Tahoe Daily Tribune Story

Wow. Tahoe is known as a lake that does not give up its secrets easily. Last Summer’s body recovery search also resolved an old tragic suicide, but also brought an unknown body, clearly the victim of foul play, up out of the depths of Tahoe, like a haunting mobster rising out of the shady mists of Tahoe’s legendary past.

Interesting things are going to start surfacing, once Lake Tahoe warms-up enough to support bacterial growth at depth. It’s only a matter of time.
