Gyrfalcon: TheShavingofOccam123: Gyrfalcon: mjjt: Bit surprised that 3 sets of parents of teenagers didn't try harder to figure out where their kids had gone?You'd think that if they'd gone off the road there would have been some marks, or if they went down the boat ramp that it would be an obvious place to start looking.Not necessarily, at least not that you might notice. Search methods weren't quite as sophisticated in the 70's and especially the 60's as they are today.Also--and being from a similar rural area in about the same time frame--the first thing cops used to think of when a carload of kids in their teens went missing was not "They are probably dead in a lake, we better look there." It was "They probably ran away from home, we better check the nearest big city." Especially the ones in the 70's, they probably figured they ran off to be hippies or something.So while nowadays the lake is an obvious place to look, in the 70's, not so much. People didn't think of kids being dead as much back then.When the Kingsbury Run Torso Killer was killing people in Cleveland, the authorities found a body on a train between Cleveland and New Castle. So they started dragging the lakes around the tracks. Found plenty of bodies not of which were related to the Torso killings. It must have been a Mafia body dump.Which is interesting, but has exactly nothing to do with anything under discussion.
Anthracite: How deep is that lake? I can't see where going into the water at the edge of a boat ramp would render them invisible.
TheGogmagog: Greek: TheMega: WTH did the cops do to that poor Camaro?!? Mistake it for a bomb and decide to detonate the ass-end of it?!?Be careful with that shiat! SOME people might have liked to have picked it over for parts!Oh yeah, RIP dead people.#1. There's nothing useable on a car that has sat at the bottom of a lake for over 40 years.#2. The Camaro looks like something big and fast rear- ended it. In my line of work, I see lots of cars that were hit, some of them HARD. (so you don't know what you're talking about) My guess: there's a highway next to the lake. They were on that highway, perhaps slowing down to turn somewhere, and a semi rear- ended them, sending them into the lake. The semi driver decided to just leave. Semis can do that much damage to a car, and have little more than a bent bumper.or how about a second car plowed into the lake behind them 10 years later?/ok, probably not that much momentum after hitting the water.
I see what you did their.
The One True TheDavid: There could have been some kind of monster, pagan god or Native American demon in that lake, and the people nearby were required to sacrifice a few young people every now and then so the Bad Thing won't come out of the water and do worse things to them. And maybe it was even better when the victims volunteered, knowingly or not, which could explain the layout of the boat ramp there. And maybe the nearby people were hypnotized or mindfarked somehow so they forgot all about the Evil Critter and the "lost" victims, except when the time for the Sacrifice came they'd snap into a state of mind where they do what's necessary like programmed robots: say the kids have driven drunk around there many times and never went off the ramp or even got their tires wet, but one particular night while they're all staring straight ahead they drive right off the ramp into the lake and drown. And the locals, being mind-controlled too, forget those young people had ever existed, and their photos would vanish and their bedrooms magically become sewing rooms, "man caves" or home offices for Mom's bookkeeping sideline or whatever, and it would seem like it was always like that. If they shared a room with a sibling, say in a bunkbed, presto chango the surviving kid was "always" an only child. Of course it's significant that only bones were found.And if I ever come across a story like this published somewhere you'd better settle out of court.
