Body parts are making their way through Canada’s postal system this week and they are arriving in separate packages. On Tuesday, May 29, a severed foot was delivered by mail to the Conservative party headquarters in a blood-stained box. Hours later, a bloody hand was found in a package at the Ottawa Postal Terminal.

The foot was addressed to the Conservative Party, not a specific person. However, the box with the chopped off human hand was destined for a different address. Police are not commenting on where it was addressed to at this time.
Conservative MP Brad Trost tells the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, “It’s just awful … I don’t think any of us are thinking this necessarily has anything to do with politics.”
Perhaps too large to mail, a rotting human torso was found in a suitcase on the same day. CTV reports that a maggot-covered torso was discovered by a janitor in a building on Snowdon Street in Montreal.
The gruesome discovery made on the very day the severed foot and hand were found in the mail may just be coincidence, but it was certainly a disturbing day in Canada.
The janitor, Mike Nadeau, discovered there was a lock on the suitcase, so he opened it with cutters. He tells the Ottawa Citizen, “I noticed flies and when I looked closer I saw maggots … there was no head and (the torso) was all grey.”
The Canadian Press confirms that the torso was that of a male, but there is no word on whether the foot and hand are from the same body.
Police in Ottawa cannot confirm the cases are connected, but are working closely with Montreal police.
