Earlier this year, I posted that the third severed foot in six months had turned up on a beach in British Columbia. A fourth was found last week. All of them have been right feet inside size 12 sneakers. From the Canadian Press:
Police say DNA testing is being done on the latest foot, and DNA profiles have been conducted on the others.
Curtis Ebbesmeyer, an oceanographer based in Seattle, Wash., said when a human body submerged in the ocean, the main parts like arms, legs, hands, feet and the head are usually what come off the body.
But he's still baffled by how the exact same part -- a right foot -- could wash up repeatedly.
"It's not unusual for body parts to wash up along the United States or Canada," he said. "There's so many accidents, like boating. That's not unusual. It is unusual to find four bodies over the course of the year and just right feet."
