When we were gone and trying to post from mom's phone, we mentioned a dead body. Mom told us about it and showed us where it happened. Here is the REAL and TRUE story as mom explained to us. Mom spent the first 18 years of her life in Indiana. All but the last few years she lived in a place that was just a bit more than an hour from Chicago. She says an hour from Chicago will get you lots and lots of this . . .
Yes, mom was a child of the corn and loves corn fields. But, on to our story . . . Here is the house she lived in for most of those years . . .
She lived there with 2 sisters and 2 brothers. Mom says it was a tight fit. During the day, mom and her siblings would spend the day exploring or riding their bikes. One of the places they often went was a place called West Creek. Here it is . . .
Mom's brother and younger sister would go there to fish or look for worms.
Mom went there to smoke. On this day her brother, sister and a friend were walking along the banks of West Creek looking for worns. They saw a car stop on the bridge and throw something off. But they were quite a ways from the bridge at that point. This is the bridge where the car stopped.
This is a view of the bridge looking back on where they lived. Mom says it was in the Boondocks.
So the kids went running home to tell their parents. Then the rest of the family went to the bridge (to see if it was REAL) and notified police. Yes, it was real. Mom could see the woman's broken leg sort of sticking up pointing to the sky. She didn't feel the need to get any closer.
As it turned out the woman had gotten an illegal abortion by a physician in Chicago. She died as a result of the procedure and he dumped her body in hopes of not having to deal with the reality of the situation. So now you know the story of when mom's brother found the dead body.
