It's the stuff of bad murder mysteries, this far-fetched idea that more than forty college-aged men in different states didn't accidentally drown, as was recorded on their death certificates... that they were all murdered.
But it looks like it's true. And it's horrifying to me.
In central Minnesota, more than a few young, college-aged men have gone missing over the years. Some of them were found in the Mississippi. Some haven't been found at all. Locals on news websites have been speculating for years that these aren't a coincidence, that there's something going on down the I-94 corridor, something intentional and horrible. People have been dismissing it, maybe out of fear or healthy skepticism.
For years, these two retired New York detectives have been following these cases, tracing the details to which the public hasn't been privy, finding connections between dozens of drownings that they've now concluded are murders. All of them, linked together.
I'm passing this around to everyone I can find, on every site I frequent. It's too important for anyone to miss. Click the link above, and watch the video in the sidebar. I had to watch it twice, and read the article twice, and all the links, and every other news story I could find.
There's still a big part of me that doesn't believe it. It's unbelievable.
The idea that it could be true haunts me. Is it possible?
