DNA from missing-person case helps ID 2 legs found in trash

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say they have identified two human legs that were found in the trash at a waste-collection facility in Ohio's capital two years ago.

Columbus police say a DNA match from a missing-person case helped identify the remains as those of a 22-year-old woman from the city's northeast side named Candice A. Taylor.

Police trying to determine how her remains ended up at a waste facility on the city's south side have investigated the case as a possible homicide.

The Columbus Dispatch reports authorities haven't found additional remains linked to Taylor.
