Mystery human bone found inside pair of socks

Socks bought at UK fashion retailer Primark recently were found to contain a fragment of human bone.
The grim discovery, which was made at a store in Colchester, prompted a police investigation.

While the bone is not believed to have been from a recently deceased individual, its origins - as well as the circumstances surrounding how it came to be inside the socks - remain a total mystery.

"Detectives are continuing to investigate following the discovery of what is believed to be part of a human bone in a pair of Primark socks," said a police spokesman.

"The bone does not appear to be a result of recent trauma and had no skin or other particles surrounding it."

"We are liaising with the store who, in turn, are speaking to their suppliers for more information on this incident. Inquiries are ongoing."

The store itself maintains that someone must have deliberately placed the bone in the socks.

"Primark clearly takes this matter very seriously and has already carried out an investigation at our supplier's factory where the socks were made," a spokesman has stated.

"No evidence of any kind exists to suggest that any incident has occurred in the factory, so it is highly probable that this object was placed in the socks by an individual for unknown reasons."
