The mystery is over as to who’s finger it was that showed up in Ms Ayala’s Wendy’s Chili last month. Police have tracked the finger to an acquaintance of the husband of Mrs Ayala.
The discovery of the finger’s owner marks a significant break in a case that has confounded authorities for nearly two months, ever since Anna Ayala claimed she bit down on the well-manicured, 1 1/2-inch finger in a mouthful of her steamy chili.
Davis said the Nevada man, whose name was not released, is cooperating. The police chief would not say if the man was in on the alleged hoax.
Police believe the man gave the finger fragment to Ayala’s husband, Jaime Plascencia, who was arrested this month on identity-theft charges unrelated to the Wendy’s case.
Maybe Wendy’s needs to do a back ground check on the patrons that enter their restaurant first? However, the mystery of the owner of the finger has been solved.
