Coroner matches pair of mysterious feet

December 7, 2008


— A coroner has matched a pair of dismembered female feet that mysteriously washed up on the shores of British Columbia.

The British Columbia coroner said Friday it had matched a female right foot discovered on Canada’s West coast in November with a left foot discovered in May.

Both of the feet were encased in New Balance running shoes.

They were among five feet that have mysteriously floated ashore along the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the British Columbia mainland since August 2007.

A sixth foot was found on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula about 30 miles west of Port Angeles in August. The peninsula is separated from B.C.’s Vancouver Island by the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

All six feet were found in athletic shoes.

“In all cases, these remains appear to have naturally separated from the body,” said the B.C. Coroners Service.
