VANCOUVER - A fifth human foot has washed ashore in southwestern B.C., and this time it's a left one.
Police say two people out for a walk spotted a left foot floating in water off Westham Island on Monday morning. Four other feet have washed up on shorelines along islands in B.C. in the last year; all have been right feet wearing socks and shoes.
Const. Sharlene Brooks of the Delta Police said officials are working with the BC Coroner's office to see if this foot is linked to any other partial remains recovered in the province.
Westham Island is at the mouth of the Fraser River, about 25 kilometres south of Vancouver.
While the similarities to the other found feet is strong, she said there's no indication this foot is related to the other cases.
