Human Foot Found Near Knott Landfill

BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a disturbing discovery in southeast Bend. A person walking their dog on January 21 found a portion of a human foot in a field across from the Knott Landfill. The Medical Examiner confirms the foot was surgically removed, and detectives believe it was disposed of with biological waste from a surgery center.

The investigation is ongoing, but the Sheriff’s Office says the body part may have been removed from the landfill by an animal, and disposed of in the field across the street.
