Skip to comments.Ninth foot washes up on Pacific coast

The ninth human foot to wash up in the Pacific Northwest since 2007 was found Friday morning on an island about 50 kilometres south of Seattle, say police
A tourist strolling along a beach found the foot Friday on the east side of Whidbey Island, one of nine islands located in Island County about 48 kilometres north of Seattle, according to Island County Detective Ed Wallace.
Just a foot no shoe; no sock, Det. Wallace told The Globe and Mail
Det. Wallace said the latest foot is, based on its size, either from a juvenile or a female, and has likely been in the water for less than two months. He said it does not appear to have been severed.
Police have no idea yet what to make of the discovery. Were just in the infancy of this, he said.

There’s evil, afoot!
UFO aliens eat everything but discard the feet.
it does not appear to have been severed.
Sooo, it was attached to a leg?
That’s what I say.... WTF???
If there is a FOOT and no “rest of the body” it damn well IS Severed.
Does not appear to be severed...... somebody tickled it off the ankle?
Reminds me of Dr. White, MIB: ‘You can be sure that the parts are whole, wherever they are, uh, intact..’
Any plane crashes in the area?
I read the feet are often separated when the person is in a plane crash.
My dictionary says “cutting, slicing” or “removed by force”.
The only other option is that decomposition caused it to fall off.
“Did they cut off the foot?”
“Nope, just haven’t built the rest of the body yet...........Here’s you sign”
If the authorities search for a juvenile or a female missing one foot would that be profiling?
I collected stuff along beaches around there as a kid. I found a Japanese float once. Stuff floats in from across the ocean. I also so got locked in a outhouse on the beach, but that is a story for another thread.
Water does some horrible damage to the body of a drowned body. Try matching DNA with missing persons
They identified the person to whom the foot belonged...her name is Ilean.
Nope, just separated
Probably some parts from the dead bodies the Chinese immigrants through over the side from the ship with like 500 people on it last week trying to get to Canada.
Seems that it is always a foot, and the second foot of the pair is never found. Coincidence, I think not. A nut job killer with a strange sense of humor comes to mind. ;-)
Bodies come apart and break into little pieces when pounded by surf along the bottom and shore - especially so on rocky shores. It’s one of those things that people don’t talk about, but it’s not uncommon.
The last time an article about this was posted (many moons or so ago), seems like all the feet found were either all left or all right feet, can’t remember which. I don’t think the surf would be so discriminating. And Always just a foot, never a skull, and arm or a hip, just a foot.
I wonder if it belongs to any of those single shoes I see along the highway....never a pair.....
Why does “five dollar, foot long” keep ringing in my head when I go to the beach?....
wait just a second... nine feet, nine islands...
think maybe this ‘foot mystery’ has run its course?
Feet are often protected by shoes and hold together much better. Nothing about other body parts would cause them to float, aside from intact bodies.
As for rights or lefts being more prevalent, the sample size is very small. Get up to 10 or more and there is a statistically relevant trend.
He said it does not appear to have been severed.
If it has not been severed then it is still attached. Who writes this stuff?
My dictionary says separated. So if it is no longer attached it is separated and thereby technically severed.
“If it has not been severed then it is still attached. Who writes this stuff?”
Writing headlines and news copy has become sketchy at best.
I’m surprised that when the count reached 9 feet they didn’t refer to it as 3 yards.
