In Oklahoma, state police testing out new sonar on a lake found six decades-old skeletons in two cars.
The remains were identified as those of three teens missing since 1970 and three men missing since the early 1960s.
The bodies were found Tuesday as police practiced using the sonar on Foss Lake in Custer County. They detected two cars and figured they would be newer vehicles that were recently stolen.
Instead, they found a 1969 Camaro, a 1950 Chevy and — after pulling the rusted hulks out of the water — bones.
The remains found in the Camaro are thought to be those of Jimmy Williams, 16 at the time of his death, Thomas Michael Rios, 18, and Leah Gail Johnson, 18. Williams, who bought the car by working at a grocery store, was thought to be driving his friends from his hometown of Sayre to a football game in nearby Elk City on Nov. 20, 1970. Police at the time said the trio “disappeared into thin air.”
The skeletons found in the older vehicle have not been identified, but may be those of three people missing from Washita County since the early 1960s.
What lies beneath Georgia’s biggest lakes? Due to the forest of trees lining the bottom of man-made lakes Lanier and Allatoona, there’s no telling.
