Two treasure hunters made a gruesome discovery today when they stumbled upon, what appears to be, a mass underwater grave off the Florida coast.

Was a serial killer, for it has been nearly forty days since he was forced to slit his brother Rudi’s throat, and, despite his best efforts, he can’t bring himself to kill anyone.
