RSBM RSBM Hi @Federico_A and @Steve13. Your humor has added some welcome levity in this very sad case. And clearly you are dismissing my thoughts about whether DC's remains and/or her kit were hidden by a third party in a lake. I don't disagree, it is a long shot. But this case has so many weird facts and circumstances, it is hard to dismiss many ideas. But, I do believe if ED committed suicide by drowning in a lake with a weighted (i.e. stones) backpack, she could get fairly far into a lake by swimming until hypothermia prevented her body from proceeding and then dying from asphyxia. So my recent question may still be relevant. If in a lake, could scavengers have quickly processed any of ED's body that washed up, while her backpack may still remain submerged? Again, a long shot, but I still wonder if that is a plausible scenario.
