Mystery over who the sinister hands belonged to, when they were chopped off, and why. GRAPHIC IMAGES

The site is a popular fishing place for locals and residents of nearby Khabarovsk city.

Investigators have rushed to the scene in the Beshennaya channel of the Amur River in Khabarovsk.

Initially a single hand was spotted, then the bag containing a total of 54 severed hands. 

Finger prints have been found on one hand. 

The others are being checked.

The site is a popular fishing place for locals and residents of nearby Khabarovsk city. 

The site is around 30 kilometres from the Chinese border close to a village called Vladimirovka.

Investigators have given no details so far on their probe into the case

Locals did not notice anything suspicious. 

One gruesome theory is that the hands could have been axed off as a punishment for theft.

But local media reported that next to the remains were found medical bandages and hospital-style plastic shoe covers. 

This has led to suspicion that the hands were cut off - possibly dead bodies - in a medical institution.

It is unclear why this may have been done. 

Investigators have given no details so far on their probe into the case.

What I think happened was that the person who did this did this out of greed and anger. o the fore he probably randomly just took people and cut off their has and buried them and since there was a body found times out of ten this person has the other bodies or they are buried somewhere, but if I figure out anything anything else I will let you know

Maybe someone wasn't able to complete their wind-chime project. I'm guessing it's an over the hill celebrity that just wanted to hear the audience applause every time the wind blew. (sorry, I couldn't resist)

If those doing research on this geographical area would take notice, these resemble parts from early Siberian peoples that once lived across the vast area now known as the Amur River Valley. These indigenous people were short in stature and would commonly graze the lands during moderate weather patterns. Based on photos and reconstruction efforts, it appears that most likely these are feet.

There is no truth to rumours that these are part of a massive iPhone fingerprint picking skeleton-key being assembled by Russian criminal gangs.

Has anybody red "Kolyma tails" or "Graphite" by Varlam Shalamav?
The hands of prisoners were cut off for proof when captured by the guards,
who didn't bother to carry back the bodies.

In the morgue, unidentified corpses are cut off by hands, in order to remove fingerprints from them and then check them on the base after special treatment. And the appearance of a bag with hands in the river could be a consequence of violation of the rules for the disposal of medical waste
