Jesus. Heard that story *shudder*.

The good news is that you're probably more likely to get hit by a bus crossing the street outside a hotel than to have "that" happen to you.

At this point I still think it was some drug induced act on her own part. But time will tell - or the autopsy will.

During the early part of the 20th Century there was a massive oil strike in Cromwell, Oklahoma. This bought in people to work the oil fields and Gamblers to fleece them out of their money.

Sometimes, for the good of the system, some poor soul would get wacked in order to provide a sort of lesson to the other Bums out there that might think of not paying off their losing bets. The bodies were normally disposed of in a Crude oil tank by just dropping them through the hatch found on top of each tank.

The bodies, being lighter than oil, would sink to the bottom and not be found until the tank was drained for a work-over/service which was normally every 20 years. (Tanks at a tank farm are never drained entirely during routine use. There is always a few feet of oil in the bottom that the roof floats on. The floating roofs weigh 202,000 pounds, so if they hit the bottom they can crack the floor.)

By the time the bodies were being found the oil boom was long since over and all the Gamblers had moved on.

Perhaps who ever dumped the body was just trying to be old school about it.

We always run out and pick up a case or two of bottled water when staying at hotels.

Pure grain alcohol, to keep from impurifying your precious bodily fluids?

Sometime around 1984 the City of Long Beach switched the Chemical they used to Purify the Water; it gave Me some gas issues.

A friend of mine told Me about Electric Water Distillers you could buy for your Home; and I bought one.
Ever since then I have been drinking Distilled Water.

I started with one similar to the one in the pic that was made in Japan bought from Sears and it held up for about 18 years.

I went to Sears for another one but they no longer carried them and had replaced them with another type. That one only lasted 3 years.

By that time I was on the Internet and again bought one Made in the US that looks like the one in the picture and have been using that with no issues so far.

You would not believe the stuff that is left on the bottom.

Also after 5 years of drinking distilled Water I had a small area of a receding Hair line grow back.
Also handy for Battery Water.
