This murder is a shocker. WISTV-Channel 10 reported the findings.

According to the news report:

After fingerprint analysis, officials say the hands and feet belonged to 34-year-old Mekole Michelle Harris. The body parts were found in two different bags outside an apartment and a house in Greenville on Monday morning. Investigators have not figured out if the hands and feet were removed before or after Harris died. They do say if she was alive when the parts were removed, she could not have survived because of the severe blood loss.

Noting the trauma and brutality of this crime, Joe Kenda shares his thoughts. He is no stranger to the depths of depravity that humans can exhibit. In this episode, he shared that it takes a rare breed to be in law enforcement as an American Detective solving horrific crimes.

New season, new crimes

This American Detective series reenacts crimes and showcases detectives whose tireless efforts solved a tragic crime and helped put a murderer in prison.

In the season three premiere, titled Body Parts, two Greenville, South Carolina women discover bags on their doorstep that arrived with “ominous death threats and trash bags filled with severed human appendages.”

In the TV Shows Ace clip revealing one bag, Kenda said: “The bag contains a severed hand and a severed foot.”

Appearing a bit in shock, Officer Amber Drummond said: “Up until that moment, I had never seen anything like this before— only in movies. I was just astounded by the gruesome nature of this.”

Replete with his deadpan delivery, Kenda added: “Murder is a horrible crime, but there are some murders that display a level of evil and a level of depravity rarely seen, and this crime is one of those.”

In this episode, Det Flavell will solve his career’s most gruesome and senseless crime.
