    amazing stories!! I lived in Kentucky and there was a book in Louisville that listed a BUNCH of bodies that were pulled from the Ohio River in Barrels. If memory serves me, there was no way to know where the barrels originated. Some had more than 1 body in them and some were shot. This was in the old days. But can you imagine pulling barrels out of the rivers now. I guess that was one way to get rid of people you didn't like. Thanks for starting this thread.
