Jason Voorhees, you know the creep with the hockey mask and machete from the Friday The 13th movies, gets chained to the bottom of Crystal Lake in the 6th movie.  

And, we $h!t you not, you can actually see this in Crosby Minnesota:


You have to dive 120 feet down in Crystal Lake, which obviously requires diving gear, to see this statue that was planted in 2014.  Below is the original Youtube video posted by Curtis Lahr, who urges people to read the description, which states:

A Jason statue built and planted in 120' of water at one of Minnesota's popular dive sites.  Jason is a fictional character, there is no such thing as a 'real' Jason.  This is simply a statue of the character.  To comment this video is 'fake'  implies you believe he is a real person.   Like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, he doesn't exist.


If you're a diver and curious about someday seeing this, here's the exact location according the video poster Curtis:

He's in Louise.  Very easy to find if you know the pit.  Swim straight out from the access to the training platform, continue past it staying to the right and follow the drop off ledge, on the way you should see a snowmobile , and eventually a sail boat with a dingy behind it will show up on your left. Your computer should say ~60'.   From there keep on the drop off ledge and you'll see Marissa the mermaid chained to a large diameter pipe. Follow the pipe down and you'll see Jason.  Can't remember the exact depth, I think the bottom is 120' but Jason is floating above the bottom a bit, maybe 110' or so.    Visibility hasn't been very good so I would recommend a light.

(You're welcome...)

If you scroll through some of the comments on Youtube, they're pretty entertaining, like this one from Bertha Villarreal:

that was fake Jason has doesn't have googly eyes

Still creepy though Bertha...

And, then there is this thought-provoking comment from Doug Klein:

Wow! That thing is so lifelike I wonder if they killed a bum and dressed him like Jason and sunk him.....scary real

Well Doug, most dead bodies:

"...Sink as soon as the air in its lungs is replaced with water. Once submerged, the body stays underwater until the bacteria in the gut and chest cavity produce enough gas—methane, hydrogen sulfide, and carbon dioxide—to float it to the surface..."

Now, the interesting thing is, according to Science Focus:

Cold water also encourages the formation of adipocere... a waxy, soapy substance formed from the fat in the body that partially protects the body against decomposition. Bodies have been retrieved almost completely intact from waters below 7°C (~44°F) after several weeks, and as recognisable skeletons after five years.

So it is possible a body could stay down there and not decompose, but if it were real, it'd probably be a skeleton at this point.

Would you go see it?
