- A jogger passing by a small, neglected wooded lot near Cardoza earlier
this week led police to their discovery of an abandoned vehicle lodged
deeply into the woods, amidst a pile of illegally dumped trash that
typically accumulates in unmonitored abandoned lots in the city.
Wedged between a sofa, a mattress, and a decommissioned
dumpster, was a still-functioning, light teal mid-60's Chevy Impala,
modified in a "gangsta" style. The car is being examined by
Forensics investigators, as it bears a resemblance to a vehicle thought to
have been sighted near the strange fire on the Waterfront back in
July, as well as in the vicinity during the fire at Charlie's bar in
Northwest and the Jason Turnbull shooting a few months ago. The jogger's
identity is being withheld for safety reasons, as is the name of the owner
of the recovered vehicle, pending further investigation.
