When ghosts are replaced by hunters

Home House Hunt

An old abandon farm house sits waiting for hunting season when its city owners arrive.  Smoke curls from the chimney, hunting stories resound within it walls once again, before it is left bereft of human company for another year.

Dive team examines mystery vehicle in river

Home Clayton Co. Dive

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office received a report on August 17, 2017 of a vehicle discovered in the Mississippi River near Marquette, IA. 
   The information was reported by a local fisherman who was using new side imaging sonar and discovered what appears to be at least one vehicle on the bottom of the west channel of the river. 
   On November 2, 2017 the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office enlisted the assistance of the La Crosse County Dive Unit and conducted a successful dive, locating the vehicle.  Water clarity, depth, and swift current prohibited a thorough processing of the vehicle.  The vehicle was unable to be recovered and arrangements are being made for a 2018 dive.        Specifics on how, when, or why the vehicle ended up in the river are unknown.  The Sheriff’s Office is releasing this information to enlist the assistance of the public in gathering information to the unanswered questions.  If you have information please contact the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office at 563-245-2422.
