    Jawbone Of Fabled Sea 'Devil' Discovered In Russian Lake

    Jawbone Of Fabled Sea 'Devil' Discovered In Russian Lake

    [ranking: 8]
    Researchers using scanning equipment in Lake Labynkyr announced on February 1, 2013, that they had discovered what they claimed were the skeletal remains of an ancient sea serpent, described locally as a "devil," not unlike the Loch Ness monster.  
    Though evidence was scant, the researchers said they found a jawbone and other bone fragments at the bottom of the lake. This is a "pics or it didn't happen" situation, however, so no jawbone, no sea devil.
    Still, Lake Labynkyr is interesting, as it often reaches temperatures of -80 degrees but does not freeze.

    In 2015, someone snorkeling in Cienega Springs, AZ, thought he'd come across a pair of real-life skeletons sitting at the bottom of the Colorado River. He notified authorities, who sent their own diver only to discover the skeletons were plastic, wearing sunglasses, and sitting in lawn chairs.
    ??I don??t think they were trying to set up anything to scare anyone. I think they were gonna try to be funny,?? said Lt. Curtis Bagby of the La Paz County Sherriff's Office.

    The Slaying That Wasn't, Apparently

    The Slaying That Wasn't, Apparently

    [ranking: 1]
    On December 11, 2012, investigators discovered the remains of Tom Sublett, the commissioner of Glynn County, GA, at the bottom of a nearby lake. Of course, numerous bodies turn up in and around lakes all the time. What makes this particular case intriguing is that Sublett's hands were bound together and there was a bullet cavity in his head. Police found an empty holster in his car and ammunition, but the weapon never turned up.
    Foul play, right? Not according to a Glynn County medical examiner, who determined Sublett had taken his own life.  
    That's right. Despite leaving no note and displaying no unusual behavior, despite having no financial issues or problems with drugs and/or alcohol, and despite the fact the man's hands were bound together and no weapon was found in the area, authorities determined that Sublett had done himself in.  
    Smacks a bit of cover-up, doesn't it?

    [ranking: 9]
    In June 1988, a live 100-pound World War II-era bomb was discovered at the bottom of Lake Washington in Seattle. We don't yet know how it got there, but the going theory is that a warplane flying in or out of an airfield that once stood in the area may have dumped the bomb in the lake.
    Why a pilot would do such a thing remains a mystery.

    Norwegian Lake Was The Home Of Nazi Nuclear Artifacts

    [ranking: 10]
    Allied forces managed to sink a ferry as it sailed along Lake Tinn in 1944, en route to a secret Nazi base where scientists were attempting to build a nuclear bomb. It was believed the ferry carried barrels of "heavy water," an integral ingredient produced by a nearby hydroelectric plant.
    Whether or not the ferry contained dangerous materials remained a mystery until 2005, when it was confirmed that the heavy water was indeed on board.
