Hey, remember those creepy reports of severed feet washing ashore the coast of British Columbia, starting in August 2007 and continuing through 2008? I hadn’t heard of any more cases, so I had assumed that the findings had ceased. I was wrong. There was one severed foot found in (Oct.) 2009, and two more this year, one in August, and the latest one on the 14th of December, bringing the total to ten.
Here’s a summary via Wikipedia, of the macabre discoveries, to date:

According to Wikipedia:
…finding feet and not the rest of the bodies has been deemed unusual. Finding two feet has been given a “million to one odds” and has thus been described as “an anomaly”. The finding of the third foot made it the first time three such discoveries had been made so close to each other. The fourth discovery caused speculation about human interference and, statistically, was called “curious”,
Police in Tacoma, Washington say the latest foot discovery could possibly belong to a child.
A woman who has been following the case since the first severed foot was discovered, is preparing to publish a book titled, Someone Else’s Shoes with her own theory of where the feet are coming from.
What’s your theory?
