A Mortuary worker could be behind the discovery of five separate feet on Canadian beaches in recent months.

Five human feet all detached at the ankle and wearing trainers have come ashore along a 60-mile stretch of the Georgia Strait, a long gulf between the mainland and the eastern side of Vancouver Island. A sixth foot washed ashore last week has now turned out to be a hoax a decomposed animal paw placed in a trainer.

Police initially suspected the feet four of which were all right feet came from plane crash victims but that has now been discounted. An emerging theory is that they were thrown into the water by a mischievous mortuary worker who would have access to corpses.

A somewhat pedestrian theory I feel.
