Description

Using human sources, detective reports, inspection notes and the autopsy report, reporter Ashley Harrell tells the story of the death of divemaster Zak Jones. An experienced diver with a penchant for using a rebreather rather than a standard Aqua-Lung, Jones died off the coast of Florida, spearfishing with some fellow experienced divers at a depth of 200 feet. The story details the possible ways Jones could have perished, with discussion of his diving equipment and other divers' reaction to finding him floating in the water. Yet, the article also notes the possibility that Jones' diving rig may have been tampered with after his death, thus calling into question the facts of an investigation.
