OH - Robert Sam Dahler, 31, Marietta, 24 June 2016Officials still searching for missing Marietta man
The search began Friday after his belongings were found on the Washington Street Bridge around 10AM.
After speaking with friends, first responders think Dahler jumped into the Muskingum River, but it is not believed to be a suicide.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
"When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

List of reasons one jumps from bridge, excluding suicide :
1: Gratuitous display of physical prowess, usually has witnesses, ime.
2: Personal achievement. Perhaps Robert jumps from stuff as a hobby?
3: A dare, rival?
4: To retrieve a valuable item that entered the water previously.
5: Under the influence of drugs or alcohol
I am out of ideas. :-/

Where I grew up people frequently jump from bridges to swim. Usually it's from low bridges over deep water and turns out okay, but there are frequent incidents that go wrong. Low water level, water moving quicker than anticipated, injuries upon impact, unfamiliar with that particular bridge/location, etc. I obviously don't know if that is even fathomable in this situation, but I have been surprised by the reckless decisions people make without any concern until it goes wrong.

I just saw that the link has been updated. They recovered his body from the river. There will be an autopsy. RIP. Maybe he was mentally ill and hallucinating or something. What a tragedy.
