A story broke over the weekend about human remains being discovered by hikers in the woods behind the Marion Fricano Town Park in North Collins, New York.
Of course, North Collins is my small hometown. The remains were discovered about a mile from my childhood home.
We watch a lot of true crime around Camp Clifford. That's Kathy's go-to entertainment channel. ID TV.
There's a real life drama unfolding.
I heard, through the small town grapevine that the body had been there for years and years. More than 10...
...maybe up to 30!
"It can't be someone from North Collins," my buddies mentioned. "There's no one we know who's missing."
Yet I can't imagine finding human body parts.
That in and of itself has to be a tad disconcerting.
Was it murder?
A hiker who had a major problem??
A dumped victim???
I'm sure we'll hear a lot more.
"Crazy town," I said. "We had two cop shootings there. A murder just a few years back of a mentally challenged girl, a rape at the same park."
Hey, maybe it'll wind up on ID TV.
That's not a stretch.'
One of my unstated goals in life is to not be identified as "remains."
As my Dad once said after we listened to the details of a horrific murder years back:
"May he rest in pieces."
