Six bodies of missing persons from decades ago were found quite by accident when law enforcement officers were checking out some new sonar equipment in a lake. The equipment found two cars, laying side by side, and in each car there were three bodies. They found a total of six bodies, who are believed to be missing people from two separate cases decades ago.
According to Fox News on Sept 18, it is believed all the bodies are those of missing persons, who were reported missing in two separate incidents in the late 1950s and another case from 1970. The cars were only in 12-feet of water and it looked as if they had been driven off a boat ramp into the lake. The two cars containing the six bodies were discovered in Foss Lake in western Oklahoma.
In 1970 three teens were reported missing who were last seen on Nov. 20 out driving in a 1969 Camaro. 16-year-old Jimmy Williams was the owner and driver of this car. Williams was with two friends, 18-year-old Leah Johnson and 18-year-old Thomas Rio and the trio were never seen or heard from again. That is until this week when their bodies were discovered inside a car that was pulled up from the watery grave of Foss Lake in Oklahoma.
The second car is a 1950s Chevy and it is linked to the disappearance of a couple from the town of Canute, who have been missing since the early 1960’s. A third body discovered in that car is believed to be that of an older gentleman, who was also never seen again since the same day that the couple went missing. It is believed the couple was on their way to the lake and picked up their friend for the day.
None of the six bodies have been identified, but it all fits said the unidentified police officer talking to the media on Fox News live on Wednesday.
It seems the first day of training with the new sonar equipment proved extremely successful. Family members have final closure of now knowing the fate of their missing loved ones who disappeared almost a half of a century ago.
