The dog’s owner called San Bernardino Sheriff’s detectives, who then found more body parts along the I-40 Freeway.

Erica said she’s used to her dog, Lucky, bringing home animals, but never expected to see a human foot.

“It didn’t seem like it was real. It was freaky, scary and I was in shock,” the Newberry Springs resident said.

Detectives said they can’t yet determine the race or gender on any of the remains.

They are looking into missing persons cases in the area and will gather DNA from the parts they’ve found.
