I was commuting home late afternoon around ~4pm 4/26 Monday on the Keelung River bike path near the Yuanshan Riverside Park/圓山河濱公園 and I rode past two or three policemen/women taking photos of a dead body; purple, bloated but face down. I’m guessing I rode past not long after they fished the poor fella out since they hadn’t blocked out the area. A few joggers/cyclists like me stopped on either side at a respectable distance to discuss wtf was going on.
I’ve been looking in the news since Monday night but haven’t come across any mention of this… Has anyone seen anything in the media?
My first year year living in Taipei I’ve seen 2 dead bodies on riverside.
First one was fire service and Police fishing one out of Xindian river close to Jonghe, second time I was second one on scene young man had jumped off Taipei bridge head first concrete slab part,Tamsui riverside. Police had been called and turned up on scooters and quickly covered body.
No news of either one! Suicide is kept hush hush here I suspect?
They’re in the news a lot in South Africa. It’s a uniquely SA phenomenon that when a bloke’s going to blow his face off, he takes out his wife and kids, too, so that they can all be together happily in the afterlife. Or because he can’t bear the thought of another bloke banging his wife and adopting his kids.
