    Tulsa, Okla. Police are searching an east Tulsa pond after a dog discovered a human foot in the water.

    UPDATE: Human foot found in East Tulsa


    Statement from Tulsa Police:

    On 10-25-2011 Tulsa Police Officers were called to the retention pond at 500 S Mingo. Upon
    arrival Officers found a detached left foot along with a female size 9 Saucony Jazz shoe. A
    citizen and their dog were playing near the pond when the dog went into the pond and emerged
    with the shoe and foot.
    TPD Crime Scene responded and called in the Office of The Medical Examiner. The foot was
    determined to be human and the Medical Examiner recovered and took possession of the foot
    and shoe. The Tulsa Police Department Dive Team is on scene and will begin a systematic
    search of the pond for any evidence this afternoon.
    The foot could have been in the pond for some time, possibly as late as last winter.

    Police Homicide Unit is releasing a photo of the shoe in hopes to gaining any information on an
    identification.

    Does anyone else think that shoe seems very small as if for a child or woman small in stature?

    To me that photo is decieving, that shoe does not look to be a size 9 female. I wear a size 8 to 9 and if I put my hand near my shoe, my hand appears much smaler than teh shoe. Opposite is true here. Phto hands looks large shoe small.

    So sad.

    I have the same pair - I bought them specifically because they make my size 11's look much smaller! Here they are (put iPad smart cover and hand next to it to give perspective)

    It does look small -- definitely not like a woman's 9! But I don't think it's a kid's shoe because the kid's Saucony Jazz has 5 shoelace holes (on each side) while the women's equivalent has 6 shoelace holes like the one found in the Tulsa pond.

    It looks more like a 6... I wonder if that's possible -- they're reading the size upside down? I'm sure they have other reasons for saying '9', but just a thought I had.

    Not to be overly graphic, but I wonder if the foot was disarticulated and if so, at what joint(s).
    Was that mentioned in MSM anywhere?

    Searching through OK MP's, and wondering if the remains match anyone in NamUs.

    Talk about being freaked out! Pick up a shoe the dog is playing with and the foot is still in it!!! I'd still be cleaning my pants. Where's the rest of the body?

    Strange that no one reported a missing person...unless they were from far away. I always wonder if the victim was a casualty of tornadoes in those states where they are prominent.

    Thanks, Truthful Lies.
    Glad to see any apparent human remains are not in your shoe.

    "There's not any kind of cut marks to indicate where it had been sawed off, there's no indication that tells us it was severed in any way or broken," said Sgt. Farley.

    "There's not any kind of cut marks to indicate where it had been sawed off, there's no indication that tells us it was severed in any way or broken," said Sgt. Farley.

    Theories on how the foot got into the pond? "I don't know, I don't know at all," said one woman watching the divers in action.

    "One of the crime scene detectives actually related to me that it looked like maybe even a fish or turtle more likely might have been gnawing on the body part, which is kind of creepy," said Sgt. Farley.

    "It's very creepy," said the woman.

    Police say the foot may have been in the water for several months, even as far back as last winter.

    Very, very creepy!
