Six bodies found in two cars pulled from Lake Foss, Oklahoma
Six bodies were discovered in two cars found on the bottom of Lake Foss in
Oklahoma on Tuesday. The cars, both at least 40 years old, were discovered
when the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement division were
conducting training sessions involving new sonar technology.
Police pulled up a blue 1969 Camaro white top which matched
the description of the car owned by Jimmy Williams, a 16-year-old last seen
on November 20, 1970. Reports said he was heading to a football game with
two friends, Thomas Rios and Leah Johnson, both 18, but their plans may
have changed and they went for a hunting trip instead. No trace of the car,
or any of their bodies, was found after that autumn evening. The three
bodies in the Camaro
are suspected to belong to the missing teenagers.
The second car recovered was a 1957 Chevy and it also contained the remains
of three people. Police first suspected that the car belonged to a couple
last seen in Canute, a town about 10 miles south of the lake, some time in
the 1960s. It was later believed, however, that the Chevy was owned by Alvi
Porter, a 69-year-old man that went missing in 1969. His granddaughter,
Debbie McManamman, said in a television interview that she believed the car
to be her grandfather's green Chevy. It is not known who was in the car
The highway patrol discovered the vehicles on September 10, then went back
on a diving mission to investigate. The cars, which were found next to each
other, were pulled out on Tuesday.
Internet users from the area have left comments on news sites speculating
that the cars may have ended up in that part of the lake due to a
particularly dangerous stretch of road near it.

Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and
trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject
is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the
engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about
$20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I
traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be
saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we
find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we
can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to
steady-cam feature malfunction.
Thanks for checking it out!
