The draining of Echo Park Lake has not turned up any bodies but it has so far revealed a pair of guns, which are shown above in a photo displayed tonight during an update of the lake rehabilitation project. It’s not clear how long the rusty weapons had been in the lake but people involved in the lake clean up assume the rifle at top by might a World War II-era firearm while the gun at the bottom is believed to be a Saturday night special. Any gun experts care to weigh in?
The weapons were a small part of the relatively mundane objects – ranging from a toilet bowl to hundreds of glass bottles – that have been found at the bottom of the lake. Officials tonight said the water quality improvement project is on track to be finished in May 2013.
