Another Foot Has Washed Up On A West Coast Beach

Yet another foot has washed up on a West Coast beach, and once again there is not a sole that has any idea whose it is or how it got there:

The right foot was found by a tourist on Whidbey Island, about 50 kilometres north of Seattle, on Friday morning.

“Based on the size, we’re estimating it belongs to either a female or a juvenile,” Island County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Det. Ed Wallace said in an interview. “Based on the condition, we’re estimating it’s been in the water less than two months.”

He said the foot was found without a shoe or a sock, and the tourist was quite startled by the discovery.

Wallace said based on the information police have gathered, they don’t believe the foot matches any missing persons cases in the area.

Officers plan to reach out to surrounding jurisdictions, including B.C., to see if any of their cases might fit.

Seven feet have been found on B.C. shores since August 2007.

Since the police can’t figure this out for the life of them, and detectives from Washington to BC are out of ideas and clues, I believe now is the right time to bring in the only person that can solve the mystery of the beached foot: the Prince that was boning Cinderella.

Even if the Prince showed up to the house where the woman with the one foot lived, and say she had a few ugly sisters that dug the Prince, even if they tried the shoe on, it’ll never fit. There is only one person whose foot will fit perfectly inside that sneaker, and only the Prince that was boning Cinderella can find this out.

    So the BC high tide line has grown 7 feet in three years. Must be global warming.

    No sole, we prefer halibut; just for the you-know-what.

    Cheers

    I have two theories on this: 1: This ongoing “joke” is being perpetrated by a morgue or funeral home assistant,who occasionally removes a foot from a corpse,just out of sheer boredom with his job.

    He probably tosses them out of his 16 foot (NPI) fishing boat about half a mile offshore,then waits for the inevitable “discovery”,and laughs in his own high-pitched,ghoulish way.

    2: The same MA is a foot fetishist,and once he’s had his way with the foot, tosses it from his fishing boat,etc.,etc.

    3: this one is too frightening to comtemplate: there’s another Willy Pickton operating out here,and the RCMP haven’t connected the disappearance of seven one-legged hookers from the Downtown Eastside to the beached feet.

    YET!

    Could be a marauding shark with a small appetite.

  5. dmorris Says:

    Mr.F,in B.C., sharks don’t “maraud”.

  6. Mr Fnortner Says:

    I would like to know more about the well-mannered sharks in BC, I really would, but I need to go sort my sock drawer. Elsewhere, many sharks actually maraud.

    This from the Royal BC Museum:
    SHARKS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
    Eleven species of sharks live in the waters of British Columbia, ranging in length from about 70 cm to more than 12 metres. The largest, the Basking Shark, can weigh almost 4000 kg. Of the eleven BC sharks, seven grow to be 3 metres (10 ft) or more in length. The eleven species with their maximum sizes are:
    Brown Cat Shark 68 cm
    Spiny Dogfish 1.6 m
    Soupfin Shark 2 m
    Sevengill Shark 2.6 m
    Salmon Shark 3 m
    Blue Shark 3.8 m
    Pacific Sleeper Shark 7.6 m
    Thresher Shark 7.6 m
    Sixgill Shark 8 m
    Great White Shark 11.2 m
    Basking Shark 12 m

    I’ve seen the basking shark and the blue shark,up close when working on a commercial fishing troller. Apparently the six-gill is the most common in Georgia Strait.

    I’ve never heard of a great white shark being spotted here ( apart from Gordon Campbell) although I suppose they pass by the West coast of Vancouver Island.

    If any of the feet were remains from a shark attack, surely forensic medical examiners would have seen bite marks where the foot ends.

    Good luck with that sock drawer.

    @dmorris, Sounds like your experience in this area far exceeds mine. I never worked a trawler, though I did go on three Crusades, and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once. I yield to your far greater knowledge. (BTW, great white sharks aren’t spotted–they’re plain.) :-)

    While on a charter boat in the Tasman Sea I caught a mako shark. Nasty little devil, he/she was. No spots at all, unlike those great whites (I hear they are very spotty). The mako hasa mouth like some of the chicks I use to trawl for at a couple of clubs in the city of light. For bait we used Axe for Men and cheap vodka. It was like chub for the chubbies.
