Yet another human foot has washed up on the shores of the Salish Sea in Canada’s British Columbia, bringing the total number washed up since 2007 to thirteen. But this foot’s slightly different, because while all the others were wearing trainers, this one was wearing a hiking boot. Also, this is the first one to be found in fresh rather than salt water.
The male right foot, size 12, was found by a group of young campers at Sasamat Lake. Police do not believe that there is foul play involved in the discovery, but rather that it is the latest foot to be simply washed ashore thanks to a combination of current patterns and a series of maritime accidents.
It’s believed that all the feet are coming from bodies which fell separately into the sea at various times. Feet are apparently among the first parts of a body to come loose after a period spent being battered by strong currents, in which case the feet aren’t the work of a serial killer but are in fact part of a gruesome coincidence.
