The Severed Feet Mystery

CNN reports on the sixth severed foot found in Canada. Some people call this the seventh because in June a hoax was discovered, which according to some maintains the sixth position, I suppose. We've discussed this case before, here and here, but alas the solution remains aloof.

The [newest] shoe -- a left New Balance running shoe -- was found about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on the south arm of the Fraser River by a Richmond, British Columbia, couple, police said.

The provincial coroners' office said in July that DNA tests determined that two of the five feet -- a right foot found February 8 and a left foot found June 16 -- were from the same male, but they said they didn't know to whom any of the feet belonged.

On the Beyond 90 Seconds web site you can read a very extensive report including all the evidence the amateur sleuth might require to crack the case. has an extensive archive (including numerous videos) concerning the missing feet mystery. The most popular story in the archive is Pig video lends insight into B.C.’s human feet mystery.

I'll take a stab at it. The Portland Oregon mafia, comprised mainly of dangerous Asian sects, has been dumping the dead bodies of their former competitors, who all wear running shoes, in the waters off British Columbia. Gradually, as the bodies decompose, the buoyancy of the running shoes causes them to float to the surface and eventually wash ashore.

What's your theory?


  1. I only skimmed the page, but was the race of the feet determined?

    I will certainly say your theory is unlikely as ligaments in the ankles will stay attacked to bone long before any other soft tissue remains.

    The condition of the foot is important as well, as the Ocean will do a good job at stripping any flesh from a body if given a short period of time undisturbed.

    My guess is the feet were severed. By who, or what, I have no idea.

  2. But, in all the reports they keep saying the feet were not severed.

  3. Got a coroner's report?

    I need more info!
