Another foot in time ...

    I know we had another thread on this but I can't find it. The mystery of the right feet washing ashore in British Columbia continues:

    Another right foot wearing a sock and sneaker was discovered washed ashore near Vancouver, the RCMP confirmed Friday.

    The foot is the fourth right foot wearing a sock and a running shoe to wash up in the area in less than a year.

    The latest foot was discovered on uninhabited Kirkland Island in the Fraser River on Thursday.

    The previous three washed up in the Gulf Islands between Vancouver and Vancouver Island. In August, two size 12 right feet were discovered on Gabriola and Jedediah islands, and a third foot was found in February on Valdez Island.

    DNA tests were underway and experts in forensics, major crime and missing persons were all involved in the investigation, the RCMP said on Friday.

    RCMP Cpl. Nycki Basra of Richmond said on Thursday that the case is one of the strangest she has heard of.

    "Well, for us, it's our first time. In my 12 years of service, this is the first time I've seen it," she said about the most recently found foot.

    Police are working to trace where the foot came from, Basra said. It could be the result of a suicide, an accident, or foul play.

    Meanwhile, one man believes the feet may be remains of his two brothers and two other passengers who were in a plane that crashed in the waters off Quadra Island three years ago.

    The bodies of the four men were never recovered, and Kevin Decock has been looking for the remains of his brothers since the crash in 2005.

    How hard is this to solve?

    Just round up all the limping runners in the area and ask them what the hell's going on.

    Sounds like a twist on Don DeLillo's "The Names", in which people were killed when the confluence of their names and a certain city or area somehow corresponded. Took me forever to read. Christ, what a book.

    have they determined whether or not all six feet are from the same person?

    I don't get it. Why would they cut off their feet before the plane crashed? ;)

    Well, you have to admit this is one weird-ass story.

    This one is different, though, because it looks like it was sawed off ... puzzling, indeed.

    Uh, how did the others look? Gnawed off?

    My guess is someone's lopping feet of cadavers to screw with people. An odd way for someone to get their kicks, but it takes all kinds.
