Buried Mystery: The Pacific Northwest severed human foot discoveries

Since August 2007, ten detached human feet have been discovered on the coasts of the Salish Sea in British Columbia (Canada) and Washington (United States). The feet belong to five men, one woman, and one other person, the two left feet having been matched with two of the right feet. As of August 2008, only one foot has been identified; it is not known to whom the rest of the feet belong. In addition, a hoax "foot" was planted on Vancouver Island.

The first foot was discovered on August 20, 2007, on Jedediah Island, by a girl visiting from Washington.[2] The girl found the foot when she picked up a shoe and opened the sock.[3] The foot was that of a man, and was found wearing a size 12 Adidas shoe and a sock. It is thought to have become disarticulated due to submerged decay.[2] This kind of shoe was produced in 2003 and distributed mainly in India.[4] (read more)
