A Good Place to Hide a Body
Here's something a bit unsettling. About a year ago I was driving home from work and noticed a TV news crew, half a dozen police cars and search dogs scouring this marshy area. (This marshy area is next to a heavily travelled road (Portage Rd.) and it's one I use frequently). At the time I drove by I didn't realize a dead body had been found hidden and in a garbage bag. In subsequent days news spread that the body appeared to have been there awhile. Then it struck me. I had been driving by that dead body for quite some time. Creepy. Even now, a year later, it's difficult driving by that marsh realizing that that was the scene of someone's violent act.
