Deceased Body Discovered in Canal

On July 28, 2014 at about 2:45 PM a citizen reported to 9-1-1 that they had discovered a body submerged at the bottom of the ACID Canal near Anderson High School. Paramedics responded and determined that the subject was already deceased. Shasta County Search and Rescue Dive Team responded and assisted in the recovery of the body. The body was then turned over to the Shasta County Coroner’s Office. The deceased appeared to be an unknown white male adult.

There were no obvious signs of serious trauma or foul play.

Further information is being held pending identification of the subject.

    Who writes this stuff? “Deceased body,” “…submerged at the bottom… paramedics determined subject was already deceased.” Oh, and the best one: “The deceased appeared to be an unknown white male adult.” I think the Shasta High Volcano has writers with better thought conveyance.

    It at least gave me a chuckle .. . . the writing, not the body . . . or maybe it was the body of writing.

  3. Yeah … we don’t clean up the press releases. We run them as-is. Usually law enforcement does a pretty decent job, but everyone has an off day.

      Wow, Doni. By the posts on this article and some others, it looks like the grammer police have left the RS, guess they couldn’t figure out how to get on the new improved format, and have decided to help you out. Good luck.

    I feel for the family. Very sad event.

    Well, the least you could do is throw a [sic] or two on these things.
