  • The new normal? I guess this means the missing persons list is getting shorter

    Wow i live here, bodies closer everyday.. when do i get to find one while having my afternoon stroll??

  • Nothing surprises me now here

    Another life gone this year. Condolences to the family.,may the victim be identified soon so a family has answers

  • I hope that it’s the fisherman for the family’s sake.

  • Om mani padme hum 💛💐

  • A second body, horrible as it is, maybe two families will have closure.

  • Ive lived here all my life and doesnt it seem odd that there seems to be alot of bodys being found in the rivers& on our beaches off & on alot the past 8 years or so years before that it never seemed to happen but super rarely,if at all. It always seems to be in clumps then stops for a year or so then starts again. I cant be the only one who has noticed this,or I am I?

    • Look around, more bodies are found everywhere around the world.
      Britain is bad, India really bad.
      The local media reports them but nobody notices the pattern.
      Why? Humans have engineered their own extinction, all the animals
      have been dying off fast.
      Too much contamination in the water creates poison not only for the fish…
      Where is the crab fisherman who went overboard?
      People who must sleep outdoors are at risk too, environmental dangers near water
      all drivers who pass out while driving and crash are being contaminated by poison.

  • Missing Covelo woman?

    Thanks kym for not deleting my comment. Its a personal feeling and i dont understa d why loco keeps deleting my comment, i wrote the same thing and not offending anyone. Anyeays its more likely the lady from petrolia or fisherman

  • Seems so weird 2 bodys in less then a week. 1 in Matole and now 1 on Centerville beach is so very creepy.. I am begining to wonder if at some point if there is a Serial Killer On The Loose.. I know it said in both cases that the bodies were badly decomposed. It could be one of the missing people thats been gone for a long time, who knows. I do know that there are families who will get somewhat peace of mind and closure. Prayers also to the family’s of these people. So Sad Things Like This Happens. We used to be a tight knit community where no one had to worrie about things like this several years ago. WOW HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY……

      Also stop freaking out. This is normal. Sorry you finally started tuning in, you can drop out if you cant handle real life out here. As far as serial killers go [edit], seems to be serial attacks on bums everywhrre here in arcata and dont forget 4 black homeless men in vegas last few week were shot. There was a dead guy attacked under a bridge near myrtletown. Did the vegas guy come here amd burn the 2 homeless guys sleeping one in front of gville church and one at eurekas social security office?? No ppl just suck and its not the same person

    • If you read the article of the body found in the van duzen a few weeks ago you would know its from the missing giy from a car wreck in november who was apparently having a mental episode. This maybe be the other guy who wondered off from a car wreck on 36 a month ago. Hoping it is for closure for his family

  • RHBB do they know if it is Male or Female? Or when will they know?

    • Mytruckisahillbeater

      Give it a few days will ya geez they just found it today in the late afternoon dayum. Age of instant gratification yup nother example of where ppl cant just let ppl do thier work and let things come as they come

    • The Coroner’s Office may know, but they haven’t released the information. They have not released the gender of the body they found on Mattole Beach on the 21st either.

  • Dayum. DAYYYYUUUMMM! Daylight come an me wan go home!

  • Over the last 5-8 years athletics shoes have been floating to shore with feet still tied into them along the North American Pacific Coast. Now that is interesting!

  • One nice thing about more people in this area , in the 70s this body won’t have been found, nobody ever at Centerville beach back then

  • Only the Miranda brothers lived out by centerville back in the 70s. And the navy complex. I hope they can ID both of the bodies soon. May they Rest In Peace.
