#1 Mysterious Missing Persons Case Resurfaces
In 1969, three people driving a 1950 Chevy were reported missing – and were never found. Only twelve months later, three more people went missing, all teens from Elk City, Oklahoma, this time driving in a brand new, blue 1969 Camaro which simply vanished. The case has remained open for close to forty years.
#2 Five Bodies Found In Lake
Highway patrol officers testing their sonar equipment at Foss Lake near Elk City, Oklahoma stumbled upon the rusting 1969 Camaro and a Chevrolet dating back to the 1950s. They later discovered three bodies, those of the teens in the Camaro, and two others.
#3 Brand New 1969 Camaro
Jimmy Williams, Leah Johnson, and Michael Rios went missing while on their way to a football game on November 20, 1970. Over 40 years later, William’s Chevy Camaro was found at the bottom of Foss Lake by police divers who were in the middle of a training exercise.
The other bodies were later identified as the remains of 69-year-old John Alva Porter and his friends Nora Duncan and Clebern Hammack. The discovery of two rusting vintage cars containing six bodies has reignited the mystery of how three teenagers and three other people vanished more than four decades ago
#4 Closure To The Mysteries
Their families were relieved to have some closure after all of this time, but many question the circumstances of these deaths. Locals are skeptical that these were simply two isolated accidents and are demanding other areas of the lake be searched as well.
#5 Was It Foul Play
Police can not rule out foul play in the two cases since they both appear to have happened in the same “eerily similar fashion” but at different times. Officers at the scene suggested that they may never know what actually happened so long ago to the cars and the victims, but they plan to investigate thoroughly.
#6 Divers Were Conducting Tests
Initially, divers were sent down to conduct training with a new sonar device when they hit upon the two sunken vehicles in the same location. Police divers were sent back down to investigate the cars before they were pulled out of the lake and the bones were discovered.
