Possible human foot found ashore
A shoe with what is believed to be a human foot was found on a Clallam County beach, about 14 miles from the Canadian shoreline, and U.S. authorities are working with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to see if there's a connection to five feet that have washed ashore there.
Clallam County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin said the Washington shoe is similar to three of those found in Canada: the remains appear to be from a human right foot and were inside a man's low-cut athletic shoe, possibly used for hiking...............snip.........snip
Since August 2007, four men's' feet and a woman's right foot were found on Canadian beaches. The RCMP announced last month none of the feet were forcibly severed. Police discovered two of the feet belonged to the same man and determined a sixth foot found earlier this year was not human.Authorities said a woman walking along Jim Creek found the foot Friday and reported it to the Clallam County Sheriff's Office early Saturday.
"She could see sand in the shoe and when she removed the sock, she could tell there were bones and probably decomposing flesh," Peregrin said of the woman, who found the shoe in seaweed near milepost 34 on state Route 112................snip
"But those similarities you can't ignore," Peregrin said. "We want to make sure our investigation is coordinated."
