Take a Hike, Find a Body.Posted: March 15, 2009
Laurie had a thought. She turned to me and said:” If I was going to hide a body, it would be in Bloomingburg Park.” Awesome. My immediate thought was she is actually thinking about where to ditch my body when she eventually kills me. Turns out, she heard on the news that a reward of 14K has been offered up to whoever finds the body of the missing young lady. Laurie wanted to go for a hike in Bloomingburg park to look for the missing girl. Laurie was serious. She sermised that the suspect dropped the body off in Bloomingburg park. Actually, her theory was not such a far-fetched one. A rug that matches the suspect’s apartment rug was found not to far from the park plus, his vechicle was seen in the village of Bloomingburg. Me, it was a good enough reason to go traipsing through the woods. That’s right I said traipsing. Laurie was morbidly serious about finding the body and collecting the reward. In fact, unbeknownst to me, she even loaded the car with a shovel and a pair of my working gloves. Here I thought we were going for a nice leisurely hike.
Sorry to report, we did not find anything. Would have been nice to give the family some closure and my account more money.[Sentence added at the behest and good natured ribbing in the comments section of two faithful readers, Jay Gaulard and Eugene L. Yours truly forgot to report on the status of the hike. ]
When we made it back to the park, Maddie ran to the playground.
