Man's body recovered from Charles River near the Longfellow

The body of a 59-year-old Boston man was recovered from the Charles River near the Longfellow Bridge this morning, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

The operator of a Duck Boat spotted the body in the water under the bridge around 10:50 a.m., the DA's office reports.

The man had been previously reported as missing, the DA's office says, adding that because his death does not appear to be the result of foul play, he will not be identified further.

The tours are great but this is the part of the tour where the captain often lets a kid drive the boat. I hope the families are OK and the poor soul whose body was discovered rests in peace.

There is no Smiley Face Killer in Boston

I've updated the post to reflect that the man was 59, and we all know the non-existent killer only preys on young, white, male college students, certainly not the other people who don't fit that description whose bodies are retrieved from the local rivers and harbor.

And only when it's dark out, and the freezing cold of winter, and he only looks for victims who get kicked out of bars for being drunk.

But we all know its you, Adam. YOU

Murder He Wrote

I saw a documentary on this! This deranged old woman was going around killing folks and constantly framing others! The program was in early in the evening, too early for most folks to see, but bone-chilling in the diverse victims and how she set up the "killers". And just like our Adam she was always deflecting suspicion from herself, though she was always somehow involved...
