    What do you think, they're being abducted, then drowned?

    I can't find any information on any other missing women in this area.

    I read about the the other two women found.

    One, they think her little dog got away from her when she was getting ready to leave her home. They think the dog may have run down to the river and fell into the ice and she went after him and did too.

    The second woman was often known to sit along the river. I believe she had a high alcohol level, .28 or something like that.

    I think this is the time of year they start finding people who may have fallen in the river during winter, .......now that the snow has melted.

    I was spooked when I first read this, but I think it's probably explainable. Who this latest victim is, I don't know. Guess we'll have to wait until they identify her.

    From July 2007:


    Investigators have identified the woman whose body they found Friday evening in the St. Joseph River as Sandra Dobson...

    Dobson was in her early 50s and lived in a group home on Western Avenue in South Bend.
