body found March 14th 800 block of Monterrey Way


does anybody know anything about the body found just east of the 800 block of monterrey way on wednesday evening? eye witnesses saw paramedics slowly carrying a stretcher with a body (sheet over the corpse) out of the drainage ditch, which connects with Dad perry park. as usual, nothing in the paper. Also, rumors afloat about an additional body found near Michigan street. Do we have serial killer loose?

Yes, prettiness often causes paranoia.

Why wasn't this reported? I smell a cover-up!

Above cover-up statement was sarcasm, by the way.

Quick check of Police log nothing found from 1:39pm on 3/14 till 1:00am on 3/15. I may have missed something but didn't see any calls like that.

Puddleglum, I'm still very upset with you for not following through on your run for governor. This is all your fault, every bit of it.

puddleglum (anonymous) says… "where's smitty when you need her?"

Probably getting ready to cut and paste something irrelevant.

Don't know about this case, but I think the police in conjunction with the JW do not report on some cases (not just suicides) where a body is found. My experience, in 2005 I happened on a body (very hot, humid day) in the alley of the 700 block of Mass. St., checked to make sure of condition, no pulse, no respiration, called 911 on cell phone. Police and ambulance quickly arrived, worked on the individual to no avail. The incident was never reported in the JW, homeless individual I believe! I never did hear anything more, should have called police for further information, but did not want to seem morbidly curious.

Did the 'eye witness' notice the 'stretcher with a body (sheet over the corpse)' loaded into an ambulance? Maybe it was loaded onto a black helicopter.

Maybe some men wearing black suits and dark sunglasses with a really neat pen with a red blinky light were there.

no need for silly comments. the body was loaded into an ambulance, no pretty lights flashing when it left.

For what it's worth, I live near 13th & Monterey and Wednesday evening we heard sirens coming down Monterey then they suddenly stopped. My husband looked out when he heard them and it was a police car that turned down Tiffany Dr. (borders Dad Perry Park) and turned their siren/lights off. Possibly related? Makes me curious now.

really? he was lifeless on a stretcher with his leg hanging off the end?

biggunz, you must be referring to something else, this wasn't a 'chase'

I happen to live at this complex - the one with the creek behind it. Given that the ambulance was in front of my house - dude they caught in the creek that was on the stretcher? Swearing up a storm. Somehow, i don't think he was dead.

Haven't you ever noticed that when you see something happen involving the police, at least half the time there is not a word in the paper or on television?

We checked with police last week, and they said they were not aware of a body found in that area. There was a medical call in that area Wednesday night, but police didn't make a report about it.
