Finger’s owner found

The week's news at a glance.

Las Vegas

The fingertip that a woman claimed she found in a bowl of Wendy’s chili has been traced to an associate of her husband, the San Francisco Chronicle reported this week. An employee at a Las Vegas asphalt maintenance company said a co-worker lost the digit five months ago when it was caught in the tailgate of a truck. The injured man worked with James Plascencia, whose wife, Anna Ayala, said she found the fingertip in her lunch at a Wendy’s outlet in Northern California in March. Ayala, who has a history of suing big companies, has since been charged with plotting to shake down the fast-food company by planting the finger in her own food.
