    We usually find alcohol and drugs leading to a floater in a nearby body of water in these cases. But, contrary to governor Dayton’s wishes, maybe he went home.

    1. The number of college students who end up in water is alarming. It seems really odd that people would decide to walk into water after a night of drinking. BAC levels are spiked high for anyone who is recovered in water. I wonder how much they really had to drink?
