Human Foot Washes Ashore at Rockaway Beach

Police searched for other remains, but none were found.

Police are investigating the discovery of a human foot that apparently washed ashore in Pacifica on Sunday.

Officers received a report at 3:15 p.m. Sunday that the foot had been found in the Rockaway Beach area, south of Old County Road, police said.

The officers confirmed that the object found was, in fact, a human foot, and called the San Mateo County coroner's office.

A deputy coroner responded and collected the foot, said.

Authorities searched the beach for additional remains but none were found.

The incident remains under investigation.

"Since August 2007, as many as fourteen detached human feet have been discovered on the coasts of the Salish Sea in British Columbia (Canada) and Washington" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salish_Sea_human_foot_discoveries

Well, one thing is for certain. The foot definitely didn't belong to Fix Pacifica editor Steve Sinai. If it did, there would have been a mouth attached.
