(CBC) A B.C. family visiting the west coast of Vancouver Island over the weekend found a shoe with a dismembered foot inside — the latest in a series of similar discoveries throughout the region since 2007.
Charlotte Stephens says her family was walking along Botanical Beach when her husband made the grisly discovery.
"He picked it up and brought it out on to the beach, and we had a look at it for about five minutes and we thought, it almost looks like there is an actual foot bone in it," she said.

Stephens said they reported the finding to Sooke RCMP.
The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the remains are human, and investigators are now trying to identify them.
