    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Body found at Core Creek?

    I heard that yesterday (4/8/07) a body was found hanged in the woods of Core Creek between the soccer fields and the lake. I was unloading my bikes when the guy next to us asked if we had heard about it. He said two people kayaking saw the body from the lake. Scary, Cause I was kayaking there over the weekend. I also heard this from my friend who's boss said the same thing. I wasn't able to find any information online about it and I don't get the Bucks county times. Does anyone else know anything about this???

    I hadn't heard anything about it until I went looking just now.

    I live across the street from this. They had helicopter up for it too. Imagine pushing branches out of your way as you are riding and have the body swing back at you! Something like that could knock you off your bike-- might even get scratched up falling into the briars.

    Probably the rope that was around his neck is my guess.

    I gathered as much as that. I was wondering if it was suicide or something criminal...

    Nothing official, but I believe suicide due to some chick.

    Crimeny!

    Does ANSI certification include protection against hitting a swinging dead body at 25 mph? Truly concerning!

    (I know for a fact ANSI certification does not indlude protection against self-inflicted hanging due to teen angst!)

    rigor mortis

    a body stiff will break the helmet, unless it is a fresh swing before the mortis sets!

    Uses for the body?

    According to IMBA, bodies with rigor mortis make excellent, natural, biodegradable bridges and can also be used for setting up stunts, like teeter totters.

    We could use it to span some of the nasty muddy areas.

    Just think...

    Just think of the influence we might have had with this guy if we encountered him as he configured the noose. We could have talked to him about biking and how he never needed the girl in the first place! His likely alternative would have been the mt. bike & trail maintenance! What a deal!

    My constant rejection from women lead to the purchase of my road bike and my new components...Money may not buy you happiness, but it sure as hell does buy you the means to it

    More like 6 bikes in my case.....getting rejected was never so much fun.

    Speaking of suicide I used to ride over the Golden Gate Bridge as part of my commute to work. After seeing the movie "The Bridge" (I think that's what it was called) about jumpers off the GGG (avg. 1 every 2 weeks) I realized I've seen at least one person who was less than a couple minutes away from dieing. I specifically remember passing one person who looked to be acting a bit odd for a mid morning walk on the bridge. Had I know better I would have paid attention or stopped but hey if you're going to jump then you're going to jump.
    We also had a kid commit suicide in the middle of the night by strangling himself with wire and a CMU off the back of one of our wooden jump ramps. The ramp was promptly burned down after that.
    K, time to go ride..........

    To all you wonderful people making jokes, that was my father. If anyone has more information on what happened please let me know because I do not know anything myself.

    Not specific. But my neighbor's wife took her life there recently as well.

    Iím confused, that post was from 2007: Were you the Mike he was asking and did you just see the post now? No sarcasm intended, if itís the case itís just crazy to see a question answered in conversation literally spanning 12 years.

    You'd be a pretty shitty neighbor then, based on the jokes you made years ago in this thread. I feel bad for the husband having to live next to you mocking him at each opportunity you get.

    What are you talking about; and why are you attacking me? You may not know that I lost my son several years ago, so I understand the pain.

    If you look at my post from May 2007, it's not evidence of insensitivity. Over 36 years in law enforcement I have handled many suicides and have experienced and assimilated much of their pain. But at the same time we do develop dark humor to cope with tragedy-- even that which is not singularly ours.

    So, your guess that my neighbor thinks I am a lousy neighbor is false.
    Nice if you could take the time to actually know me before an attack.

    Keep riding my friend....

    No need to apologize as it wasn't a mistake as you were answering a question directed to you! I was more interested in confirming that I was in fact witnessing a rather unique internet-forum-enabled phenomena: a question directed to a specific individual being answered over a decade later-- a specific "conversation" with a twelve year pause. I find that kind of fascinating for some reason.

    I haven't been here much for some years because of many things happening in my life. That's how I missed it. And I agree, it is fascinating!
