In spite of the best efforts of murderers to hide the evidence of their crime, dead bodies have a way of popping up.  One of the most popular means of disposing of a body seems to be concealing it in new construction.   Concrete slabs, foundations or patios are especially popular.  Murderers, according to a law enforcement friend of mine, often prefer to keep the evidence where they can exercise some control or surveillance, for example on property owned by themselves or family.

From the Los Angeles Times comes this article: Body found buried in concrete in Santa Fe Springs; man arrested

A man's body has been found in newly poured concrete inside a Santa Fe Springs business and a homicide suspect arrested following what authorities believe was a feud between the pair, police said Monday.
Here's the nice thing about concrete.  It serves two important functions.  One, it actually preserves the evidence, protecting the corpse from oxygen and the environment.  Two, it presents a tangible, physical connection between the victim and the perpretrator, especially when the construction site in question is owned by the perpetrator.  Wouldn't that be something?

A mere six months before Jack Gordon died John Busby (aka John Robert Fureigh) made a comment on his own blog alluding to the possibility of disposing of a body in his septic tank (more about this in an upcoming post).  He may or may not have been joking.  We know from video posted on-line by John Busby (aka John Robert Fureigh, aka "Mtn Tracker") that he did not use a poured concrete slab or foundation in the construction of his cheaply-built house on Luke Road (more on that in a future post).  Instead, he demonstrated his technique of suspending his house on pre-formed concrete footers spaced several feet apart.  It turns out that there was another house built by John Busby (aka John Robert Fureigh) during the year following Jack Gordon's death.  I don't know if this is merely a coincidence or if there might be a connection.  Perhaps time will tell the tale.
