Apparent human foot delivered to Conservative Party HQ

Ottawa police say they are investigating after what appears to be a human foot was found in a package sent to the Conservative Party of Canada's headquarters in downtown Ottawa.

Hazardous materials handlers were called to the 12th floor of 130 Albert St. after the package was found and police blocked off much of the road on Tuesday.

Ottawa police Staff Sgt. Bruce Pirt said major crimes investigators have taken over the HAZMAT call because if it is a human foot, "There's a body without one."

Police said it appeared to a be a human foot in an X-ray but official confirmation will have to wait until the coroner has investigated.

Package sent through Canada Post: police

Pirt said the suspicious package was delivered through Canada Post and police will be tracking its origin.

Conservative Party spokesman Fred DeLorey said Ottawa police are investigating and all questions should be referred to them.
