(Newser) – One of five dismembered feet that have mysteriously washed ashore near Vancouver over the past year has been linked by DNA to a depressed man who disappeared a year ago, police announced. Investigators released no other information at the family's request. The foot is the first to be identified in the bizarre case. All of the dismembered feet were in sneakers, and all but one came from men.
