Investigators have made some progress in solving the mystery of the severed feet (encased in sneakers) that have been washing up on a beach near Vancouver. DNA testing has linked one of the feet to a depressed man who disappeared a year ago. Two of the five feet belonged to one man and one foot was from a woman, but neither of these people have been identified, and it is no longer believed that the feetare from air crash victims.
A sixth "foot" was a hoax: an animal paw that had been put inside a sneaker. The International Herald Tribune quotes local sheriff Tim Shields as saying, "We'll be consulting with oceanographers yet again?and we will be comparing the information obtained from the sheriff's department with our list of missing persons to see if we can make a possible link." Like the anthrax mystery, this mystery will eventually be solved.
