River Body Roundup

A badly decomposed body was found in the Kern River last Friday. The body was lodged under a rock about a mile into the canyon and it took hours for rescuers to remove it. There was a picture in the paper with the article yesterday and I just looked at again and realized you can see part of the body in the picture. It’s all black and nasty. I can’t believe they put that picture in the paper. Yuck. They announced today that they have determined the body be that of 81-year-old Lamont resident Alfonzo Rea. What the hell is an 81 year old doing in the Killer Kern?

Who knows how many other bodies there are stuck under rocks in that river. I am soo not going to swim there anymore.
