One foot has been identified as belonging to a man suffering from depression who vanished a year ago. Name withheld on request of family...

I heard a report that the police forensics folks think they're the feet of people who died
accidentally (fell in the water and drowned or something), and as the body decomposed
in the water, the foot ("feet" in one case) were kept afloat by the athletic shoes that all
of these found-feet have in common.  After that, the current caught them, and the only
reason they're finding so many in this one place is that people in that area, who would
otherwise have simply ignored an old sneaker floating past, now haul the shoe into the boat.

Apparently there's no sign that the feet were forcibly or mechanically separated from their
respective ankles, so the forensic scientists think they simply rotted off.  (Mmmm, tasty!)

It's just part of a promotion.

Two more are scheduled to turn up, with a wedding dress.

I don't get it..... like usual. You're too clever for me.


I find the odds of just feet washing up and them not being severed on purpose hard to believe. It might be used as an excuse as to curb panic in BC. I wish I found one of those feet. I'd definitely take pictures. It is just my luck this happens on the other side of the country.

Actually, while I don't necessarily accept that explanation unquestioningly, that part at least makes sense...

With apologies for the gross-factor:
When a person drowns, their body floats for a while because of gases produced during the decomposition
process in the abdomen.  Once those spaces are too rotted to hold the gas in, the body sinks.  Most of the
things people wear and carry will also sink, if not immediately, after a while in the water when they become
thoroughly waterlogged.  Most athletic shoes, however, usually have a rubbery, non-degradable sole, with
lots of buoyant foam cushioning.  Thus, the person drowns, bloats, floats, sinks, then rots on the bottom.
After a while, they start to fall apart, and their shoes float to the surface, possibly taking the foot with.
Go to any river near any city, and you can probably find a number of sneakers that are either floating or
that have washed ashore.  in most places, no one but the trash man gives 'em a second glance.

I know all that... I'm saying the odds of six different feet showing up all around the same time by sheer coincidence is very small. I just find it hard to fathom. If one or even two washed up... ok... 6? 6!

....but who knows how many feet have washed up anywhere, but nobody bothered to
fish what appeared to be no more than old sneakers out of the water?

There in the Georgia Strait, people have started looking for shoes floating by...
