    Which certainly isn't consistent with an 80 year old man being able to get to the location.

    I don't get it either, Kip. A call to 911 could've saved his life if the rapids did in fact take him away. If they arrived within the hour there at least could've been an attempt to save him.

    I think someone earlier in the thread mentioned being in contact with his sister and there's definitely a lot more to this story. I wonder if it was a premeditated murder type of scenario designed to look like an accident OR they were heavily invested in illegal activity.

    Maybe he knew where the 'treasure' was and hired these 3/4 people to help retrieve it. The fact of the 'contract' sounds like he was very serious about its location. I am sure each and every one of them had cell phones. WHY didn't one of them make a call to 911. I myself have called 911 many times for road accidents, sickness, even a robbery for people other than myself, it isn't hard to do. I believe there's a chance that this treasure was found or maybe what they believed was a location of the treasure. Since they had a contract with him, maybe they decided the best way to reap the benefits would be an accident. I mean NO life vest and NO helmet on a class V-VI rapids is suicide. Did any of them have life vests? Maybe it was an accident and they just utilized the incident to keep the treasure for themselves...these are all things I'm sure LE is looking at.

    So these people just up and left because they just didn't know what to do...WHAT...Then they waited well over a week to call family and tell them he was in an accident but 'sorry guys we panicked and didn't call 911'. I'm wondering if they reported his 'accident' to the family before or after the family officially reported him missing and LE put together this anon 911 call from a photographer and it hit MSM. I am thinking maybe they would've kept their mouths shut and when his body surfaced everyone would have chalked it up to an accident but they weren't expecting this photographer watching from the other side of the river...chances are he had telephoto or they would've seen him and tried to solicit help maybe..that's if there's no conspiracy...this is ALL MOO. There's too much hinky about this whole thing. I just can't believe that anyone could be so inhumane as to leave a drowning friend and not even make an anon call to 911 themselves...

    All opinions are my own.

    Until the last week or so when the news came out about those creeps in Florida who stood and laughed as someone drowned, I couldn't believe that anyone could be so inhumane as to leave a drowning stranger and not even make an anonymous 911 call.

    I am starting to feel old or something because it seems to me that the younger generation has no empathy...to just stand there and record for their five minutes of internet infamy? And do nothing? Life isn't a video game, we can't re spawn when we die (not blaming games I play a few myself). It's got to be parenting or lack there of...in both these cases people stood by and did nothing...for no logical reason. I'm sorry but I don't buy the 'Wow we panicked and just left' business...and those guys in fl that videoed the man drowning, my god, where's their empathy, their knowledge of right and wrong. I'm just at a loss...poor people.

    I cannot help but think if my step-brother had stayed in prison and finished his sentence (on December 12th 2018) he would not be missing right now. :-(

    As awful as it sounds, I wonder if the other members of the rafting party continued to look for the treasure during the 10-day timespan when they didn't report Eric falling in the river. Hmmm...... MOO

    Or maybe they were very intoxicated, and that's why they didn't call LE?

    Found deceased☹️: http://www.local8now.com/content/news/Body-found-in-Colorado-identified-as--471372903.html

    Eric Ashby moved to Colorado in summer 2016, and according to his father, Paul Ashby, Eric's goal was to start a whole new life. However, his plans were cut short when on June 28, 2017, he went underwater while trying to cross the Arkansas River and never resurfaced.

    According to the Fremont County Coroner, the body identified as that of Ashby was found east of a cement plant in the Arkansas River.

    From article linked above...
    In November 2017, Ashby's parents told Local 8 News their son's friends had deserted him when he was drowning. His parents channeled their grief into action, however, starting a petition to pass new legislation in Tennessee.

    "Eric's Law" states that people must call for help if they see someone fighting for their life.

    "This law simply says you have to do something. You can't just walk away," Paul Ashby told Local 8 News.

    *********

    Wow. It's sad that we now have to have a law about something that should be total common sense. What idiots those 'friends' are. I'm guessing that drugs were probably involved but still...there is no excuse for that BS.
