Ok, today's ride was so whacked, it deserved it's own thread...

Well, the ride rocked despite suffering for the last 6 miles. This was at one of the places I frequent.

Got to the place, and there were a whole bunch of state police all over the place including a search and rescue unit and several news networks have set up camp there. Apparently the resevoir there claimed 6 more lives. Boat tipped over and the 6 were caught under the boat and drowned, none of the 6 bodies were found. One body was found but it was one of the ones that disappeared 3 years ago likely, it's almost odd, it will take some victims, but it will let a previous victim go.

that really sucks, police are nice, but they can just be a pain in the ass sometimes...
like the person who ran away from the rangers, i was going my normal pace on a trail, and a ranger was walking along and yelled at me for going "too fast" when there arent any posted speed limits...
sorry about your ride

He might of meant remains instead of body. Three years in water means bones and jewelry only!

Nope, could not find, one the graduate student murder that happened in NYC is taking up alot of the attention here. I'll peruse the papers tomorrow.

The only update I have is that they were looking for 6 people who have drowned in the past, they found one, but did not find the other 5.
