My Search Effort - Airport Lakes Park - Photos
I initially searched this park once on Labor day. I did not have my camera at that time so I did not want to move any items I had seen att hat time. I retured on September 12th and these are the photos from that search.
There are way to many to post/comment individually to each photo so I thought I would post them and if people wish to ask some specifics I will try to respond as well as I can to those concerns.
Background on this park: It has been around for a while, you will see a tag I photo'd from the bottom of one of the benches which dates the bench to 06' This park is next to a huge lake right where the airplanes pass overhead on their landing approach to the OIA. This is just off of McCoy road. This visit with the photos was at 5pm the park was very empty as I exited there were a few more poeple there for a little league soccer practice/game. Maybe 30 people at that time. There were areas of this park back in the woods where you can see evidence of "homeless" and or "party" hangouts.
The above link shows the location on a map.
You will also notice that on my way out I circled the south most hotel and took some shots from behind it including it's dumpster and along the south perimiter as well and in one picture you can see the Airport Tower. Then I traveled southwest onto McCoy road and took a few images of a canal I have an interest to search along one day. This canal leads back to the big lake next to the park. This park is opposite the lake from Conway road. It is also very near the A's residence. And minimally used as far as I can tell.
Here are the Slideshows:

The individual files are in photobucket as well if you wish to post a specific one to ask a question. If you follow the progression of the slide show this also follows my path of travel in the order that I took the pictures.

Wow Frip that's alot of hiking.
I was wondering...do you know if any of these areas were under water the last time TES was around or after Fay hit? Was it soggy walking or fairly dry in most places you went?
Sorry too many questions.
Thanks in advance!

Wow! Thank you! This is the area I was looking into as a possibility on the Google maps.
I saw the gates out front. Is this park closed at night? Also, how close can you get to the woods in a car? Can you drive though the wooded areas?

This park is relatively un-used at certain times of the day, each time I was there it was very empty. And I am sure when the soccer practice was over it went back to 2-3 people.
And those woods are deep.

Great job, Friptzap!

I don't think it really affects the likelihood of being used, as a place to hide a body.
I have a place where I hike in the woods and it is in central Florida. It never ceases to amaze me, how quickly it gets from thickly settled with homes to completely isolated---no one would hear you scream.
Anyway, I will be in the middle of "nowhere" struggling to move forward because I am off the used trails and making my own way. And it never fails....I will come across something ridiculously out of place such as a bunch of beer cans or a bag of trash or a pillow and tarp. Trash or not, it would be a good place to hide a body. Likelihood of the body being discovered is next to nil.

Why would anyone put a body in those places?

They appear totally open/exposed and most are public areas, young trees planted, BBQ grills, etc. No one in their right mind would put a body there.

In the kind of woods I am talking about, I can pass a dead deer on the way in and a few hours later, armies of vultures have reduced it to a skeleton which is then scattered by the elements and other critters. No gators needed--body gone!
OT, cute squirrel...
