Subject: the fifth foot drops
Security: Public
Breaking news from the Islands Of Lost Feet. A fifth foot
has been found near Vancouver. Unlike the other four, this one is a left foot, which at least means there's a possibility that it matches one of the ones already found and doesn't herald another victim.
The ever-so-slightly-spooky Dr Ebbesmeyer has spoken up on the subject again.

Myself, I subscribe to the Crashed Plane Theory. I can see a scenario where a storm disturbed the wreck and the disarticulated feet, still in their sneakers, floated free. And as Professor Ebbesmeyer says, the right feet would tend to float in one direction and the left feet in another. The authorities should be looking off the coast for the left feet, but the Pacific is a big place.
To me, that sounds solid and reasonable and rather mundane - and therefore more likely to be true - rather some wild idea of serial killers or homicidal biker gangs. Although we can't discount them.
If a fifth right foot turns up, it's not the plane-crash victims. Myself, I hope it is the plane-crash victims and the feet somehow give a clue to the location of the wreck so it and the rest of the remains can be recovered. That would be a hell of a story, wouldn't it?

Yep, it would be... and you sound SO much like a journalist! LOL!

I agree, the Crashed Plane Theory is the more appealing of the scenarios. It will be interesting to watch how it pans out. Be sure and keep us posted if there are more feet...

Yay! After twenty-four years I finally sound like a journalist! Now all I have to do is try to look like one. And write like one...
The Crashed Plane Theory is the one that makes most sense to me. Of course, we can't discount murderers who dump their victims in the sea, but we have no evidence for that, and we do have evidence of a plane crash from which four bodies were not recovered.

This is true. But it is all pretty creepy to me, regardless of the reason.
