The Right Foot

Helloooo
It has been a while, I am not sure if this was posted yet or not... but this story hits close to home... and close to Death's Door!

Third right foot discovered in Gulf Islands
Latest foot found on Valdes Island; police not sure if foul play is involved
Rob Shaw, Times Colonist
Published: Friday, February 15, 2008
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.

The latest foot, still in its sneaker, was found last Friday on Valdes Island, a small community near Nanaimo that does not have regular ferry service and is accessible only by private boat or float plane.

RCMP say they're not sure whether foul play is involved and are trying to match any missing-person cases to the severed foot.

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.

"It is unusual," said RCMP spokeswoman Const. Annie Linteau. "We are in the preliminary stages of this particular investigation, and of course we will not enter into speculation."

The Vancouver Island Major Crime Unit has sent detectives to investigate the cases, she said.

Meanwhile, the latest foot has been turned over to the B.C. Coroners Service for forensic testing.

Now a fourth foot has been found. No word yet as to whether it's another right foot though.

Fourth severed foot found on B.C. coast
Canwest News Service


VANCOUVER - Police said Thursday another severed human foot has been found in British Columbia, the fourth such incident in a year.

This time, the foot was found on Kirkland Island near the mouth of the Fraser River in Richmond, just south of Vancouver.

Richmond RCMP said a passerby made the grisly discovery about noon Thursday and have confirmed that it too was found inside a shoe.

It is unclear if it is a right foot or a left foot.

Police have made no arrests in any of the cases, although there are various theories that organized crime is involved.

In February, a severed right foot was found on Valdes Island in the Strait of Georgia, in a location accessible only by boat or float plane.

And in August of 2007, two severed feet were found within a week of each other.

In one instance, a Vancouver couple taking a walk on Gabriola Island came across a single black-and-white size 12 Reebok shoe.

A closer look revealed a partially decomposed right foot that appeared to belong to a man.

In the other, a Washington state family visiting Jedidiah Island also uncovered a right foot that may have washed ashore. It, too, was in a size 12 shoe.

This is turning into something tailor-made for a Slade novel. If I didn't know better, I'd think Slade was planting the things on these beaches as a prelude to promoting #14 or something. :wink:

Mbwun,

Actually, it's not a prelude to # 14; it's a flashback to # 9.

As you'll recall, in DEATH'S DOOR, Mephisto's henchmen were leaving disfigured bodies on the beaches of the islands in the waterways around Vancouver.

Slade,

You can't convince me that the cogwheels in your brain aren't trying to figure out some way to work this into the plot of another novel - I can hear them whirring all the way out here in Langley. :P

Something on the lines I think the implication being Slade, By the Pricking Of my Thumbs Something Wicked This Way Comes. Macbeth Act IV, scene 1.

And you know Jay, Mbwun's right, your bloody salivatin'!:shock:

Ha Ha EZ that was funny, that morbid humour is my kind of humour. Wonder if any given person who owns a foot has a leg to stand on.

Slade,

What would your theory be, amputations thrown away, serial killer, shark attacks or what?
