Sometime ago a group of scuba divers dove into the Blue Hole, eager to explore every nook and fissure of the smooth-walled sinkhole. After climbing out, they realized one of their divers had disappeared.

Six months later, the body of that diver finally surfaced, but not in Santa Rosa. It was discovered, the story claims, in Lake Michigan - more than a thousand miles away - naked, waterlogged and with much of its skin scuffed off, as if it had been pushed and scraped through miles of rocky tunnels.

I don't believe the story, but it is interesting. :)

As quoted on page 2 of that story, it is impossable for the body to have ended up in that location. If it was, it would be more than likely to be major news than in the strange section of the local internet newpaper section.

But it does have the feel of a good urban myth though.
