An Irish friend sent me this article from The Guardian, discussing a series of ghoulish discoveries on BC beaches:
The first was washed up in August on an isolated island in British Columbia. A 12-year-old girl beachcombing with her family found a size 12 running shoe with a human right foot still inside. Six days later a couple hiking around coves on another remote island found another size 12 right foot in a trainer under a tree trunk. Then, last month, another right foot was spotted, this time bobbing about in the water off a third island.
That’s a terrific starting point for a work of fiction. Why are right feet appearing on our coastlines?
Aha. Not a MeFi reader, I see. MetaFilter has been abuzz with this for several months.
Double: Indeed. I don’t consistently read MetaFilter, no. No particular reason.
Macabre, indeed! This has been on TV news/in the papers quite a bit for some time and current speculation is the human remains (especially third foot!) are not local and have washed up from afar…
For a while, there was speculation that the feet belonged to some of my family members, who died in a plane crash about 3 years ago. But I guess no connection has been found, since I have heard no more.
What do you expect from a city that has a place called Leg-In-Boot square!!?
