We've been following the strange story feet washing ashore on the Salish Sea shore (Pacific Northwest).
By our count:
* 10 have washed ashore since 2007
* 2 fakes have been planted
* 1 early foot was found in 1999
* 2 pairs are officially matched
And now one of the two pairs has been identified as belonging to a missing man from Surrey, England, no further details provided.
This is the third identified ... body, for lack of a better word.
Interestingly, as the incidents have become more numerous, the officially released details have been become more vague. Early on, shoe size, left/right, color, make, and gender were identified. The 2 most recent findings seem to have been reported without a left/right designation; 3 of the 5 most recent reports seemed to have failed to commit to a gender designation.
Why the increasing vagueness even as more concrete details (like matches to actual missing people) are apparently being discovered?
