6 bodies found in submerged cars

Clues to an unsolved disappearance were uncovered this week, when Oklahoma police removed two Chevrolet’s from the bottom of Foss Lake in Custer County – each containing three skeletons inside.

Highway Patrol spotted the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and a 1950′s Chevrolet sedan by accident, while conducting routine sonar equipment testing.

Although the rusted cars were submerged along side one another, investigators believe the cars could be from two unrelated incidents.

Police may now be able to puzzle together the dual mysteries which have baffled the small town community of Sayre for over 40 years.

Local authorities speculate that the Camaro belonged to then-16-year-old Jimmy Williams, who went missing along with friends, Leah Johnson and Thomas Rios, one night in 1970.

Police suggest the second car, a Chevrolet Deluxe Sedan, may have been owned by senior citizen John Albert Porter. He and two others went missing around 1960.

They are now forced to rummage through dusty files in order to make sense of their discovery,  and possibly offer closure to families of the deceased.

For the vintage car enthusiast out there who’s wondering what will happen to the classic Chevy’s – chances are they’ll be stripped and taken apart during the ongoing investigation.
