Authorities have solved the mystery behind a disturbing discovery on the Central Coast, and say no foul play was involved.  A bicyclist found a human foot on Santa Rita Road outside of Templeton Sunday morning.

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s detectives now say the foot belong to the victim of a July 17th traffic accident.  The man survived the crash on Highway 101, but lost his legs when his car crashed into a guardrail.

One foot was recovered at the scene.  It’s unclear how his other foot ended up nearly three miles away.
