  • Can we just delete this thread since the article was published three years ago?

    Thomas got the wrong article, but there was a drowning yesterday at 92nd and there was something big trolling around.

    Of course, there's a whole other thread about this now, so what evs.

  • it wasn't so much a drowning as more of a suicide, a guy swam out to sea and left his stuff and a note under the boardwalk at 116 ...looks like they may found his body near Seagirt couple days ago...terrible story, his girlfreind had commited suicide a week prior.
    RIP

    Mystery Remains In Beach Disappearance Of Artist
    Blake's Body Still Missing, Blogs Hint At A Hoax
    By Howard Schwach


    Police and Fire Department divers prepare to go into the water as a police launch waits off shore. 
     
    Police and fire officials have called off the search for Jeremy Blake, 36, of Manhattan, a noted artist whose clothing and identification were found along with what has been called a "hand-written suicide note" on the *far western LI* beachfront on the evening of July 16.

    As reported in last week's Wave, two local residents saw a man take off his clothing and walk into the water. When he did not come out, they became concerned and called the 911 emergency system, sparking a response that included helicopters and scuba divers searching the water for nearly three days.

    Based on a review of the identification cards and other items found on the beach, including the note, police presume that the man who entered the water was Blake.

    Friends reported Blake as "despondent" over the death of his long-time companion, Theresa Duncan, 40, who was found dead two weeks ago in the East Village apartment they shared. Publish- ed reports say that a bottle of pills and alcohol were found near Duncan's body and that she left a suicide note saying that she was at peace with her decision and that she loved Blake and her family deeply.

    Blake reportedly found Duncan's body in their apartment. They had been together for 12 years, according to sources.

    The couple had moved to Manhattan from Los Angeles last February to work on new projects.

    Duncan, a filmmaker, writer and author of the popular blog, "The Wit of the Staircase," posted her last message on her blog the day before she died.

    Blake was a highly-regarded digital animator. His work has appeared in three Whitney Biennials and is in the permanent collection of both the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. In addition, he worked on Adam Sandler's movie, "Punch-Drunk Love."

    He is known in the art world for photographs and DVD's that mix visual narrative with abstract forms.

    He was to open a new show at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in the fall.

    A police source told the Daily News that Blake's suicide note, found on top of his folded clothing on Beach 108 Street, said that he could "not imagine ever living without [Duncan]."

    Lance Kinz, whose Chelsea gallery represented Blake's work, said that the double suicide was "unexpected."

    "It was a double shock," he told Daily News reporter Larry Celona. "This is an extraordinarily sad story. He couldn't go on without her, so he decided to be with her, so to speak."

    Some friends, however, indicated in print and on the Web that they did not believe that the two had committed suicide.

    Blake Robin, a long-time friend of the couple, said, "suicide was not in their agenda, not on their to-do list."

    "The narrative of the wallet and the clothing under the boardwalk, it's like somebody writing a cliché. It's not them. It would be an embarrassment to them," Robin wrote.

    Marshall Sponder, who writes the "ArtNYC" blog was stronger in his disbelief at the story of Blake's suicide.

    "Something does not add up," he wrote recently. "My intuition is that some vital part of the story is missing here. You watch enough detective stories and you know that anything is possible. I hope that the police find the truth, because maybe it wasn't suicide."

    Ron Rosenbaum, writing on his own blog, said, "The fact that a woman called in the report is important. Perhaps he parked his car, left his clothes, wallet and note and then faked his suicide. He disappeared and he could have done that for any number of reasons. Enter the ex-girlfriend, who could have been the one who made the call."

    Police sources, however, say that they are satisfied that it was Blake who entered the water on July 16 and that his probable death was a case of suicide.

    Those sources say, however, that a body lost off the beach in *far western LI* usually surfaces within a short period of time.

    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

    Having been in the area for more than a couple weeks, this is the most important line in the report.  I have been around for many of these situations.  I don't recall a drowning in which the body not appear within a week to ten days.  They rarely appear in the area that they disappeared but the do appear.

    The shark never consumes everything.  Something would wash up on the beach.
