    A human foot was discovered washed up on a beach in Tacoma on Sunday.
    Tacoma Police say a size 6 boys boot was found along the shoreline of the Tideflats. The boot contained the remains of a human foot believed to be either a child or a small adult.
    Investigators believe the boot may have floated into the area from either the Puyallup River or the Puget Sound.

    Kyron's shoes were Skeechers brand, IIRC.

    Yes, this and BC have had quite the oddest amount of feet wash up. Half a dozen or so, the article says. Very odd.

    Ever since I moved to the NW I've heard about feet being washed ashore. It's bizarre!!!

    From the NY Post:

    So far, the owners of three of the nine feet have been identified, though the names have not been released to the press: the young woman who formerly owned the matching pair, and the young man to whom the first foot belonged. He was identified through the shoe.

    "His pair was from India, which was fairly unique," Dolan said. "We did a media fan-out, and the mother remembered buying that shoe with her son in India." It was determined that he committed suicide; of the other identified body, authorities will say only that her demise was not suspicious.

    That the identities of the other victims remains unknown is, to investigators, saddening. Both Canada and the United States have national missing-persons databases, and once a name is entered, authorities obtain the missing person's DNA from a toothbrush or other personal item. That none of these feet has been a match leads investigators to conclude that no one in the United States or Canada has reported them missing. That they are wearing expensive athletic shoes also discounts the theory that they're vagrants.

    Though people do donate some pretty expensive stuff to homeless shelters and charity shops at times. After it's been in the water a while, I don't know how easy it would be to say if the shoe was second hand or not.

    Another thing the article points out is the reason they are feet. The buoyancy of the shoes is what makes them float to shore.

    Shantina Smiley is my first thought.. I hope they find her one day.

    A boy I knew was washed away on the Oregon Coast 3 & 1/2 years ago; they've never found him. :(

    These feet that wash ashore fascinate me in a macabre way. The fact that so many wash ashore in Washington and Oregon must have something to do with the ocean currents.

    That shoe really does bear an uncanny resemblence to Kyron's style of shoe! I doubt it's connected but maybe it's at least a good omen - shoes float, so maybe they will find Kyron that way someday.

    I kind of think the feet washing up all over the place need their own thread, so we can better keep up on the happenings of this strange occurance...it is very interesting.

    the right foot was still inside a boy's size 6 "OzArk Trail" hiking boot and likely belonged to a juvenile or small adult. He says the boots were sold in Walmart stores from 2004 to 2005. (A hand me down from an older sibling or went missing that long ago?)
