"Holy Fuck" doesn't even begin to cover it.

[full article here]
In an incident on Sunday morning, a city employee found the partially submerged, clothed body of a woman in the channel between Lake of the Isles and Lake Calhoun.

Police are investigating the death as suspicious, but there is no indication of foul play at this time. The body, which has not been identified, was discovered about 10 a.m.

Um, yeah. That's about a block and a half away from my apartment.

**Also, I fucking hate the news sometimes. What the unholy fuck is "an incident"? Could we possibly be any more vague? Why is this language necessary? I was taught to write as if you're telling the story to your mother/grandmother. It's like they lifted this from the police report, and just published it as it was. I realize that's standard operating procedure, but it's pathetic. People don't want to read or hear that shit. It doesn't mean anything, and for all it isn't worth, it'd be better if they didn't say anything at all.
