Firefighter Suspected of Taking Severed Foot

FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- A St. Lucie County firefighter who trains cadaver dogs is under investigation for allegedly taking a man's severed foot from the scene of a traffic accident, Fire Chief Ron Parrish announced Thursday.

Parrish said the incident calls into question "the public's trust in our responsibility and commitment to provide emergency care to our citizens. It's an extremely serious matter and one I find personally disturbing."

Parrish said he would not answer questions until the investigation is complete. Both the fire department and the Florida Highway Patrol are investigating.
