??!! Davy Jones’s Foot Locker
posted by June 24 at 13:03 PMon
Remember that sixth human foot that washed ashore in Canada last week?
It wasn’t human.
From the Independent:
“Human” remains found at the mouth of the Campbell River on Vancouver Island actually consisted of an animal paw mixed with seaweed, stuffed into a sock and inserted into an old adidas trainer.
The only thing more fucked up than people finding human feet on the beach? Other people planting fake human feet on the beach.
To recapitulate: The other five feet are real. Four are from men, four are from right feet. Nobody knows where they’re coming from. A serial killer? A people-smuggling attempt gone wrong? A box full of feet that’s only now rusted through and opened?
Canadian officials, who are treating the investigation as a criminal inquiry, have so far discounted just one potential explanation: a 2005 plane crash in the Georgia Strait, from which four men are still missing. The families of the victims were told yesterday that DNA samples from their loved ones did not match any of the genuine human remains.
Curiouser and curiouser.
