A human foot was found Tuesday night in a rail yard in Chicago.

Rail-yard workers found the foot around 10 p.m. in the 1600 block of South Lumber Street, police told the Chicago Tribune. It may belong to a man who was hit and killed by an Amtrak train last month in Racine, Wis., police said.

The foot may have gotten stuck on the train during the accident and fell off once the train arrived in Chicago, officials told the publication.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office is examining the extremity.
