Unreliable sources reported that the hand's fingertips were painted various colors. The Ice Truck Killer is wanted for questioning. #Dexter.

the BIG question is "where is the rest of the body?"

The hand is a little more than skeletal remains. Skin tissue from the wrist to the finger tips were fully intact. Finger nails were also still present on the remains. It appeared to be old nothing "fresh" .
