About 14 detached feet (in sport shoes) were found mysteriously on the shores between British Columbia and Washington in 2007. People had no idea why this was happening. There were many theories as to the cause such as natural disaster, supernatural causes or even serial killers, but the reality was a lot more sad.
Almost all of the shoes found belonged to suicide victims who jumped from bridges over the Fraiser River. Once the body lost life, it released gases that held it afloat, then soon it began to decompose and marine life began to feed on it. Feet shod in polymer-based sneakers, however, survived(fish can’t chew through them.)
