Police Confirm Prosthetic Leg Belongs to Zahra Baker

Police have confirmed that a prosthetic leg discovered last week in North Carolina belongs to a missing 10-year-old Zahra Baker.

From CNN:

A serial number that was extracted from the prosthetic leg matches the limb belonging to Zahra Baker, the Hickory, North Carolina, Police Department said.

Police launched a search for Zahra on October 9, but no one other than a family member has reported seeing her since September 25, when a woman saw her at a furniture store. The girl’s disappearance is now being probed as a homicide.

“Medical records obtained from Australia where the prosthetic leg was originally fitted matched the serial number on the leg,” police said in a news release. “A scanner was used to extract the serial number from a transponder placed inside the prosthesis.”

  1. So, so sad! Poor child. Her step-mother epitomized the wicked step-mother in fairy tales; the irony is she thought herself a fairy. How bizarre.

    I hope they find her body, as I read N.C. doesn’t do well with convictions without a body.

    We all knew the Prosthesis was Zahra’s. It tears me up imagining the horrible way in which this darling girl may have met her Fate, and, not only can’t I Hope and Pray hard enough that, by some Miracle, her Remains are found and she is laid to Rest in the Peace and Dignity she so deserves, but that both her evil Parents as well as each and every single person who knew of her abusive Life and did nothing, all pay dearly for the rest of their Lives.

    With their lifestyle, and the way they kept Zahra hidden while she was alive, I wonder how many years they could’ve gotten away with her murder if they did not call 911. It’s crazy.

    I think the only way that found that leg is Elisa. There is a lot they’re not telling the media.
