— The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office pulled human remains from the Cape Fear River Friday after some fishermen reported seeing a pickup truck hit the water.

The fishermen told authorities that they heard a splash and saw the truck float by as they fished from a bridge, Maj. Philip Little said.

Divers found the truck, empty, but their search turned up another vehicle as well.

Little said a car, reported missing from Robeson County in 2001, was found with human remains inside. The identity of the person has not yet been released.

    Someone was probably drunk and ran off the road late at night and drown.

    Probably a dumping ground for the mob. Or maybe there is a little Bermuda Triangle action going on there.
