Change Guy to Nick and this headline reads suspiciously like a Hemingway novel.

This sounds like the plot of a Burn Notice episode

-1, subby, should have gotten that one out of the way in the headline.

And Hollywood gets handed the plot of "Memento 2" on a silver platter.

I have a feeling this story is going to a get a lot more drug-smuggley/organized crime-y.

That is a painfully badly written article.

Only in Va Beach. Or Florida.

No shiat. For one, if the boat was in Camden, it was up on a trailer. If it was in Camden County, it could have been on the canal, on the Pasquotank River, or one of a dozen little "creeks" (and this in a area where a creek can be as much as a half mile wide) like Sawyer Creek, known for its bootlegging and weed smuggling.

Northeastern NC, the land that time forgot in so many ways . . .

Who IS this guy?

This whole thing was a crazy mess to begin with. It was suspected for a while that the boat was set ablaze for insurance purposes, and a lot of people complained about it sitting in the water for so long after the hurricane because the guy couldn't afford to have it removed.

In some ways, I guess it doesn't surprise me that he died under mysterious circumstances. It goes along with all the other strange circumstances of this story.

About as much "mystery" here as "man dead in meth lab in back seat of ghost drifting Astro Van incident".

Not too familiar with Boaties are you?
`
Rule 1: Make damn sure the dead body IS the missing guy.
Rule 2: Bury the body, auction off any valuables and throw a party.
Rule 3: Who ever doesn't show up for free food/liquor is probably guilty, but what the hell, more liquor for the rest of us!

Is this one of those if a tree falls in the woods sound brain teasers?

By my folks a guy was going through a messy divorce, his wife being sane and rational sunk his boat in the canal. The locals were pissed because it caused an obstruction and he wouldnt move it ebcause he thought since it was sunk it wasent his problem anymore. Took about a year for that thing to get pulled out.

This guy was obviously troubled, but I have to give him props for not playing his "troubled Veteran" card to gain undeserved sympathy.

So who was boat?

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!
