Detectives put a GPS tracking device on Bill Flowers' dog Liberty, hoping the animal would lead them to more body parts. Search and rescue dogs, however, located additional remains.

Seattle (KOMO via CNN) -- Authorities in Washington State are searching for more remains after a dog came home with a human leg. The gruesome discovery was made last week and on Sunday investigators found more body parts.

 "I got up one morning about 8:30. I was going to feed my dogs and this dog here was standing over that leg," recalls 93-year-old Bill Flowers.

His dog, Liberty, dragged home a human leg and was standing over it.  

"I examined it. I picked it up and looked at the toes and nothing. None of the leg or foot was damaged... from the knee down, it wasn't damaged at all."

Flowers says the leg was gray in color and appeared it was dismembered about 4 inches from the buttocks.  

"I had a funny feeling. I thought, 'Should I call the police?' I say, 'No, I'll just take it and bury it,'" says Flowers. "I put it in a good plastic bag and buried it."

That was on Tuesday. Flowers didn't call law enforcement until four days later, on Saturday afternoon.

"I was afraid to call," Flowers explains. "I'm 93 years old. I didn't want to have to go to the pen for something I didn't do."

After police were alerted, search and rescue dogs found more remains -- a pelvis and rib cage -- in the woods, at an old fish hatchery.

A pathologist will look at the body parts to figure out if it's a man or woman. Investigators will also look at the bones to see what kind of instrument might have been used to dismember the body.
