the ground at some point.

Its a man-hand. By seeing the size of the hand. And he s was a healthy man.
the backyward and the place nearby should be cheacked for any dead body..
The man can be hunted toughly as the bones of fingers seems to be broken in picture.
Anyone...

I believe it's a Man's hand , if U observe U'll find that the index is longer than the ring finger and that's a common feature among men ...so maybe the suspect is right , maybe it's not his ex girlfriend hand

The man was seen drinking a LOT that day.
People usually drink to num there senses. Which means either he was in tension or he was scared.Considering the fact that he had a human hand with him it was
obviously fear.

So a scared white man drinking...Oh, that means it was no joke. Unless he was a strong alcohol addict.They didn't say anything about that so I am going to rule out Joke from the list.

He obviously knew it was a human hand. Since he was drunk he was obviously tired. People find it hard to lie in such circumstances (I don't know how to explain this.Something related to glucose level and stuff...google it).

If he can't lie and if it was an accident during work as @Azna said a confused,scared and drunk person would give off of the info instead of making stories.Ruling out work place accident

The hand doesn't look like it was a clean slice. My assumptions was some acid. But since I can't see any burn on the hand I am going to conclude that the weapon was something sharp and long and the person using it was not very experienced with doing stuff like this ....Is it possible to get forensic reports?

If someone, possibly a black guy with only one hand, reported an attempt to murder or something then the person is still alive. Else the person is either dead or locked up somewhere(in case he is locked up he might die due to bleeding.) So the person is most probably dead.

As for the grudge theory, well it is more likely to have happened during a fight. The adrenaline rush can give the person enough will and strength to stand the sight.
