Police said they are reviewing almost 300 missing persons files and haven't been able to match any other DNA from the feet to any missing people.

This is what it says so I think they have not yet been able to match any of the other feet to missing persons. But, ya, it looks like one of the 'victims' was a depressed man so possibly suicide.

If you read through the article it says that two of the other feet belonged to the same person and it mentioned the other foot too. I may have read it wrong though.

I called it early on, I still think its a serial killer dumping bodies or feet up river. The police always play this down so they dont look stupid.
Its when the police dont release any information that you have something to worry about.

Well. They have identified a foot but aren't telling much more than that.

I just tried the link to the 'Sun' and they are asking for $12 to view the article, as it is no longer posted.

What was the synopsis of the article? Anything relevant to the mystery?

Perhaps the feet were encased in some form of weighty substance (concrete? chains? etc) and the entire body was dropped into the ocean.

Aquatic life eats away at the body, leaving only the weighted down foot which breaks free due to ocean currents or some such and floats to the surface only to be carried inshore.

I've been toying with the carnivorous aquatic life angle for a while now myself.

My way of seeing it is, the feet are covered with rubber (shoes), something that isn't easily bitten through... hence, the rest of the body gets devoured regardless of where it is, and the feet remain un-eaten and float to their final destination.

That's a great point but what kind of carnivorous aquatic life in that part of Canada could dismember people? I'm honestly asking because I don't know lol.. I mean, I've seen canadian fishing shows involving trout, pike, and walleye but that's about it. What else is there native to that area?

Canada has oodles of 'meat eating' aquatic life, as do all other oceans.

Scavengers such as crabs and lobsters would probably do the most damage, but many different species of sharks frequent Canadian waters as well.

I remember seeing a video/program of a how fast Crabs and other sea scavengers work. I believe it was documentary on Emilia Ernhart, and how fast her body could have disappeared without a trace.

A free meal is a free meal.

Has it ever been mentioned how deteriorated the feet actually were? How long they had been in the water, etc.?

You would think after a period of time in the water, there would be nothing left, whether wearing shoes or not.

True, unless it was encased in something else for a period of time before being freed and floating into shore ie: concrete, chains, etc etc.

The feet are descibed as having been 'ripped off'. My first thought's upon hearing that are perhaps a shark? or eels?

Yet a seventh has been found:

A severed foot - the seventh such find since August 2007 - has washed up on Canada's Pacific shore, police said, rekindling speculation of a murder mystery, or airplane or boat accident.

Another foot washes up off Canada

Could be a cannibalistic serial killer of some sort, who isn't particularly fond of the taste of feet?

missing feet? wow...
well how many people go missing in canada per day?
whoever is doing it he has a good record of no escaped kills i guess...
if noones come forward misssing a foot or talking about some psyco tryna sniff thier little piggies then pulling a knife...
maybe its a mafia thing?
wierd that no other body parts besides feet should wash up thought.. and still in shoes?
seems to me like somebody wants the police to find them..

Yeah, this story is really bizarre, to say the last. The burning question on everyone's mind is "Why no body, but only feet?" Makes no sense at all.

Here's a video link (hope it still works), just watched 5 mins ago

Regarding my post on page 1:

It is indeed possible that a trap was set up to 'hobble unsuspecting people running through the area. Here's an article from the northern Territory in Australia about a 'man-trap' which was found in a remote bushwalk:

Man trap found on Northern Territory bushwalk

A MAN-made trap designed to maim or kill has been found along a popular Northern Territory tourist bushwalk.

The sinister booby-trap construction was discovered at the mouth of the Finniss River - about 100km southwest of Darwin - and is believed to have been made to injure tourists, reports the Northern Territory News.

A local resident said the trap consisted of six sharpened sticks that were stuck vertically into the base of a one-metre-wide square hole.

Well. I think the police have found their main suspect.

Second line.

Part of me is thinking what if these feet are from Fishermen lost at sea. Their bodies would have been weighed down due to the nature of their clothing, thick layers and wooly shirts that easily absorb water. They would have died within minutes in the waters but parts of their bodies preserved due to the climatic nature of the oceanic area.
The sea animals would have had the flesh and skin decayed through gradual salt corrosion, but the feet preserved in boots would have broken free and drifted along with the current until they made their way ashore to Canada. I'm sure this has already been thought of as a possibility by the investigators though and had such deaths been the cause then DNA would have identified the victims within days. But a thought anyway.
