LIVINGSTON, Mont. -

Law enforcement on Tuesday confirm a body part found at a car wash in Livingston on Monday belonged to 81-year-old Elgie Bedford of Wasilla, Alaska.

Police say Bedford died after being struck by a vehicle on i-90 near Big Timber Tuesday morning.

Livingston's chief of police says the body part was likely there for a couple hours.

Randy Bruce works across the street from the car wash He says he saw a white dodge pick-up pull into the car wash, start a wash and then law enforcement showed up.

"They all had gloves on, they were talking to the guy and they took him away and they started going through the sup tank and washing everything…making sure everything was sterilized," says Randy Bruce, Manager of the Livingston Meat Shoppe.

Montana Highway Patrol has not yet ruled out the possibility the individual who reported the body part to authorities could be involved in the crime. The Montana Highway Patrol says Bedford may have been walking from a vehicle found near the scene when he was first hit and may have been hit several times.

If you have information regarding the incident, you are asked to call the Sweet Grass County Sheriff's Office or the Montana Highway Patrol.
