    If you bothered to actually read the article, you'd see that they were going to simply send a camera down the well. I'm certain they also have equipment that can retrieve any remains found, if they are. If the killers were able to get the bodies down the well, I'm sure the authorities will be able to get them up. But thanks for the shoring lesson. Lastly, if you were the victims parents, wouldn't you want closure?

    The engineers digging to find the remains of victims of the Speed Freak Killers are down 200' and cannot find anything but water, which they claim will take days to pump out. Could it be possable that they have hit an aquifer and will never be able to pump the water out? Since the first dig revealed all that was necessary was at a depth of 50', now at 200' nothing has been reveiled. Even if some evidence was found, the thought of digging 200' would need special equipment to allow workers access to that depth. One possable way is to construct a ring of steel shoring to surround the well simillar to the way bridge structures are constructed in water. After the shoring and cross shoring is in place a special digging machine that can dig verticle can be used to dig to the required depth and even allowing workers access to the bottom of the well. Very costly though. The main question is, is it worth the time and cost. I would think the families have suffered enough pain, only to go through it again.
