Artistic Reenactment

The agony of the feet continues in Canada.

British Columbia has been plagued by human feet, eight of which have recently washed ashore in the province, with another appendage found on the shore of Sasamat Lake near Port Moody on Friday, The Vancouver Sun reports.

This is at least the ninth foot discovered in British Columbia since 2007, according to The National Post. By other counts, there have been a dozen feet found.

The case of the mysterious feet has vexed authorities and the public, with details of the latest find differing from its predecessors in two ways, the CBC says.

The ninth foot, found last Friday by a child at a camp, was in a body of fresh water. All the previous feet, believed to have come from six different people, were in saltwater. And unlike the first eight, which were inside running shoes, the latest foot was in a hiking boot, media outlets said.

Like the earlier incidents, investigators don’t suspect foul play in the latest discovery, The Globe and Mail reports. Medical examiners believe the feet separated from dead bodies due to natural causes.

    “Like the earlier incidents, investigators don’t suspect foul play in the latest discovery, The Globe and Mail reports. Medical examiners believe the feet separated from dead bodies due to natural causes.”

    So the foot separating is natural, what about the dead part, could that be foul play?

    A corny story about lost sole mates. I’m thinking they took the foot away in a toe truck.

    Next year all the Japs will be rolling in from the quake.

      Dexter, you’ve overlooked the obvious- duct tape. Do I have to do everything for you?

    Yep we should be getting lots of feet next year. This foot naturally separated from the body but just because there is no evidence of trauma to the foot doesn’t tell you much about how they died. It could have been two to the head or they might had gone swimming, got a cramp, and drowned while wearing hiking boots.

  7. laxdude says:

    One of the feet was recently confirmed to be from a suicide off the Pattullo Bridge (a local suicide bridge due to easy access not to mention close to parking and transit) that spans the Fraser River between New Westminster and Surrey. Her body was never recovered (a spring run off on an out going tide can really get it moving).

    The body was never recovered. The foot showed up nearly 2 years later and was found out in the Georgia Strait.

    How many feet washing ashore in a particular area constitutes a “plague”? Now we know. It’s nine. Eight and one-half people.

    That’s what happens when you are ‘foot loose and fancy free’.

    Give in an inch and they’ll take a foot.

  15. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    I was hiking along that trail and when I turned around he was just a foot behind me.

  16. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    Was it shot off? Someone told me that the game was afoot.

  17. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    They asked me to put my foot in the lake to see how cold it was.

  18. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    A recent storm washed away the foot of a hill.

  19. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    That foot could be from someone’s yard.

  20. Skeptic > post # 27,331 says:

    Or, it could just be that maritime folk don’t lose their heads when they get angry.
