This morning there is police tape surrounding parts of "Bigfoot" park (on Turnpike) and a lot of people standing around, including (according to a neighbor) the principal of Natoma Station Elementary, Mr. Burns. Does anyone know what is going on there?

No one seemed to be moving -- just standing around, including the ambulance and fire people.

I am thinking maybe a dead body???

The Son of some friends of ours on Hopfield Drive appears to have been murdered and then strung up in a tree last night at the local park. I believe he was a junior at Folsom High. He was an avid skateboarder. I sure HOPE it was not race related as he is one of very few semi-black kids in the area.

No other details - more later-

Another great  day in the adventure of exploration and sight.

Please tell me you're joking.

That is absolutely terrible -- awful. I feel sick thinking about it.

Let's be real careful here. We all know this forum has a history of easily taking speculation in one post and creating 100 posts of ugliness from it.

A body found in a tree is probably being investigated as a possible suicide as well as a possible homicide. Wait and let the police do their job.

My information came from the next door neighbor of the guy that found the kid this morning. I didnt presume that it was race related and simply said I HOPE it is not. It could have easily been skaters vs others or something else entirely that we will not find out for some time.

The boy in question was my son's best friend. I just got off the phone with my son and he is devastated, as am I.
I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else's fault.

I am in shock, I live closeby and did not see anything when I was driving to work around 8:00 am. I hope children walking through the park did not see the dead body. Our condolence to the family.
