VANCOUVER - Two more of the eight feet that have washed ashore in British Columbia since 2007 have been identified.

The BC Coroners Service says the feet belong to a woman who committed suicide by jumping from the Pattullo Bridge in New Westminster in 2004.

Her feet washed ashore along the Fraser River in Richmond four years later and autopsies showed the limbs had not be cut off, but separated from the legs naturally.

The coroner's office says DNA was used to identify the woman and her family has been notified, but doesn't want her name released.

Six of the eight feet that have washed ashore in B.C. since 2007 have now been identified as belonging to four people.

The service says it's still working to identify the other two, adding there's no evidence any of the deaths were suspicious.
