11. THE SALISH SEA FOOT MYSTERY
Seriously a bit odd now. Since 2007, 16 dismembered feet have been found washed up on the shores of the Salish Sea. Most have been found in the Canadian province of British Columbia, but some on Vancouver Island and Washington State. The natural assumption was that the feet (most of which were still in shoes) had belonged to victims of a plane crash or boating accident.
Police and forensic teams remain baffled by the apparent lack of any other body parts and the suggestion of foul play hasn’t been ruled out. However in some of the regions where the feet have washed up the currents and tides make tracing a source virtually impossible; in addition, the feet could feasibly belong to someone who lived the other side of the world. While the identities of two of the feet have been confirmed, the others remain, err, outstanding.
