Man Throws Severed Arms at Witnesses

Police officers responding to a call of a vehicle fire Sunday arrived at a public housing development in Kirksville and saw Potter “throw two objects, later identified as human arms, towards the witnesses,” according to a probable cause statement.

Potter was taken into custody “and blood evidence was later collected from his hands,” the statement said.

Fires had been set in two apartments. Officers and firefighters found a dismembered body with additional wounds to the face and sternum in one of the apartments. Both apartments were both strewn with blood.

Potter had taken “substantial steps to conceal the crime and divert attention away from the crime,” the police statement said.

Two vehicles also had been set on fire and police said they found several knives inside and around one of the apartments.
