Severed Finger Helps Identify Suspect in Anderson County Theft

An Anderson County man is facing theft charges after investigators found his severed finger.

Anderson County Deputies were called to the 900 block of Batley Road Thursday morning after reports of a stolen log splitter. The owner says a number of tools and other items were scattered at the end of the driveway.

However, he also found a finger and a cell phone. Officers called around to multiple hospitals until they found a patient missing a digit. 50-year-old Hugh John Seeber was arrested and charged with Felony Theft.

Anderson County Sheriff Russell Baker says, “I am very proud of the work our guys did today. Mr. Seeber’s finger pointed us in the right direction which led to him being charged.”
