Police say 6 fingers found in trash bin at Honolulu complex likely from preschool-aged girl
HONOLULU (AP) ' Honolulu police say six fingers found in a Honolulu trash bin are likely from a girl who's 2 1/2 to 4 years old.
Authorities have yet to receive a single phone call a day after making a public plea for information about the discovery.
Police say many questions remain about the disturbing case and it's not known whether the fingers are recent or older.
The woman who was digging through trash at a housing complex when she made the grisly discovery says at first she thought they were dried ginger root.
Gina Rose Vendegna tells KHON-TV (http://bit.ly/yUsntN ) she was looking for recyclables last month when she came across a plastic bag. The mother of five later noticed fingernails and called police.
