UPDATE 12:50 p.m. Sept. 16 – A bone that may be from a human has been found on Ocean Beach near the site of where a shoe containing a foot was discovered Sunday morning.
After initially recovering the shoe, National Park Police searched the area and found an additional bone, according to the Bay City News news service.
A severed human foot inside a running shoe washed up on Ocean Beach near Taraval Street Sunday morning.
A Golden Gate National Recreation Area beach patrol found it after receiving a call from a beach visitor, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
“What we have is a human foot, with some associated tissue, inside of a shoe,” Mark Powning, an investigator with San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office told the Chronicle.
It wasn’t clear how or when the foot and shoe got to Ocean Beach, but Powning said it didn’t seem to be the result of anything recent and “probably was rolling around the seabed for awhile.”
The shoe was a Puma brand, size 7 and 1/2, in green and black.
