I don't believe it was his fault, that's a man's hand. It looks to belong to a man in his late 30's-60's. Why would he lie about the gender of the hand unless he was joking... I believe he really thought it was a root.

That looks like the hand of a man, not a woman.

It's A Hand Because The Height and Shape is almost match of a Hand

I know that I'm late, but this doesn't look like a hand of a female. Its nails are short, but not broken or split, so it looks like the person whose hand this is from, didn't work on a farm (no dirt under the fingernail of the thumb).

I know that I'm late, but this doesn't look like a hand of a female. Its nails are short, but not broken or split, so it looks like the person whose hand this is from, didn't work on a farm (no dirt under the fingernail of the thumb).

If we could take a closer look then we could say for sure if it belonged to a person who worked on the land or wrote a lot (office job) or if he/she smoked.

Maybe then there could be an identification? It could also help pinpoint where this person was killed (if they are dead). Also, the hand is still intact (its not in the farthest state of decay), so we're looking for a recent missing person. I also agree with the people above, the suspect might've been drunk before he went to the bar or even when finding it.

Sorry for any spelling or grammatical mistakes.

I wonder why he would have it in a bar with him. The hand dose not seem to have any blood on it so he might have taken the hand off recently but long after the killing.

That sure is an odd looking root.

It's clearly not the farmer. Why would he dig up part of a body that he buried?

The survival of the victim in this case is 10% and the victim might not be his girlfriend as even after being cut off the hand shows sign of fights and struggle by the person before the incident and I believe the hand is taken off from the "buried body " . The farmer fought with the victim before the incident and the fight got real , as his anger took off , he might have killed the victim unexpectedly or only wanted to cause pain but not death . Victim might be a local /known to farmer /related to gf , mostly white or wheatish , height ranges from small to medium might be around 5.9

Did Johnny unearth the dead body and knowingly cut the hand with the post hole digger? In his interview he said he knew his land so he would have noticed the soil disturbed even if the grave was dug two weeks before. The grave wasn't very deep and Johnny dug around a bit. Maybe he saw it was Andrew Fine, that's no lose to him, and being the joker that he is used the hand as a prank. He also contradicted himself by saying that he had been drinking all day and that's why he thought the hand was a root. That can't be right because he also said he likes to cultivate his land in the morning before it gets to hot. So how could he have been drinking all day, yet say that he noticed what he thought was a root after he finished cultivating? The detectives didn't question Johnny to see what time he did finish his work but I would assume before midday which is what Johnny suggests. I doubt that with as much as Johnny drinks he wouldn't even be tippsy by lunch time.

Why was the hand cut off and moved away from the body?
