Six Feet Surface

newspaperLew lives in British Columbia and he sent me a note this morning.

Another foot today in Campbell River - this makes 6 in all. There are also 8 young men; in the same time frame gone missing???

Cheers

Lew knows I'm following the severed foot watch in BC. My last update was May 26 when a fourth right foot washed ashore near Nanaimo. Now, in the span of a week, two more sneakered feet have been found in Campbell River. That's six feet in less than a year.

The Times Columnist does a good recap of this mystery.

The first foot was found in a size-12 sneaker last Aug. 20 on Jedediah Island, between Lasqueti and Texada islands.

The second foot, in a size-12 Reebok, was found on Gabriola Island, off Nanaimo, six days later.

The third foot was found on Valdes Island, south of Gabriola, on Feb. 8.

The fourth was found on May 22 on Kirkland Island, off Richmond.

The fifth was found off Westham Island in Ladner on Monday.

THE BBC ARTICLE SAYS ALL BUT ONE IS THE SAME SIDE FOOT - AND THE FIRST TWO ARE BOTH SIZE 12 - YET THEY DON'T SUSPECT ANYTHING FISHY? (NO PUN INTENED.. WELL MAYBE I INTENDED IT A LITTLE)

The latest (sixth) foot was a hoax foot.

Somebody put an animal foot in a sneaker and left it on the beach.
