A second leg thought to belong to a missing Northern California woman was found Thursday, a day after her husband and suspected killer was found dead in his jail cell.

Bridget Jacobs is seen in a photo released by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office on March 29, 2017.

Divers discovered the leg in Brandy Creek Marina at Whiskeytown Lake, 14 miles west of Redding, according to Det. Chris Edwards of the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office. Two weeks ago, authorities found another leg anchored to a cement cinder block with a tie strap in the same marina.
