Reality Bites

This afternoon I encountered a police blockade on the embarcadero while I was riding my bike home from school. A portion of the embarcadero had been taped off and a bunch of police officers and cruisers were congregating on land, while two Harbor Police boats tended to the scene in the bay down below. I was diverted into the street and when I got around the crime scene and back onto the embarcadero, I could see a scuba diver in search of something in the water. Down on the dock, an officer was questioning our neighbor Kyle. When they came up the dock, Kyle told me he found the body of a dead woman on the rocks when he was rowing home this afternoon. Pretty heavy stuff. So far, I haven't been able to find any information about who she was or how she may have ended up there.
