Weighted body pulled from Charles River next to BU Bridge
On October 8, shortly before 7:30 am, a Boston University rowing coach discovered a body in the Charles River near the Boston University sailing pavilion. This facility is east of the BU Bridge, exactly across the Charles River from the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.
The body was found on the Boston side of the Charles River across the BU Bridge and the Charles River from Cambridge, MA, USA.
Thank you to Ellen Schloss for making us aware of the report, at http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view.bg?format=comments&articleid=1061166422&cnum=2.
The link is to Boston Herald story concerning a weighted body found near the BU sailing pavilion. The report is internally inconsistent. It looks like it was updated without removing the earlier version.
It was the badly decomposed body of a middle aged man weighted down by a cinderblock and chains.
The Herald initially hypothesized the body was that of a missing architecture student, but that apparently turned out not to be the case.
The Boston side of the Charles River is a continuing problem of rapes and muggings because of the small vehicle highway which is built there in quite isolated locations. The Machine wants to expand the danger zone to the Cambridge side of the Charles River by creating the same sort of dangerous situation in Cambridge on top of environmental sensitive areas and animal habitat, another isolated small vehicle highway.
The Cambridge Machine pushed small vehicle highway following the Grand Junction railroad which would have very severe harm to the habitat of the Charles River White Geese includes a highly publicized option to link to this mugging zone as well. The plans, however, do not show the physical connection.
The Herald report included two contradictory identifications of the victim. Watching New England Cable News just now, October 10, I selected the wrong identification.
It was the architecture student. His family has conducted a very visible hunt for him over the past week.
