They haven't cleaned it up. I even said something to them and it's still there. small foot, must be a child.

Isn't there something better we can/should be taking pictures of? This is pretty gross.

It started at the apartment complex and not rite aid. The Police were called and so was the Management Company for Eklridge Plaza right after it was found. The Police from Howard County & the Maryland State Police showed up to investigate. A bloodhound was used to track the footprints into the woods and past the grocery store, covering both directions. The Crime Scene Forensic unit also showed up and did thier thing. Nothing else was found, no real point of origin. The shopping plaza was a trial of travel.

The property management companty also showed up and cleaned the mess up. Thier security team also showed up and checked with the different merchants to see if there are any problems with security at the plaza. They were advised of the loiterers, beggars & any additional problems. the rep's showed a real interest and also took notes.

If someone cut open the bottom of their foot, those wounds can bleed heavily. I sliced open my big toe once and it looked like I had chopped off my entire foot. It may not have been criminal activity - it may have simply been someone slicing open their foot and going to Rite Aid to get first aid.
