Authorities in New Zealand are trying to get to the bottom of a rather macabre mystery after a disembodied foot was discovered on a beach. According to a local media report, the puzzling appendage was found on Saturday morning when a person walking along the shore in the coastal community of Petone stumbled upon a shoe sitting in the sand. To what one imagines was their profound surprise, upon closer inspection, the beachgoer realized that it contained a human foot. Police quickly swarmed the beach and set about searching both the land and the water for any additional body parts or possible clues as to the origin of the appendage.
