Robitaille first spotted the shiny, black winter boot earlier this month as he chugged across the 20-hectare farm in his tractor.

I am leaning towards a serial killer who seems to leave a calling card. Why no other body parts? I find it very strange to say the least.

I said this was a serial killer from day one. The police up there do not want to scare people but its quite obvious someones running around hacking off feet. Serial killers travel around to avoid detection.
