an old retaining wall
Under Anita’s Owl Creek Bridge gave way
Fir Trees and Hemlocks and Cedars

An Old Cemetery called Mourning Ridge

Mr Butcherbroom and his wife were the first to come down

Mrs Butherbroom looked up at the Bridge and cursed
Mr Butherbroom swore

I woke up to this news story.

Investigators are trying to identify the skeletal remains of a diver, recovered Monday in Tacoma’s Commencement Bay. An off duty firefighter discovered it while diving in some pretty deep waters.
The water is deep enough to make for a challenging search. From the shore, there’s a slow decline, then at about 55 feet, there’s a sharp drop-off.
At this point, most divers only go about 130 feet deep. But there are more extreme divers who use special equipment and go deeper. The body was found at 200 feet.
“It could have been here for years, up to 9 months,” said Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. “We have identified a couple of different divers that have gone missing from down here over the years that have gone missing over the years that we have not recovered.”
Crews had to use a sonar camera to locate the body, and a remote control robot to dive the distance, and pull the body up to the surface.
At this point, it’s up to the medical examiner to answer the mystery of the diver’s identity, and how long the body has been underwater.
