Starting from August the 20th, 2007,
multiple detached human feet have been discovered on
on the Pacific Northwest coasts of the Salish Sea
in British Colombia, Canada and in the the US.
These detached human feet are found in a partially decomposed state,
wearing running shoes in all cases.
Another thing that makes these incidents strange is that
就是 除了脚 并没有在这些地区及周围
no other parts of the body, other than feet
have ever been discovered in or around the region.
The last such discovery happened on 6th of May of this year.
A simple and seemingly plausible explanation for these findings
could be that the feet may be those people who died in a boating accident
or plane crash in the ocean or those who committed suicide in the sea.
Decomposition may separate the foot from the body
because the ankle is relatively weak,
and the buoyancy would allow the shoe to float away.
What goes against this hypothesis is the rarity of such cases.
Detached feet don’t usually float and finding feet
and not the rest of the bodies has been deemed extremely unusual.
Finding TWO feet has been given “a million to one odds”,
and thus “an anomaly”.
The finding of the THIRD foot made it the first time.
Three such discoveries had been made so close to each other anywhere in the world.
The discovery of the FOURTH detached feet
made the investigators suspect some serious human interference.
令人惊讶的是 目前为止 在该地区被发现的
To your surprise, NINETEEN detached feet have been discovered
in the region so far, with only two match pairs.
Out of 17 individuals who seems to have died,
only 3 have been identified – a missing fisherman,
a depressed man, and a woman who jumped from a bridge.
Judging from the making of the shoes,
some individuals are believed to have belonged to far-off places like India.
If these extremely rare incidents are totally driven by natural causes,
why are they observed in abundance in only this part of the world?
If there is some human interference,
why would anyone release the feet and increase its chances of getting caught?
Or are these some cult practice or religious sacrifice?
There’s too many questions and no satisfactory answer.
