(From ABC NEWS out of Chicago)
February 25, 2013 - "The alarming number of young men drowning across the country has caught the attention of federal law enforcement...Federal authorities are said to be considering a nationwide investigation."
ABC reports that a group of former law enforcement personnel working together with independent investigators who all call themselves the "I Team" and who also run an organization called Find Me, studied hundreds of drowning men cases, many of which are covered extensively here on this weblog.
They have similarly and unequivocally concluded that there are now too many such deaths occurring throughout the United States, and that it's a statistical improbability that they are all accidents, whether or not these young men were drunk or sober.
Former federal drug enforcement agent Jerry Snyder is the founder of the not-for-profit victim-search group. He went on record as saying, "When we are talking numbers, there are 194 bodies. If half of those are homicides we have a problem here."
So, whatever beliefs people may have about THE CASE OF THE DROWNING MEN, whoever they think the culprits might be, mainstream theories or fringe, it doesn't matter. One thing is very clear now: Smiley's days are numbered.
