Forensic experts are examining two severed right feet found within days of each other on separate islands off central Vancouver Island.
Police say the latest remains – a foot inside a men's size-12 Reebok sneaker – were found Sunday on a heavily used trail on Gabriola Island near Nanaimo.
Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Garry Cox said that finding two severed right feet on relatively nearby islands at such a close interval is odd.
"It's very strange and unusual," he said. "I've never seen anything like this before.
"We've had body parts found, but it's usually from somebody who has died and animals scattered the body parts around."
