Police were notified that the bones from a leg had washed ashore on a Nantucket beach, still wearing a boot and a sock. "Tim is the guy that I'm going to bring the bones to," detective Steve Tornovish said. "He's the absolute master of the universe down here." Lepore examined the leg and discovered that it was a fibula and tibia without any injuries, and authorities from the state decided later that the leg was that of a Nantucket local, Jonathan Hemingway, who appeared to have fallen off his boat while en route from Hyannis, Mass. to Nantucket.
