Bodies are washing up on the shore of Lake Michigan and along Chicago’s rivers

PennLive:
Bodies have been washing up on the shores of Lake Michigan and rivers around Chicago.

In fact, according to The Chicago Tribune, the bodies of three women and one man washed up in just a single week earlier this month.

And, while the first thought might be “serial killer,” it appears that is not the case here, at all. Because, the Tribune reports, while the cause of death for all those folks is unknown, there are also no suggestions of “criminal activity.” And, the newspaper reported, it does not appear that any of the deaths are connected. more

    “At least the families will have some closure.”

    …but not an open casket. The bloat and maceration on a body that’s been soaking for a good long while is indescribable, not to mention the places where various things have nibbled on it and in some cases set up housekeeping.

    Somethings can never be unseen.
    Heavy truck duals across a torso.
    But the flip side, delivering a baby on the gurney on the way to the squad.

    True that. But I must confess that I never had the pleasure of seeing new life into the world. We were fairly close to hospitals where I ran and frankly I was scared green about bithing and birth injuries and such, so I had a patented technique for dealing with impending arrivals on nights I was the box guy and contractions were just getting rolling.

    I would assess the mother, let her claw my wrists to relieve her pain if that’s what she wanted to do, then gently disentangle myself long enough to lean forward into the cab section of the unit and tell the driver, DRIVE FASTER!

    …worked every time.

    …came close once with a multigravida who was WELL past her due date and for God knows what reason put on tight (like anything WOULDN’T be when you’re swole up like a water balloon) cutoff denim shorts and went SWIMMING IN A WAVE POOL, but we got Cinderella to the ball before crowning there too, so my “not birthin’ no babies” record remained unblemished.

    It’s kind of a regret of mine, now, that I didn’t get to participate professionally in the ONE medical experience that ends with two healthy and happy patients, but I did get to see my OWN into this world, so I guess I can be content with that.

    …although we’ve got pregnant women at work and a pregnant neighbor behind our house where it takes 20 minutes minimum for the ambulance to even show up, so never say never…

  5. So, in Chicago, it’s “Reel in yer dead!” now. Hopefully, they have both feet attached. (Recall the multiple Canadian cases of single feet found on the beach wearing a shoe years ago – very macabre.)

  6. I learned to disconnect from the scene of death when I worked in television news as a photographer. I was exposed to quite a few. I guess it comes with the job. The expression on the face of drowning victim with purple colored skin is something you don’t forget.

  7. Four bodies wash up but no crime? Hmmmmm.

    Suicide is or used to be a crime. That used to amuse me because I never assumed anyone who was successful at it would not be charged for the crime.

    File it under “The Law Is An ASS”.

    Damned double negatives, the tragedy of the English Language.
