Canadians are asking questions after a foot popping up along a British Columbia beach, this week, was found to be the 13th one discovered on the coastline over the past decade.
A man walking his dog discovered the 13th foot, found in a shoe along with part of a lower leg, on Thusday. It is unknown who that foot belonged to.
‘Our early analysis suggests these are human remains and we will do further investigation and testing … in the coming weeks,’ said Andy Watson, a spokesman for the BC Coroners Service, to CNN.

The remains also included a tibia and fibula bone.
According to the Coroners Service, all 12 feet found beforehand were human. Eight of the 13 were even determined to belong to six people.
Foul play is not suspected in any of the cases, but the Coroners Service would not reveal how it came to that conclusion.

Cause of death for the foot found this week is unknown, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Coroners Service are hoping to discover who it belongs to.
When asked why the feet have washed ashore, Watson said: ‘I’m not able to speak to’ the reason.
He added: ‘There’s no reason to believe that they (the cases) were connected in any way.’
