TRUTH !!
Toe prints have the same unique identification factors as fingerprints,
including the well known whorls and ridges we've all read about. These are
specific to each individual, so toe prints have been used to solve crimes in
the same fashion as fingerprints. The first occurrence of this kind took
place in 1952 in Scotland when a barefooted thief broke into a bakery there,
and then managed to open the safe where the takings were kept. Unfortunately
for this person - and thanks to a somewhat untidy bakery - the thief left
his toe prints in the residual flour left scattered about the business, and
was identified from them.
