Diver removes fake skeletons from Colorado River as revenge

A diver who felt he didn’t get his fair share of the credit for discovering two fake skeletons in lawn chairs at the bottom of the Colorado River has removed them from their watery grave.

Martin Sholl tells Today’s News-Herald he spotted the skeletons, adorned in sunglasses, flip-flops, a bikini and a rainbow-colored wig, tethered to lawn chairs near Parker this May.

Sholl says he was upset that stories failed to mention him by name and instead focused on a La Paz County sheriff’s official. Sholl says he pulled the pair from the river on Friday and put them on his balcony in Parker.

He says he will return the skeletons after Halloween.
