Who stole this dead fisherman's remains from a car at the bar? - Miami Herald

Monday, February 06, 2017

The Grasshopper was such a presence on Biscayne Bay that local anglers referred to the spot on the oceanside of Old Rhodes Key as “Curtis Point.”This is where family and friends planned to scatter Curtis’ ashes, from the Grasshopper, in early December. Bad weather delayed that outing and George Bacon, who is married to Curtis’ daughter Nancy Curtis Bacon, said they were to try again in April.“You know, Bill was somewhat of a character,” Bacon said. “We left his ashes in his house in front of the TV by his lawn chair. Was appropriate. But with the house on the market we knew people wanted to come in and we didn’t think that was appropriate so Dennis said he will take custody of the ashes and we’d go in April. Bill was riding in the front seat next to Dennis and got hijacked.”The box containing Curtis’ ashes had a light chocolate-brown lid, black leather-like bottom, quilted look, Bacon said. The family believes the name of the funeral home was on the inside of the box: Strickland Funeral Home and Crematory of Crystal River.There were no family feuds to explain the theft of ashes, Bacon and Dara said. “Either they got spooked or I was walking up on them,” Dara said. “I stayed out all night long looking in every dumpster and garbage can all the way to my house in Coral Gables. I can’t believe it.”Bacon added: “I’m a strong Christian. Not sure I believe in karma but can you imagine all the evil energy with all his friends focused on whoever that is who stole Bill’s ashes? They’ve got to be living in a karmic hell.”Miami police are investigating. The family asks anyone with information to call Dara at 786-355-0258 or Bacon at 352-563-7721.

Monday, August 29, 2016

The Oceanside Fire Department is mourning the sudden loss of Fireman Keith Lane, who died last Saturday night from natural causes.Lane came from East Rockaway. He served in the East Rockaway Fire Department for 10 years, and was an Ex-Captain before joining Oceanside, where he served for 23 years.Lane was also a cameraman for Fox 5 TV in New York.“No one will ever know or appreciate the love Keith had for the fire service,” said JT Madden, Oceanside Fire Chief. “He did more behind the scenes to help promote the volunteer fire service and he always did so without looking for any credit and that’s really who Keith was.

The haunted steakhouse and taller Oceanside tales - San Diego Reader

Monday, August 22, 2016

There are several stories that have been circulating around Oceanside for decades. Unfortunately, it's now been revealed that most are not true. Yet, there is that one about the Hunter Steakhouse being haunted... That one may be true.Kristi Hawthorne, vice president of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce, set out to investigate seven well-known stories from her town’s past. She was able to prove six as not true — urban legends or myths that never happened.Hunter Steakhouse’s haunted story may be one of the true ones, if you believe in spooky stuff. When I-5 was built in the early 1960s, the city’s very old Buena Vista Cemetery, overlooking the lagoon, was rediscovered. The cemetery, used between 1888 and 1916, had an estimated 50 bodies buried there.“In January of 1970, 17 bodies were disinterred and removed to the El Camino Memorial Park in Sorrento Valley,” reports Hawthorne. Family members also removed some remains. “That left several remains behind.”The property’s developer uncovered more remains — and reportedly covered them up, literally an...
