Since we are "assuming" it is his leg, does that mean that the actual body part is not relevant?

Other person-H?A?M?
Did Mo know the other person of relevance?

Was it a relative? Spouse? Friend? Mo's child?

******** SPOILER **********

Police in Bakersfield, Calif., came to the aid of a man and a woman at the bottom of the Panorama Bluffs near town and told reporters later that the man had attempted to toss his girlfriend over the cliff but that she grabbed him, and the pair tumbled down 300 feet together (and that he was hurt worse than she).
