from the Canadian Press:
VANCOUVER - Experts from police to forensic pathologists are at a loss to explain, or even identify, who belongs to six different feet that have washed ashore in British Columbia since last August.
Another foot was discovered Wednesday near Campbell River, on Vancouver Island, bringing to six the number of feet found, disembodied and still encased in a running shoe. So far, DNA testing hasn't helped identify the remains and the absence of explanation has fed wild rumours.
In addition predictable puns and endless parade of off-colour jokes, followers of the case online have offered up imaginative theories and genuine sympathy for the victims and their unknown families.
"Please people, quit the tasteless jokes about the feet," said a comment posted by "Anonymous Anthropologist" on one media website.
"These are real people with real families and loved ones. People are really hurting over their lost loved ones, so have some modicum of human decency."
Still another urged readers to ditch the puns and show some concern.
"Foot puns aside (and who could resist), it sounds as if we got another damned serial killer loose in the Lower Mainland. Watch out for creeps in speedboats hanging around local islands in the middle of the night."
