Another Victim of the Huron

This story appered in The Ypsilantian of Thursday, April 16, 1903.

The Huron river, near the Peninsular mill, has an insatiable greed for human victims, and already it has claimed its yearly sacrifice this season. Saturday afternoon Ernest Splinters, aged 22, was working near the top of the new bridge that is being built just below the mill, when he slipped and fell into the water. George Williams, who came from BAy City with Splinters, made an heroic effort to rescue him but filed, and himself was exhausted by the struggle with the fierce current. The body was not recovered until Sunday afternoon, and was found lodged on the island a short distance down stream.

Mr. Splinters was said to be an exceedingly agile swimmer, but it is thought he must have been partly stunned by the fall. He came from Bay City, where his bride of three months resides. His brother took the body to Bay Cith Monday. Corner Watts holds the inquest today.

Are there any recent statistics for Huron River deaths? I've been reading about Lake Superior and its wrecks--the bodies down there are apparently preserved because of the cold, fresh water and tissues slowly turn to wax. The Huron River isn't deep enough for wrecks, right?

Dear teaspout,

Sorry, but there are no wrecks in the Huron River, which is a shame. I am not aware of any recent deaths in the Huron River, but i may ahve missed a few. The section of the river from Lowel to Ypsilanti has over the years clamed a number of bodies, and most likely more deaths then on any other section of the river. I have no idea why, but it is like something evil is there.

These are real, genuine, They are verifiable and student records and
transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon.
