    WI - Michael T. Philbin, 21, Oshkosh, 8 Jan 2012

    This one is not looking too good since there might be a link between Philbin's disappearance as being the victim of a drowning about the same time in the 2nd link.

    WI - Michael Philbin, 21, Oshkosh, 8 Jan 2012

    Son Of Packers Offensive Coordinator Is Missing, Believed To Have Fallen Into Icy River (Deadspin)
    A rescue team in Oshkosh, Wis., is searching the icy waters of the Fox River for a person reported to have fallen in, while police are looking for a missing man they have identified as Michael T. Philbin. According to local reports, Philbin is the 21-year-old son of Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

    What possibly happened?
    Tipster Jeffrey emailed to say this about the area in question:

    I went to UW-Oshkosh for a year, and that part of the river where they body went missing is the perfect place to go for a drunken piss at 2am... its right across the street (High street, of course) and behind a building from the main part of campus.

    Looks like the police have identified the body as Philbin's. Waiting for MSM article.

    That is so sad. I know the ice is not very thick in most of these rivers this winter. A place that normally would be safe to walk on is not at this time.

    I was thinking about the Smiley face killer...seems to target Frat boy types in the area.. Also, not to speak ill of the dead, but Micheal was convicted of raping 2 young girls back in 2009. Maybe the smiley face killer is a "Dexter" type? Soooo just thinking outloud, don't pay attention to the guy behind the curtain...

    So.....Smiley-Face Killer anyone? I'm a great doubter of that whole scenario (doesn't mean I'm right) but I've had enough experience at drinking by rivers that the probable cause of most college-age males's deaths from drowning in them are i) slipping while walking on the banks, or ii) slipping while peeing in the river.
