Last week, a dog led police to Sanders' badly decomposed body in the 600 block of North 12th Street. The dog was carrying a detached human hand in its mouth and dropped it in front of some Muskogee city workers. Police K-9s tracked the rest of Sanders' body.

Muskogee police said there were no indications into the cause of death at the scene. The state medical examiner's office will rule on official cause of death.
