Ninth foot washes up onshore in Canada

Ninth foot washes up in Canada — with a twist –

In a followup to an earlier story, another (!) foot washes onshore.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help in trying to determine the identity of a ninth foot that washed up in southwestern British Columbia.

The remains of a foot were found encased in a sock in a hiking boot that washed up in Sasamat Lake in Port Moody over the weekend. An autopsy on Monday confirmed the remains are human.

The foot is the ninth found in southwestern B.C. in the past four years.

This foot had a hiking boot instead of a sneaker. It also looked to be quite old (decades). Best guess would be a drowning victim in this lake.

YUCK! I wish we had an answer to this mystery.

Yes, there are so many of these, the number is not consistent. Hmm. 9 vs 12?

    Has Brian Dunning looked into this? Would make for a cool episode of Skeptoid.
