    "A person who was walking along the shore in Richmond called to report they had found a shoe with a skeletonized human foot inside,'' Lt. Mark Gagan said today.

    Officers responding to the report around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday found a badly decomposed body on the rocks about 50 feet away, below Sandpiper Spit, a manmade jetty of homes on stilts.

    "There was evidence that the body had been submerged in the water for a considerable amount of time,'' Gagan said. http://www2.cbs5.com/localwire/loca...HeadlineNews/RICHMOND-BODY/resources_bcn_html

    I wonder if that shoe and foot belonged to the body that they found? There are still some of Laci's body parts not accounted for. I look for them to wash up some day.

    I wonder if this person was dumped into the water before Laci or after? I hope they find out who this person is and who committed the crime.

    Until I found Webslueth I had no idea of the number of missing people, murdered people identified and murdered people unidentified in this day and age. The number is just huge. It gets depressing at times to read about all of the people just on this site. To many. We live in a evil world and it is really scary.

    I think it is shocking that there are so many unidentified people. The technology is there to id them. But because of the cost of DNA testing, and the limited facilities to do the testing, nothing is being done to push the agencies to test the unidentified for DNA and to store it in a database where matches could potientally be made.

    Bodies are dumped in that bay continuously. During the search for Laci, they found body parts of at least three other people, and then there was that woman who was also pregnant who was dumped there several months before. The name Norma Gonzales comes to mind, but it may not be right.

    Sadly, if you murder someone in that area of the state that's where you toss the remains.

    No small wonder Laci's remains ended up there too. Very sad.

    Wow, I did not know they found other body remains while searching for Lacy! Do you know if those were ever identified?

    Yes, I think they were ID'd. It didn't even make the news, except an interview with the diver's in the SacBee at the time, as sort of bits of interest surrounding the search for Laci. The diver said it was grueling work, and very upsetting, and they had been warned ahead of time they'd probably locate other human remains in their search. I think one of the remains was only a partial - like, a leg or something. But I believe all were identified.

    Can you imagine living in that area? "Oh, I think I will go down to the beach for a walk and see who has washed up!"

    Another mystery solved (to some degree). Thanks heavens for his family.

    That looks like a tough one - the reconstruct and his photo were not real close IMO.

    Thanks for the update, princess.

    I'm glad for his family to know what happened to him.

    I guess its also a message to us that the reconstructions really are estimates.

    I am glad this has been solved as so many take so long or have yet to be solved. I see strong similarities between his picture and the recon. It is the weight in the recon that seems to be off. His face shows he may have been quite a bit heavier in life than his recon shows. This is a good lesson to be learned--look at the basic facial structure behind the soft tissue. His eye orbits and the triangular lower part of his face are evident in both the recon and in his pic.

    They got the hair really close, but that is about it. Yes, at least his family can have him back and put him to rest. Bless them.
