  • Kym, Have they called the Coroner to remove the body? I don’t know anything about it but why would someone burn a car on the Avenue??? Just my thoughts

  • Mister Toad's Wild Ride

    Probably overheated trying to get from Meager’s to the Riverwood before last call!

  • Does any one know the make & model? What was the cause? Maybe a burning cigarette rolled to the upholstery? How long was it abandoned?

  • I think this is how locals force action on abandoned vehicles which otherwise can sit for eons before being towed. Also erases ownership if VIN is destroyed.

  • Was it the Jetta allegedly taken from Willits?

  • I stopped yesterday to take a picture of the tree on the rock just south of Phillipsville and on the old highway was a newer to me looked like white suburban stripped along the road with an impromptu garbage dump in and around the vehicle, I almost took a picture but it was just a lot of garbage and e waste but seemed kind of creepy I got my pictures of the rock then left.
