Oh man, I don’t ever want to be the finder of a dead body, that would suck.

On a related note, I would give away a dog that needed walking at 4:20 am.

Someone I went to high school with but didn’t know very well has been missing since he went to a concert at Stage AE last Tuesday. I’m nervous this might be him. I have no information that it would be, but it makes you wonder if it is.

Hrm….

Some peeps we were talking about this and it might be instead a Pitt or CMU student. Jumping off the PH bridge ain’t that hard, plus they are taking finals right now…. I’ve heard of cases like this in the past.

Totally unrelated, but I was messing around w/ the police scanner app on my phone and was listening to them trying to find two men in a home invasion armed robbery in Oakland that stole a bunch of electronics. They tracked them into Panther Hollow and surrounded the area, but I’m assuming they were never found, because it never made it to any news sites.

I was running in Schenley/Panther Hollow this morning around 5 am, and came across this investigation. I stopped and asked if I could pass and the police let me run through. Then I saw the “Medical Examiner” van driving down the trail and figured something was up. Once I got out of the park I finished my run somewhere else.
