(IDAHO FALLS) – Idaho Falls police have closed their investigation into the origin of a mummified hand archived at the Museum of Idaho. Anthropologists from the Utah Division of State History say the hand was somewhere between 700 and 1,000 years old. The hand, which is believed to have originally come from Utah, will likely be offered back to the Native American Tribes of Utah.
