A 7-year-old boy in Chilly-Mazarin, France was digging in the ground behind his school when he unearthed a jar of real human fingers (not seen below). Police believe they have identified the owner of the digits and are attempting to locate him now. I guess to return them? From Reuters:

At the time, his fingers could not be surgically reattached so the carpenter put them in a jar full of alcohol and buried them near his home, the police spokeswoman said.
