    Default Anyone lose a leg? or 3?

    OTTAWA (AFP) A severed human foot has been found in Canada's westernmost Gulf Islands, marking the third such discovery in six months stumped police said Saturday, noting all three are right feet, size 12, male and shod in sneakers.

    "It is not known at this time what relationship, if any, this foot has with the two feet recovered last year in the same area," Constable Annie Linteau of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement.
    The two previous cases are still under investigation and federal police "have yet to determine if foul play is involved" in the first two cases or in this latest discovery, she said.

    The standing mystery began in August 2007 when a severed foot in a white and blue runner was discovered washed ashore on the beaches of Jedidiah Island in the Georgia Straight between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

    Authorities speculated it might have been lost in a boat propeller accident, due to foul play, or a hoax.

    Six days later, a second right foot in a black and white sneaker appeared on nearby Gabriola Island.

    The most recent find was on February 8, when a third right foot washed up on the east side of Valdes Island.

    The local coroner is conducting DNA tests on the feet. But so far, there has been no match to missing persons, police said.

    How very odd... though to be correct, its a foot, not a leg.

    I believe my sister's told me of times she's seen feet in boots or something of the sort around these parts, but of course that's quite strange since there's no reason to be seeing something like this. I suppose it could be simply overspeculation due to my mind being a bit wrapped up in sci-fi, but maybe someone's cloning feet!!!

    I guess realistically it could just be someone that has a liking to dismembering people or something like that.... Perhaps its really just an accident that for some reason really does involve three different people of the same shoe size?

    I'd like to know if that was done by blood, DNA, or "eye test."

    Maybe the feet had hair on the top, or maybe they were wearing mens size shoes?

    That's a really weird mystery though... If it was foul play and these people are still alive then I'm sure they would have called the police station by now. If they are dead then where are the bodies? If it was an accident someone at a hospital nearby would know about it.

    Eh, you meet hairy women with big feet if you look hard enough.

    I'd assume it was intentional, you don't lose three right legs together by accident. If they are alive, I doubt they want to be anymore. Seriously though, I'm calling for mafia or body part smuggling.

    Dad said it could very well be an anatomist/dissector messing around.
    The bodies they're supposed to cremate, they frist cut off the right foot and throw it into the sea. Once the body's turned to ashes, you can't tell if its missing a foot.
