The text reads "I told everyone that she dumped me, but I dumped her (body)", along with a picture taken from Google Maps. It was determined that the location was likely Wooded Island in Chicago, IL. A search was made, though nothing was found
. However, as a commenter on Dianna E. Anderson's blog posting about this
points out, the postmark reads 2008
Frank Warren, founder of PostSecret has said he didn't go to the police, and instead sees this as a free-speech issue.
As Ms. Anderson's blog post is a great read as well about the implications for women reading his original post, and about how, in response to Frank's claim that sharing postcards like this one "reminds women that they are much more likely to be hurt on a date with someone they know than a complete stranger"
that women are very aware and do not need such a "reminder".
Did Frank go too far on posting this one? Is it a hoax? Why did he sit on it for so long without turning it over to the police?
