CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department are asking for the public's help in a case after fingers from a child were found in a dumpster at the Kukui Gardens Housing Complex in Liliha.

The fingers were found on February 12.

Laboratory testing revealed that the fingers are those of a child.

Investigators have been questioning residents, staff and hospitals.

"I have not seen anything in my 25 years... seen something like this," said Sgt. Kim Buffett.

Buffett says the fingers belong to a child 10 years of age or younger. She could not say how long the fingers might have been there.
