    I don't mean to step on anyone's toes, but I think there's been too much outrageous speculation this early on in the investigation.

    We all love a good mystery -- a tall tale. Afterall, the Pacific NW is home to mythical lore, from D.B. Cooper to Bigfoot to Paul Bunion. Given our overactive imaginations it's no wonder that there's all this speculation of a crime. Organized crime...oooooh, the arch nemesis to law enforcement (quick, someone call Chuck Norris- this is a job for Walker, Texas Ranger). Sensationalism- it's what we live for, and the media takes great strides to give it to us. Network news programs are constantly trying to get a leg up on the competition, and certainly another grisly crime would be a shoe-in for a good news story. But what if it turns out to just be the result of a simple, unspectacular maritime accident whereby the victim simply lost their footing and fell out of their Achilles raft?

    Seems like the authorities up there are a little de-feeted.

    I don't think it is a stretch at all to consider this to be related to organized crime.

    It is well known in B.C. that there is some SERIOUS organized crime....just look at the guy who admits to making 125 million a year growing pot up there illegaly. He is an icon and a hero to some. The government loves him because he pays his taxes.

    Anyway, I think people are getting whacked! Too much money and international shadiness going on there especially down on the docks. Any drug mover in Asia knows that the Vancouver port is a lot easier to work through than anywhere in the hyper-paranoid US.

    Growing up in Bellingham and knowing cops personally, I can tell you that the area has some crazy size loads of heavy narcotics (Heroin) from Asia passing through Vancouver, than south, headed for California. You would think the border crossing would be tougher, that is what they want you to think, and than there are payed off border officers.

    Now if someone said this was the work of some ancient and angered Native spirit than I would call that sensationalism but I just may believe it too ;)

    If you can't read it right; maybe you should move a couple feet closer to the screen? Maybe your monitor cable is severed?

    Well I guess I stumped you.

    My Adidas
    walked through concert doors
    and roamed all over coliseum floors
    I stepped on stage, at Live Aid
    All the people gave and the poor got paid
    And out of speakers I did speak
    I wore my sneakers but I'm not a sneak
    My Adidas cuts the sand of a foreign land
    with mic in hand I cold took command
    my Adidas and me, close as can be
    we make a mean team, my Adidas and me
    we get around together, rhyme forever
    and we won't be mad when worn in bad weather
    My Adidas..
    My Adidas..
    My Adidas

    standin on 2 Fifth St.
    funky fresh and yes cold on my feet
    with no shoe string in em, I did not win em
    I bought em off the Ave with the black Lee denim
    I like to sport em that's why I bought em
    a sucker tried to steal em so I caught em and I fought em
    and I walk down the street and I bop to the beat
    with Lee on my legs and adidas on my feet
    and now I just standin here shooting the gif
    me and D and my Adidas standing on 2 Fifth
    My Adidas..
    My Adidas..

    me and my Adidas do the illest things
    we like to stomp out pimps with diamond rings
    we slay all suckers who perpetrate
    and lay down law from state to state
    we travel on gravel, dirt road or street
    I wear my Adidas when I rock the beat
    on stage front page every show I go
    it's Adidas on my feet high top or low
    My Adidas..
    My Adidas..

    Now the Adidas I possess for one man is rare
    myself homeboy got 50 pair
    got blue and black cause I like to chill
    and yellow and green when it's time to get ill
    got a pair that I wear when I'm playin ball
    with the heal inside make me 10 feet tall
    my Adidas only bring good news
    and they are not used as selling shoes
    they're black and white, white with black stripe
    the ones I like to wear when I rock the mic
    on the strength of our famous university
    we took the beat from the street and put it on TV
    my Adidas are seen on the movie screen
    Hollywood knows we're good if you know what I mean
    we started in the alley, now we chill in Cali
    and I won't trade my Adidas for no beat up Bally's
    My Adidas..

    Ya, just like the one down on S Andros. That was pretty nasty. I think it was a right foot also but inside a regular work boot, not a Wadin' Boot.

    Hmmm. "copcat CEREAL killer?" I thought I was the only one who had to go out and shoot his breakfast first thing in the morning. Now someone's trying to hijack my gig. No way...I'm going to find out who it is and cut 'em off.

    So, I never did post my theory:
    "Take a Mafioso Fishing Day, 2008"
    This is the result of emptying a bait box after trolling for Six-gill Shark in the Straits of Georgia. That's why there was only one left, and of course we all know that Six-gill prefer the left foot. This explains why only right feet had been found previously, which troll with a counter-clockwise rotation, vs the left with their much more enticing clockwise rotation.
