Follow-up to post about mystery shoe-clad feet washing up on shore in the Pacific Northwest: The majority have been identified as belonging to aquatic suicides (e.g. bridge jumpers).

It's not ring to be suicide, but rather homicide. For this thread anyway.

Not sure if this thread is going to stick around, but it is interesting to get some closure on the story. Thanks.

Yeah, not so much something mefi-related or notable in terms of the site beyond us having had to delete a few Oh Hey Another Foot posts over the years. Weird story but if there's a postworthy update it should be a post to the front page, and if not just give it a pass.
