YouTube fishing personalities Jiggin' with Jordan and DALLMYD may have something here.
YouTube fishermen DALLMYD and Jiggin' with Jordan have really grown their channels the past few years. They've done so through fishing videos, as well as river and urban exploration. Sometimes they even combine the two. Jake and Brandon have done a lot to clean trash out of their local rivers, and they find some pretty interesting stuff on their adventures.
This time, they may have just helped solve a crime after finding a long-lost handgun while exploring a shallow urban canal.
You just never know what you're going to find while out on an outdoor adventure like this. It definitely seems likely someone used this handgun in a crime and hastily ditched it in the canal.
It's hard to tell with the gunk covering the gun, but it looks to be a Luger LCR revolver. It's an amazing coincidence the officer who responded worked on a shooting case where the gun was never found right in the immediate vicinity.
Brandon and Jake promise to give their viewers an update when they learn more. Let's hope if this gun was used in a crime, it's the break investigators need to solve the case.
