Another Human Foot Washes Up in British Columbia
VANCOUVER – A human foot in a sneaker has washed up in Vancouver — the eighth such grisly find in British Columbia in the last four years.
Vancouver police said that a person reported seeing “the remains of what appears to be a human foot and leg bones in a running shoe” shortly before 5:00pm local time Tuesday.
“[It was] quite disturbing — quite a discovery to make,” Vancouver Police Constable Jana McGuinness told reporters, according to CTV News.
A police statement said that the shoe was found floating in the water next to the Plaza of Nations marina in the False Creek area, which was cordoned off to allow the British Columbia Coroners Service to begin their investigation.
The discovery marks the eighth human foot to wash up in British Columbia since August 2007 and is the 12th to appear in the coastal region from British Columbia to northwestern Washington in that time.
In March a woman walking near Powell River, British Columbia, found a running shoe containing remains.
One washed up foot has been linked by DNA to a suspected suicide, while two found in Richmond, British Columbia, have been confirmed as belonging to the same woman.
Police said they do not suspect foul play and believe that the feet detached naturally in the water.
I can not believe that story ended with that quote! No foul play really???? Detached naturally?? What the crap?? I know one thing I will not be taking any midnight walks down by the Powell River!
