Sixth (real) foot discovered off BC Coastline (now up to a dozen or more)
[Mod. note} Original title of thread described three found feet...
Three severed right feet have washed ashore on the Gulf Islands in the past six months, in what police say is one of the most bizarre cases in recent memory......
Two other right feet, both in size 12 men's sneakers, washed ashore on Gabriola and Jedediah islands last August. RCMP collected DNA from the grisly remains but could not match them to anyone in police databases. The three islands are within 60 kilometres of each other.
Times Colonist Aside from pure coincidence, I wonder what sort scenario would cause something like this to happen?
I wonder if there is a connection to several missing Greater Vancouver young men in their early twenties? In the last couple of years, police and family members have appealed for any information on missing men whose cars are found abandoned in parks or secluded spots etc. often with the keys still in the ignition!
Apparently, none of the men were depressed or involved in the drug trade or had gang connections.
The male prostitute angle has never come up as far as I know. However, even if they were, it's still a tragic situation as they were all somebody's son, brother, cousin, partner, uncle, or even father!
According to the Globe & Mail, the police are stumped.
Ok, but seriously. While the police have been very tight-lipped, they have said that the DNA on the first four do not match any missing persons case they have so that would eliminate the mysteriously missing young men.
I had not heard about the female foot. I know several were men's size 12.
