Death at Dickson Oval??

Mrshmellowman 20 July 2009 19

When I got home last Friday afternoon around 5.00pm – I saw that there was a temporary blue fence erected down near the drains at Dickson Oval. There was a police car parked behind it and the bridge over the drain to the bicycle path was taped off with police tape.

As I watched, what looked just like a coroners van arrived and seemed to be loading. I had to pick up the little Mrshmellows but when I returned there was no sign of the cars, the fence or the tape.

Does anyone know what happened? I was away on the weekend and did not see any news.

I remember one quite a few years ago where someone died in the middle of Garran oval one night. From memory, they were having a drunken nap. Unfortunately it was about -6 overnight and the beer coat just wasn’t quite warm enough. I concede the story I heard may just be a friend of a friend of a friend said….

Coulda been pommy’s mate wandering down hill from Cook

That’s actually what sprang into my mind, too. Someone who’d ingested some substances and for whom the ambulance didn’t come.

Sadly, I live for trivia like this. Washboard Hank is now lasered into the febrile synapses of my brain forever!

Poor form, Jb.
The illusion of anonymity might only be an illusion, but its still a nice one to have.
