The remains of a human foot still encased in a shoe was found washed ashore near Tacoma about a week ago, raising to 10 the tally of feet found on Pacific Northwest beaches since 2007.Further details at the Vancouver Sun.
On Dec. 5, a man walking along the shore spotted the foot and called police. The foot has not been identified yet, but police believe it belonged to a juvenile or small adult.
"Our best guess someone in their mid-to-late teens," Tacoma Police spokesman Mark Fulghum said. The shoe, a boys' size 6 "Ozark Trail" hiking boot, was sold in Walmart Stores in 2004 and 2005.
