    Here's a google map of the Pickle Tavern. If you blow it up using the + sign on the right you can see the Chippewa Trail right behind the tavern and right on the river. It would be way too easy to end up in the water if transversing that late at night after drinking at a bar. Praying for this young man's family. Google Maps

    Imo, Jim, Jack, Johnnie, and Hiram are killing these young men.
    There are not rogue murderers on the loose just looking to push these guys into water causing drowning.
    I take my tinfoil hat off for my opinion.
