    RIP, Poor kid.

    That area is a handful.

    I was thinking after my last weigh-in on this problem about the time I got glassy eyed blind drunk back in the spring of 2008.

    And I somehow mindlessly headed the wrong way down Hampshire St at the Prospect intersection and I was down by Kendall before I figured it out.

    If I was at the waterfront, you'd all be off the hook for my pestiferous pecking.

    and after getting kicked out of a bar,without his jacket, on an extremely cold night,for what? And why didn't he call friends still inside the bar, and why didn't they notice him gone and call him?

    Very sad all around. RIP

    My condolences to his family.

    Was that part of the harbor frozen over this winter? I'm curious why it took so long to find the body.

    Sometimes bodies get stuck in the pilings and when a really high tide comes, they will float out.

    Such a sad story, I hope this gentleman's family will have some closure.
