A human foot was brought to the Chico State anthropology department for identification after a couple found it while they walked along the Sacramento River on Friday.

The couple discovered the foot while hiking near Dog Island Park in Red Bluff at about 1:37 p.m., said Tehama County Sheriff Clay Parker. The foot, which still had rotting flesh attached to the bones, was found inside a black tennis shoe.

The foot will be put through DNA testing at Chico State's Physical Anthropology Human Identification Lab to determine who the foot belonged to, Parker said. ...link (http://media.www.theorion.com/media/storage/paper889/news/2009/03/25/News/Chico.State.Lab.Helps.Id.Severed.Foot-3681526.shtml)
