If you're still eating breakfast right now, do yourself a favor and stop. A running shoe with a severed human foot inside washed up on Ocean Beach Sunday morning, and police are now trying to figure out who the foot -- and the shoe -- belong to.

CBS News says the National Park Service beach patrol stumbled upon the foot which was inside a green-and-black Puma sneaker, size 11.5.

Police found no sign of the rest of the body, and they have no idea whose foot it is. What's more, they don't know yet what happened to the person, but say whatever it was, it wasn't a recent event.

Investigators from the Medical Examiner's Office told the news station that the foot and some "associated tissue" in the shoe had probably been "rolling around the seabed for a while."

There was no more information about the foot at this time.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
