Severed leg found in Florida belongs to missing lesbian

A severed leg that mysteriously washed ashore in Florida last December belonged to a missing Bradenton woman, whose girlfriend has also vanished.

Detectives said 38-year-old Kelly Moriarty, who has been missing since December 17 last year, has died, and they are now investigating where the rest of her remains are.

Moriarty’s case is entwined with that of her girlfriend, 61-year-old Doris Wade Carter of Plant City, who is also missing.

Investigators say the two women were last seen on the night of December 16 at Carter's home. The next morning, both women had disappeared, along with Moriarty's car, according to Carter’s daughter Stacy Muralt.

Murlat, who said the two women had a tumultuous romantic relationship, added that it was not unusual for her mother and her girlfriend to be gone for long periods of time.
