Body recovered from Germantown lake

slated in mainstream at 8:04 pm

News on the homefront… literally… :-/

WJZ: Body Recovered After Car Driven Into Lake

Washington Post: Body, Car Found in Lake

WUSA9: Body Recovered From Lake In Germantown

Supposedly the woman(body) in the car was from Poolesville.. and that she committed suicide.

Pretty difficult to accidentally drive into the lake, cuz the rail is pretty clear and comprehensive across the dam/bridge…

Visual of the location

Questions as to whether there was another passenger in the car..
Someone actually saw the car going into the lake, and snapped a picture of it (from phone? dunno) and called 911.. They didn’t believe him when they got there (dark out, and car submerged) but he had the photographic evidence.

Not sure how to feel about cuz I don’t know what really happened….
Apparently the lake is really really dirty at 20-25 feet depth (according to the divers)..

I had thought the bit of commotion on the dam/bridge, and the yellow tape blocking off the corner of the lake was for construction/repaving reasons..
