Body Found.




Below is a Press statement issued by the States of Jersey police this morning.



States Of Jersey Police PRESS RELEASE Thursday, 04 August 2016


"At 10:40 today police received a call from a worker at Handois Reservoir, St Lawrence who reported finding the remains of a body partly submerged in the water.

Given the proximity to the last known location of missing Islander Adrian Lynch, Adrian’s family have been updated as to the find but any formal identification is likely to take some time.

Police officers and Crime Scene Investigation are currently at the reservoir and we would request that persons do not attend at that location in order to enable the police to carry out their investigations.

We understand the public interest that this incident will create, but we would ask that islanders respect this request and the family’s privacy at this time.

Further information will be provided as it becomes available."(END)

Our thoughts are with the Lynch family and friends.

  1. Sad news. Can you tell those of us unfamiliar with the area where exactly this piece of water is; also was it allegedly searched by police divers prior to this body appearing today? Thank you.

    1. From SOJP Press Release.

      "There are a number of water sites in the general area ranging from garden ponds to the Handois and Dannemarche reservoirs. A number of these aspects could be and were covered by trained Fire and Rescue officers and divers from TTS. Other more challenging aspects were reviewed and where applicable covered by sonar specialists from Humberside Police."

  2. Hopefully this very sad news will now prove to be the consequence of a very unfortunate accident. However, one really does have to ask the following question.

    If this water had been searched by professionals (Handois isn't large)is it remotely possible that a body could have been deposited in the water AFTER a search had taken place? Hopefully the police and forensics will be asking this same question.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What if the body wasn't deposited AFTER the police had searched? The police will then have to be answering the questions not asking them. How could they not have found the body in such a small area of water? These are questions which will need answering at a later date because for now our thoughts and prayers should be with Adrian's family.

  3. If one loosk at this (below) paragraph from their (SOJP) previous Press Release (above link), it basically says that the SOJP DIDN'T search Handois themselves, it was left to Fire and Rescue, Humberside cops, and TTS.

    "There are a number of water sites in the general area ranging from garden ponds to the Handois and Dannemarche reservoirs. A number of these aspects could be and were covered by trained Fire and Rescue officers and divers from TTS. Other more challenging aspects were reviewed and where applicable covered by sonar specialists from Humberside Police."

    So the obvious question is AGAIN "if (as SOJP have been saying all through this) the areas have been "thoroughly" and "extensively" searched how did they miss the body?" They can't have it both ways, if it (Handois) was "extensively" and "thoroughly" searched in the first place they would have found him. This (discovery today) suggests there was NOT a thorough and extensive search.

    Of course there is always, the very possible scenario, that the body was dumped there post-search. Questions will need to be asked/answred along those lines.

  4. How accessible is this site considering the person was allegadly drunk, confused or both?

  5. Are there any security cameras up at the site? Have these been checked? If staff are there every day how come the body only just discovered? Why did the police not use their own divers to search the water? Just a few questions that need answering.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Obviously the body will be checked to see if any injuries were there that could not be explained by drowning? Injuries such as might be caused by being hit by a car?

    ReplyDelete
  7. If the police say visibility was very bad in the water then why did they not go back with better lighting equipment? After all they were not restricted by any budget limit according to Mr Gull.

    Hardly a professional search by the look of it? If this was Power and Harper they would be slaughtered.

  8. So, so sad for Adrian's family (if indeed it is Adrian), and I can only imagine what they must be going through at this moment in time. Indeed, they have had to wait a long time for answers, and it would appear from the above SoJP statements and comments that there are still more questions than answers in this sorry case.

  9. This is a tragedy - and a disgrace.

    My earnest thoughts are with Adrian's family - fine and decent people I've had the privilege of meeting and speaking with.

    We cannot say yet what happened to Adrian - this fine young man who had a promising and happy life in front of him. Obviously, there are a number of possibilities which I won't speculate on now.

    What I will say is this; no matter which of those possible explanations proves to be correct - none of them - none at all - are favorable to the leadership of the States of Jersey Police Force.

    This tragedy has been a disgusting failure in leadership and investigative competencies of the most basic kind - from the very outset. That view is widely held - and has been widely held from the first weeks of Adrian's disappearance - throughout the whole community.

    Mike Bowron is finished. He must tend his resignation without prevarication.

    1. I agree with you Stuart 100%. Where oh where has Bowron been? Graham Power was villified at the CoI for his lack of visible presence during Operation Rectangle, but we have seen/heard even less from our Police Chief since his inception in post. Double standards spring to mind as do 'one rule for one and one for another'.

      Something stinks about all this, but of course it does not affect Jersey's reputation' so lets just baffle people with bull poo eh?

  10. I have always understood that if a dead body sinks in water, depending the temperature of the water and providing the body is not weighted in any way it should surface within two to three weeks, if this be the case this could raise interesting questions, does anyone have any thoughts on this?

  12. Such a sad story. Condolences to all involved. Hopefully this will finally begin to bring some closure whichever way things now unfold. I hope you will excuse me but not knowing how blogs work I was not sure if I needed to post any comment on the latest story on the site or could go back to a past one. If inappropriate please just ignore. Following political debate about the forthcoming by-election I had wanted to share my predictions on how the result will pan out.

  14. Hi above. You can always leave comments on an older posting. Lets keep this thread on Adrian. The circus will come to town in September.

    Condolences and thoughts go out to all the family and friends of Adrian.

    It was always going to be a member of the public that found him seeing as the police gave up looking for him last year. Thoughts also go out to the people who found him. That is a position non of us would want to find ourselves in.

    8 months submerged in 4meters of water.

    Questions, questions and questions.

    We should also be searching for Mike Bowron. He has also vanished these past 8 months.

    1. Such a tragedy. I hope there is a public inquiry. Strange that he was found 8 months to the day in an area of water that does not, I assume, have currents and tides and also there is well preserved passport that has been in water for 8 months. And no evidence of disturbed mud/foliage or skid marks when it was originally searched in reasonable weather and no scent to follow by search or cadaver dogs. So very sorry for all concerned. Condolences to family and friends. RIP Adrian.

  17. The sonar picked up fish swimming and an old tyre when sweeping a very small and shallow reservoir which handois is. 4mtrs at its deepest point is not deep. How did they miss a 6ft man?

  18. When I was a teenager we used to play around this place and the catchment pond to the North, I have said to many folk that after seeing the video of Adrian walking past thistle grove that the reservoir would be the obvious place as the land search had produced nothing. The lane to the north of thistle grove leads to the northern end of the reservoir but if Adrian had taken a left turn into the fields to the south and on the western side of the water he would have been in a very dangerous situation as the side is very steep and in the dark he could have walked straight over the edge. All that said I would ask this very simple question? Why was the reservoir not completely drained? after all it is not exactly the pacific ocean but a very small catchment at the head of waterworks valley. My thoughts are now with Adrian's family and even though this very sad news is not what they would have wished for it does bring some solace and closure. There are however some very serious questions about the way this whole matter has been dealt with.

    1. Rico, it matters not whether Adrian could swim, he was homeward bound and didn't suddenly find the urge to go off track for a midnight dip in my opinion. As for earlier comments, it matters not who does any autopsy in Jersey, the findings will be what the Jersey Satanists want them to be, they control everything on an island without the slightest need for accountability!!! Jersey "IS" the "ONLY" place in the world granted the status of "A PECULIAR POSSESSION". Once you actually understand what that means, as Leah McGrath Goodman does, then there will be no more mysteries in Jersey, will there Leah? Look to the Bible for your "PECULIAR POSSESSION" for the scum in the UK, and the debauched filth in Jersey are hiding behind the word of "GOD" whilst worshiping Lucifer. Check out duckduckgo.com instead of googles bullshit, and your search results will start yielding some honest and honourable answers instead of the government dross that you sheep are normally fed....

  20. Some of these posts demonstrate a certain naivety. Unfortunately people go missing all the time. It does not happen very often in Jersey simply because Jersey is a (comparatively) small island nation with a population of 100k or so, less than a large town in the UK. I am aware of cases in the UK and Ireland where bodies were discovered after years or even decades.

    Some of you wanted the police to search the entire island and yet it seems that Adrian's body was found close to where he was last seen, so it seems they were correct to concentrate their search in that area, even though, unfortunately, their searches didn't find him. But now he was been found and hopefully there will be closure for the family.

    We will await have to await the results of the post mortem. Personally, I'd be surprised if they show anything indicating an unlawful death, but who knows. The eagerness of some to use this tragedy as a cosh with wish to beat the Jersey Police to is a mite troubling, frankly.

    2. 'beat the Jersey police'? Likely because under Bowron they have become the same sort of embarrassment that harks back to the 1960s and 1970s when they were happily doing nothing about complaints about Haut de la Garenne. They are selective in their pursuit of criminals, cowardly under the thumb of Jersey's bent prosecution service and ever happy to turn a blind eye to wrong-doing if perpetrated against one of the Jersey establishment's perceived enemies. In this case they were so incompetent that they could not find the poor victim in what even they concluded was the most likely area. Thanks to Jersey's lickspittle media they also escape the relentless attacks which were unjustifiably aimed at Power and Harper.Frankly. 'beating' sounds quite merited.

      Delete
    3. @ 09:47 All of which, whether true or not, is of limited relevance to this case.

      I would grant that in regards to this case specifically, the police certainly do need to do some kind of a review to find out why they missed Adrian's body, seeing as apparently they did conduct some kind of a search on the reservoir.

    4. If Bowron's police are bent and incompetent is it not of relevance to all cases?

  21. Had he of been suffocated by someone would that appear any differently to drowning in an autopsy especially after such a long time left submerged in water.
    Also wasn't he last seen on cctv heading back in the Carrefour solous direction? Yet the reservoir is north past the cctv? Please correct me if I'm wrong but really doesn't add up at all.

  22. Would an autopsy distinguish between him being suffocated by someone or drowning, after such a long time being submerged in water....probably not.
    Also please correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't he last seen on cctv heading back in the Carrefour selous direction yet he turns up in the reservoir that happens to be in the opposite direction, he would of had to have passed that cctv again. Something doesn't add up at all

  27. First up.

    The Myth.

    Why is Stewart Gull trying to make out that Handois Reservoir is as deep as Loch Ness?

    He has said on CTV and BBC Jersey that Handois is very deep in places. According to Jersey Water its deepest point is 4mtrs. The second shallowest reservoir on the Island. Is Gull trying to make excuses for the Adrian possibly not being in handois when extensively searched or trying to pull the UK experts out of the poo?

    Divers and Sonar and nothing found. We can see fish and an old tyre and nothing else. The reservoir is small, shallow and clean from fly tipping.

    Questions Questions

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't know Handois but it is a bit strange as I wonder if the water in it has movement such as rivers and the sea? Is there a bridge over it you can fall off or if you slipped in can you get carried away in the water and trapped somewhere until something changes in the water movement? How do you get to it from where Adrian was last seen? And why might he have gone near it trying to get home and why no trace of his journey to it from where last seen? He seemed to have stuck to roads for a couple of hours before then.

      Delete
    2. Tiny streams running in and out; no water movement, no bridge, no public access ~4'picket fence (not sure about from field sides where there is a bit of a slope into the water)

      Probably possible to fall in but you would probably have to fight your way through some undergrowth.

      Delete
    3. I wonder why he started walking across fields rather than back to town and help, especially when wearing what may be best shoes and suit for a Christmas party that you wouldn't want to get ruined? Must have been very disorientated but with all that fresh air and walking would think may have sobered up a bit? There are a lot of questions still.

  28. This is the one they came to Jersey with. Led by Sergeant Steve Birss

    Tritech Hammerhead offers Search Benefits

    29/08/2014 • Industry Sector: Defence
    Tritech’s high-resolution survey sonar is proving an invaluable tool in search and recovery operations.
    Yorkshire and the Humber Police areas, through their regional underwater search and marine unit, have been using the Tritech SeaKing Hammerhead system to locate missing persons. The system was recently deployed at Snailsden Reservoir, in the peak district, South Yorkshire, England, UK, where it enabled the team to quickly locate the body of a missing person who was believed drowned. Prior to deployment of the sonar, the area was mapped using Tritech’s StarFish 990F, a high-resolution side scan sonar system, to ensure the safety of divers entering the waterway; ultimately reducing the amount of time they had to be in the water, making the operation safer.

    Yorkshire and the Humber Police’s marine unit already provide a vital service for the local area, where their operations can include meticulous missing people and crime searches. In addition, the team also visit schools to educate young children of the dangers of playing in open water.

    Tritech’s SeaKing Hammerhead sonar provides 360 degree scans of the search area, a geo-referenced plotter display and a built in compass ensures accurate marking and mapping of the search area. The SeaKing Hammerhead can be operated in two frequencies; 675 kHz for large area survey, up to a radius of 100m and 935 kHz for high-definition target examination at up to 40m radius.
    Mike Broadbent, Sales Manager, Tritech comments:

    “We are very pleased that our high-technology equipment has been selected and proven to speed-up these time sensitive operations. It is important we support underwater search groups such as those at Yorkshire and the Humber Police and it is also very encouraging hearing the positive feedback from them on their success with the SeaKing Hammerhead and StarFish 990F systems.”
    Sergeant Steve Birss, Yorkshire and the Humber Police marine unit comments:
    “In our role, we are required to locate missing persons quickly and safely, often in nil-visibility conditions the images provided by Tritech’s SeaKing Hammerhead and StarFish 990F were fantastic. The use of this equipment enables us to search larger areas in less time and then quickly guide the diver directly to the missing person. Using this equipment at Snailsden Reservoir reduced the search from weeks to hours, ultimately providing closure for the family concerned.”

    Sergeant Steve Birss, Yorkshire and the Humber Police marine unit continues:
    “In addition, Tritech’s generosity when we were engaged in very high profile searches in York, North Yorkshire proved invaluable. Prior to our purchase and without any questions, a SeaKing Hammerhead was provided for our use at short notice; a StarFish 990F was also brought to the scene by a member of the Tritech team who offered to operate the equipment on our behalf in adverse weather conditions for many hours. We were very impressed by this customer service at a time when the help was needed most.”
    Tritech’s industry-recognised and reliable sonar equipment is proving popular with law enforcement and search rescue/ recovery (SAR) groups for their search, navigation and mapping of a target area. Equipment can be supplied as standalone, part of a packaged solution or tailored to fit a specific operation.

      "It is important we support underwater search groups such as those at Yorkshire and the Humber Police and it is also very encouraging hearing the positive feedback from them on their success with the SeaKing Hammerhead and StarFish 990F systems.”

      So what kind of feedback will the States of Jersey Police be giving then? Considering this super-duper sonar (if the SOJP's version of events are to be believed) can't find a missing person in a body of water little bigger/deeper than a puddle.

      How Stewart Gull can say Handois Reservoir is extremely deep in places when the maximum depth is 4 metres is another mystery.

      Quote: "Sergeant Steve Birss, Yorkshire and the Humber Police marine unit comments:
      “In our role, we are required to locate missing persons quickly and safely, often in nil-visibility conditions the images provided by Tritech’s SeaKing Hammerhead and StarFish 990F were fantastic"

      Stuart Gull was in the media saying that poor visibility could have been a factor in not finding Adrian. This is at odds with the above statement.

      The SOJP CANNOT have it both ways. They have been saying the searches have been "thorough and extensive." If the SOJP are claiming Adrian was in the reservoir from the night he went missing, and wasn't placed there at a later date, then the search of the reservoir was NOT "thorough and extensive" and/or this super duper sonar machine is a piece of junk.

      Again the official line does not stack up.

  29. Experts from a UK police force are aiding the search for Adrian Lynch through specialist sonar equipment. The scanner has been used today to check to Handois Reservoir in St Lawrence, just a short distance from where the 20-year-old was last seen.

    Sonar Specialists from Humberside Police came to the island yesterday and started work on the water alongside the Jersey Fire and Rescue team.

    We try and identify what we're looking for and if that means we have to, we lift the hammerhead and position it a slightly different way to look at it from a different angle so we can determine what it is. If we can't, that's when we will ask the dive team to go in an investigate what it is so we can be sure it's what we're looking for.

  31. Why the passport?

    Adrian (we presume) was reportedly found with his passport in his pocket.
    Did he usually carry his passport with him?

    1. I'm not familar with how strict the licensing laws are in Jersey these says, but from photos Adrian looked relatively young for his age, so it's not inconceivable that he carried a passport on nights out in case he was carded.

      I see from a JEP report that the advice that Adrian may have been suffering from hypothermia on the night he disappeared came from the mainland. So unless the JEP report is incorrect, you can't put that on Bowron, whatever grievances you have against him.

    and most recently:

    http://www.jersey.police.uk/news-appeals/2016/august/body-found-update-2/

    "The post-mortem of the body recovered from Handois Reservoir yesterday has been conducted and concluded today.

    The Home Office pathologist has been unable to establish a cause of death but has determined there are no signs of trauma or third party involvement.

    The condition of the body is consistent with having been immersed in water for several months. Due to the condition of the body, toxicology testing is not feasible, however samples have been taken for DNA analysis in the UK next week for formal identification purposes.

    A dental examination, by a forensic odonatologist has taken place, using the dental records of Adrian Lynch for comparison, they have indicated on a balance of probabilities that they match, however cannot be conclusive.

    Consequently, formal identification can still not be made at this time."


    Confess that I am surprised and disappointed that they are
    "unable to establish a cause of death"
    and that
    "toxicology testing is not feasible"

    It strikes me that Adrian's behaviour (on cctv etc) seems more consistent with being disorientated by drugs rather than simply being intoxicated by alcohol. I would be staggering, swaying long before I was unable to find my way home.

    What is he opinion of those who knew Adrian or have been following this more closely?

    1. See the article attached about cadaver dogs - that they are trained to pick up scents and even detect bodies underwater. Questions that spring to mind are:
      - did he run away from someone and fall? If so he would have been there when the sonar and dogs were used in the search and he would've been found. Sonar, dogs and people can't all fail?
      - was his body placed there after the initial search and that's why not discovered?
      - if his drink had been spiked he would've been comatose, not walking around for hours?

      It is a relief he's been found but surely there should be an independent Inquiry and the case not closed?

  44. Morning again bloggers.

    Just to let you all know that I have finally found the police station. using my highly refined police training I did this by working my way down King and Queen Streets moving expertly from sandwich bar to coffee shop. nodding and smiling sagely as I went. Impressive I think you would all agree.

    The one bit of bad news is I now seem to have mislaid my cap. Can't find the damn thing anywhere.

    3. Hello again bloggers, Mike B again.

      This is very embarrassing but it appears that the police station wot I found was not the right one.

      The people here (who are ever so nice) say that I am in a place called Guernsey.

      But just to keep all of you informed Stuart and me now think my cap may have fallen off while I was walking barefoot across the sea to this Guernsey.

      My cap was ever such a nice one (Ian Le Marquand gave it to me for being a good boy) so I'm sure you will all understand that I have authorised my team to bring in some sonar equipment to help find it.

      No limit on the budget either (well like I say it is a really nice cap!)I'm sure Home Affairs won't mind.

      That's all for now then. I'm sure the cap will soon be found and I can look my best while cruising St Helier town centre. Why am I so confident it will be found you ask?

      Easy-peasy. I'm bring in the boys from Humberside. With their record I'm sure the cap will be found in no time.

      Toodle pip for now. Keep smiling. I always do.

  45. We need a full statement on how much this shambles has cost the taxpayer. Poor Adrian had to be found so no one would quibble about any amount appropriately spent. The trouble is that we now know much of this money (I have heard off the record the sum is around the quarter of a million pounds mark) wasn't utilised as well as it should. 'Why?' is the question that must be asked in the States. Starting with how much the underwater camera/sonar cost and why did something so expensive fail so miserably.

    1. On the ball Rico. If he had been as an inebriated as some would suggest, after a wander around St.Lawrence on a relatively 'not too cold' winter evening, he would surely have sobered up somewhat, even if possibly his drink had been spiked. I think it is probably a fact that those who have had a 'few too many' can still find their way home rather like homing pigeons, regardless of how much they have had to drink, and we know that poor Adrian had been dropped off at Carrefour Selous before and found his way home. Why not this time?

      Nothing will convince me that that is as straightforward as the SoJP are trying to convince us that it is.

    3. Would Handois be a short cut to his house? If not, even with disorientation, you get the feeling he wouldn't have gone that way but towards help as he had already tried knocking on a door and calling out. And I've asked a couple of times why cadaver, searchers and sonar found no trace/scent, particularly if the dogs can find bodies underwater and the sonar is state of the art. Were the dogs used around Handois, was the sonar used all over the reservoir, did searchers go to Handois! If so was he there at the time? Should an Inquiry happen into how this case was conducted so that answers can be found or recommendations into how missing persons' cases are investigated in Jersey in the future?

    4. That's the $1m question, or more to the point, however much that sonar machine cost the tax payer. Because if we are to believe what the SOJP are telling us then the machine was a waste of time and money and not up to the job. How much did that machine cost and did its inability to find Adrian cost his family and friends a further 8 months grief and torment? If the sonar machine is as good as its manufacturers say it is, then that would suggest Adrian wasn't in Handois when it was searched and would have been placed there later.

    5. One of the key questions is this. I know the area well and I would very much like to know exactly 'where' this young man would have been able to enter the reservoir area, the main building area to the south is heavily fenced off as is the boundary on the road to the north. This would mean if he had entered (on a pitch black night!) he would have to have climbed over the guarding. If he had somehow entered from the longitudinal sides (i.e west and east then again I believe these are also fenced (but if they are not they should be) Someone previously stated that to be absolutely sure the water should have been drained, this is a logical thing to do and under the circumstances the right thing to do, it need not have been all the water but enough to carry out a 100% check.

    1. Do you know exactly where in the reservoir he was found? It would be understandable that e sonar and dogs would have struggled in the north settlement pond , the restriction of reeds ,mud and air spaces would give false or obscured readings.
      the south main reservoir is entirely different ,with hard walls of stone mostly , concrete infill ,mostly and a remarkably small volume. in fact 187 mega litres at 4 m maximum depth is about five harve des pas swimming pools. With a decent fish finder you would spot everything worth catching within half an hour,

    2. I believe he was found in a North-West corner but not sure if it was of the North settlement pond or South main reservois. But surely if there had of been trouble with the readings of the sonar, the Humberside cops would have told the Jersey cops, and they could have put divers in when visibility was better? They could have drained the reservois even. After all the cops are telling us their search was "thorough and extensive."

    On the Jersey Waterworks website it states quite clearly that Handois reservoir is only 4 metres in depth at its deepest point. Yet I am quite certain I read in the Jersey Evening Post sometime last week that Handois is 30 meters deep! These figures cannot both be right can they?

    Could you shed any light on what the true depth is if possible? I'm not being pedantic because to me finding a body in 4 meters of water just has to be a whole lot easier than searching for one in a depth more than seven times deeper.

    5. Sorry to clarify: the body was most likely revealed at that time as a result of the heavy rains experienced - this is somewhat different to the winter rains as they were not preceded by an extended period of hot weather and the subsequent lowering of the level of the reservoir. None of this is an explanation as to why the body was not located in the initial search - simply why it came to the surface at that particular time.

    6. Remember this from the Jersey water website: they say that water is constantly being pumped INTO Handois from other reservoirs, ready for it to carry on down into treatment works at the foot of WW Valley.

    This belated admittance that the 'thorough' search of Handois was nothing of the sort is obviously meant as a 'let's move on' statement to cover the backsides of Bowron, Gull and likely the Humberside leadership too.

    But what it must signal are calls for some resignations starting with Bowron at the top. Even if one believes that Adrian was in Handois when it was nominally searched what the family have been put through even by such appalling incompetence is beyond thinking about.

    Those calls for resignations should start in Jersey's seat of government, the States.

    2. Rico,

      "Humberside properly searched that reservoir. On that you can be assured. "

      This is quite a strong statement, and unless I misunderstand you, seems to conflict with a quote attributed to the Humberside Police’s Marine Unit in a recent JEP article.

      http://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/2016/08/13/reservoir-was-not-fully-searched-say-uk-police/

      I am thinking what is going on here behind the scenes is a run for cover to dodge responsiblity between various police forces.

      Of course, that does not have any direct relation to arriving at a conclusion regarding the cause of death for the unfortunate Adrian Lynch. My personal suspicion is that his tragic death wasn't suspicious, but I could be wrong.

  70. Hi Anonymous.

    I just can't believe that Humberside came over and did half a job. If there were grey areas why didn't the SOJP With divers search them? I'm sure Humberside would have informed the SOJP that Handois could not be declared clear. This was December 2015. The SOJP, as far as I know, never returned with divers or sonar.

    When Adrian was discovered in Handois why didn't Stewart Gull come out with the reservoir not being properly searched but he didn't he started going on about its depth.

    I think you are right about the run for cover sketch.

  74. Google earth it and then use street view to see North end of reservoir, which is closest point to where he was heading. There appears to be a big chain link fence around at least part of it, and chest high hedge separating the site from the road. Was the gate left open though? If not I don't see an easy way in from the North. Someone on the ground needs to check out the rest. Maybe a complete video walk around would help those overseas gain a clearer picture. However you look at it by that time of the morning Adrian should have been relatively with it given that he had plenty of time to sober up a little. Unless...... he was having some kind of bad reaction to drugs he took either willingly or was given without his knowledge.

    I confess to hating all this speculation though when the family must be going through so much grief, but at the moment this just does not add up, and they probably want answers as much, or I should say more so than the rest of us. Until a plausible explanation backed up by at least some evidence emerges, I doubt they will get any peace. Its a tragic end to a bright young life. Rest in peace Adrian.

  75. Despite our best efforts and advances in technology, we recognised the limitations of open water searching, including quite hostile terrain. Divers were also used in a targeted approach, but we know visibility was at best poor and cadaver dogs were deployed around the perimeter of the reservoir in January. The Handois reservoir was just one of a number of water searches conducted in the designated search area. Further targeted searching had taken place as recently as July, but that did not include the reservoir. Sadly, the reservoir only gave him up last week.

  78. The Biology of Drowning
    The human body is slightly heavier than fresh water. Consequently, when
    unconsciousness takes place, the body sinks. Fat bodies are slightly more
    buoyant than thin bodies, but still all bodies will sink in fresh water. If there is
    considerable clothing on the body along with shoes, articles in the pockets and
    other paraphernalia, it renders the body considerably less buoyant. The question
    is often asked, "When a body sinks, how far down will it go?" There is some
    dispute on this point, but the very best evidence indicates that a body will go to
    the bottom regardless of how deep the water may be, unless it meets with some
    obstruction or upward current which tends to prevent it. As a body sinks into
    deep water, the pressure of the water tends to compress gasses in the
    abdominal and chest cavities with the result that the body displaces less water as
    it sinks deeper and consequently becomes less and less buoyant, the further
    down it goes.
    Almost without exception, a dead body lying on the bottom of a river or lake will
    come to the surface again. This is due to gas formed in the body tissues as
    decay occurs. When enough gas has formed to inflate the tissues and distend
    the skin, the body becomes lighter than water and rises to the surface. This
    process is due to the action of bacteria within the body. Consequently, the length
    of time that elapses before the body rises depends not only upon the amount of
    fat contained in the tissues but on the temperature of the water. If the water is
    warm, the formation of gas within the body occurs rapidly and the body may rise
    to the surface in a day or two. However, if the water is cold, bacterial action
    takes place very slowly and it may take several weeks before the body appears
    on the surface. When a body is fully distended it is almost impossible to sink
    even with counter weights

    ReplyDelete
  79. A frequently asked question is, "When a person drowns, where may you expect
    to find the body and if it later comes to the surface, where may you expect to find
    it?" When a drowning occurs in a river, the most common mistake is to search
    for the body too far downstream. Sinking takes place immediately, which results
    in the victim reaching the bottom close to the point he was last seen on the
    surface. When the body begins to rise, it will appear on the surface not far from
