From an Everett Police Department news release.
Detectives with the Everett Police Department Major Crimes Unit are investigating the discovery of a human foot that was found on Jetty Island in Everett on Tuesday afternoon January 1, 2019.
Just after 2:00 pm on New Years Day, beach goers on the south end of Jetty Island called 911 to report the discovery of a boot with a foot inside.
Marine Operations officers and a Major Crimes detective responded to the island and confirmed the finding of what appears to be a human foot inside a boot. Based on its condition, the boot appears to have been in the water for some time.
Detectives are investigating but cannot establish a definitive timeline or reason for the discovery.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office took custody of the boot to determine if a human foot was inside and will attempt to establish identity.
Additional information on this incident is not expected unless the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office is able to develop information during its investigation.
