At about 10:15 a.m., a possible drowning was reported at Franklin Pond, part of Franklin Hot Springs, in the 3000 block of Creston Road in rural Paso Robles. Deputies arrived at the scene and found the man’s body floating in the water.

The county coroner’s unit identified the deceased man as Hugo Diaz De Alva. An autopsy is scheduled for next Tuesday to determine the cause and manner of De Alva’s death.

I used to light my Hot water heater.

“Drowned to death”? As opposed to drowning to some other end result? What ever happened to good editing?

Good editing has been relegated and moved to the Department of Redundancy Department. They have their own rules that they have. People drown to death more often than not.

I certainly hope that we don’t find out or learn this was a murder to death situation.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to those hot springs but I don’t recall them looking like the picture on this article, did they clean it up, a whole lot?

It’s because of the rainfall.

No amount of rain or money could make those ponds look like the lake in the picture.
