PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - A severed foot was found inside a hiking boot Saturday at a construction site in Kitsap County, but officials have no idea how it got there.
Deputy Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said the foot had a sock on it, and it was wearing an athletic style hiking boot.
Workers had seen the boot lying at the construction site, near Bethel Road SE and Lund Avenue in Port Orchard, a few days before but didn't take much notice of it.
Then on Saturday at about 6:30 p.m. some of the construction workers decided to take a closer look at the boot. That's when they saw the severed foot inside and called deputies to report it, Wilson said.
He said the foot had not "been there forever," but he couldn't say how long it had been there.
Wilson said he believes the boot was dragged to the construction site, by either an animal or piece of equipment, and was not severed where it was found.
Officials didn't say whether it was a right or left foot, or whether it had belonged to a male or female.
A number of severed feet have been found inside athletic shoes up and down the shorelines of lower British Columbia in recent months, but there was no indication whether this foot was linked to them in any way.
None of the severed feet in Canada were found at inland locations like the Port Orchard foot.
The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and coroner are investigating.
