Reports of shoes containing severed feet being found on coastal beaches in the Pacific Northwest have been in the media for more than a decade. Perhaps some (or even most) of these have logical explanations such as boating accidents, but MAYBE it is something sinister? I picture some gangster threatening to cut off an underling's Nike for sneaking a peek at his significant other's behind


Note to self: don't wear runners when going boating.

Sandals: ok.
Surf-socks: ok.
Loose fishing boots: ok.
Flip-flops: ok.
Kicks: no-no-no!

I can't seem to find it but I would like to - just to compare.

It's still an awful thing - and IMO not quite the natural course of events.

I can't imagine what they'd name this 'serial killer' - if there be one.

I know, it's creepy, I just checked out a piece of land and there was a pair of women's shoes, that looked like someone was pulled out of them, they were fairly new and clean, placed neatly, and the liners were slipped out at the heels like someone was pulled out of them. About called the cops.

I think this is just a current based situation, like the giant, disgusting trash island out in the middle of the ocean.

I bet there's some feet in this place

The reasoning makes sense but it makes me wonder why no feet wash up on the East Coast, or in Southern California, etc.. I've lived near the Atlantic Ocean my entire life (50 yrs) and never heard of a foot washing up on the Cape or any where else. Just strange.

Unless it has to do with which way the currents flow?

Gulf stream maybe. Plus the weather moves offshore in the east.

I happen to live South of there on the Wa coast. This seems to happen from time to time around here. I just hope that I'm not the one to find one of these. We had an issue with a fary go under a few weeks ago. There are likely to be some more in the near future.

I've followed this mystery over the years. Possible that this lays to rest, that the majority of these aren't from the Pacific Ocean by means of a tsunami in the past but rather local. Now if more of these can be identified, such as in the OP, for closure of people missing, from capsized boats and suicides to missing people cases.

Also that, would wager these feet attached shoes are found from the ligaments decaying over time rather than a percentage of killers and or killers cutting up the bodies as the sneakers float. Not to say it doesn't happen around there, as with other places,there's been about two cases in recent years where killers were disposing a body as such but neither case had to do with dumping the parts in Puget Sound, or that is known about.

The currents push sea debris to Alaska, BC, Washington, and the upper North Pacific Northwest. They tracked this when some Chinese rubber duckies went overboard during a storm. They then found the Gyres of plastic and trash in the North Pacific.

Debris from the 2011 tsunami also hit BC and AK.

These severed feet threads remind me the missing 411 stuff. Nobody is paying attention. I wonder who these people are missing limbs.

As a Criminal Minds fan... just saying that the limbs seem to be mostly Caucasian.

Human feet have been eerily washing up on shorelines across Canada's westernmost province for over a decade.

On Monday, the British Columbia Coroners Service appealed for the public's help in identifying the latest foot, which was discovered inside a light gray Nike sneaker on a rocky beach in West Vancouver in September.

The sneaker appeared to be in relatively new condition, and evidence indicates the foot is that of a man younger than 50. But DNA tests were unable to match the remains to any of the profiles for missing persons, according to a press release from the coroners service.


This is the 15th human foot found on the shores of British Columbia since August 2007, according to the coroners service. The feet were all clad in shoes, and most belonged to men.

abcnews.go.com, Feb. 13, 2019 - After another human foot washes ashore in Canada, officials ask for help.

Crazy, right? Yet another limb lost and found on the beach in BC.

ATS has been reporting on this since at least 2008: Mystery deepens as 4th human foot found.

Not bad for a conspiracy theory site, huh?

And they all seem to involve Nike shoes!! Weird...
edit on 14-2-2019 by TEOTWAWKIAIFF because: eta total number found so far

I was just thinking about this thread the other day when I heard that yet ANOTHER foot had been discovered recently and they've ID'd the poor fellow that lost it. For some reason, the family assumes the "victim" is dead, but a missing foot doesn't automatically equate to losing one's life. He might be using a prosthetic or just hopping around? I shouldn't joke, I suspect the family is right. It is a weird mystery, to be sure.


A human foot found inside a boot that washed up on an island off of Washington state last month belonged to a man missing since 2016, authorities said Tuesday. Antonio Neill, who was 22 years old at the time of his disappearance, is now presumed dead, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said. The cause of death has yet to be determined as investigators continue to search the area where the remains were discovered.

"At least I know he has moved onto a better place and he can rest in peace, I hope," Neill’s mother, Jenny, told Q13 FOX. "But I won't stop fighting to find out what happened to him." Beachgoers discovered the foot on New Year’s Day while walking along Jetty Island, located 30 miles north of Seattle in the Puget Sound, KOMO News reported. The foot appeared to have been in the water for a long time before washing ashore, according to the station. Neill’s family reported him missing on Dec. 12, 2016. He had just gone with his mother to get a new driver's license because his wallet and car had been stolen, Q13 FOX reported. At the time, Neill was described as homeless with a history of depression, according to KOMO.

At least 14 severed feet have now been discovered in the waters of Northern Washington state and Southern British Columbia over the past 11 years, KOMO reported. The shoe-clad feet are thought by some to be the work of a serial killer, while others link the grim finds to natural disasters, or plane and boat accidents, according to the Guardian. Anyone with information about Antonio Neill’s disappearance is asked to call the department's anonymous tip line at 425-388-3845.

That's a really good point. There's been many more feet that have washed up in Canada on the BC coast that were never found out by the media and thus was never reported anywhere.
