A leg found by a motorist on Interstate 10 in Cibolo was related to a fatality accident in Boerne, officials confirmed.
On March 22, a passerby spotted what appeared to be a human leg in the eastbound lanes of the 10700 block of I-10.
Cibolo police shut down the interstate and secured the area while they investigated.
Detectives called around to other agencies and discovered there had been a fatality crash in Boerne earlier that day, according to Cibolo Police Department’s Public Relations Officer Richard Mireles.
“The leg was turned over to them to see if there was a connection,” Mireles told KSAT.
The communications director for the City of Boerne said it was determined that the remains were related to the fatal accident involving a commercial truck driver.
The victim was identified as Jeremy McGee, 48, of Kerrville.
McGee had pulled over onto the right-hand shoulder of I-10 and gotten out of his truck when he was hit by a passing motorist in an SUV.
Boerne officials believe the body part became lodged onto a passing truck and dislodged about 50 miles away in Cibolo.
“By the next day our investigators positively identified the body part belonged to Mr. McGee before his burial,” said Boerne Communications Director Chris Shadrock.
Shadrock said the investigation into the crash is ongoing but at this time, police don’t expect to file any charges against the driver of the SUV that hit McGee.
