    Exclamation OK, You found a dead body in the woods.

    Ok, you find a dead body in the woods or underwater while diving. Would you remove jewelry and wallet? If you call the police as you should, you can't do it from a cell phone or home phone, so how would you notify them? Would it bother you to just leave him or her where they croaked?

    I really wanna go for the Laugh here but someone will take me serious but if it happens , I hope it's either super fresh, Or super old otherwise the Smell would not make me want to return with the police.

    which length there may help me decide too.

    I'm kind of blown away that this question was even asked. A body ? really ? That is someone's son, daughter, parent, etc. I would call the police and report it. I'm still in shock that you list one of the choices as robbing the corpse... I'll be even more shocked if someone says that's what they would do. However nothing much surprises me anymore.

    If I found a body on land and it was past the putrefaction stage or a skeleton and its stacked with gold, strip baby strip, nobody is looking for them at that stage. If its fresh, bloated or starting to decompose. I would cover my tracks (a_ _) and call the cops from a pay phone. We have a lot of jumpers leaping off the bridges around here, maybe one day, I will run across a "Floater".

    * Hopefully, I will never run across that. I have seen way to many "Bloated Fish Faces" in my life, I'd rather not see or smell another.

    You can do like Jeramiah Johnson did and pry his frozen fingers off the Hawkin rifle and take it then leave him in place.

    I would never, ever, ever touch a body or anything associated with it. It is evidence and shouldn't be tampered with. If this was a homicide, you will end up giving statements to the police or even testifying in court concerning how the body was found and your actions after you found it.

    The only thing to do if you can't make a phone call at the site is to mark your location and then go to your car or the closest place you can get to to make the 911 call.

    I found a man I thought was asleep, drunk, or sick. I stopped, had my daughter stay in the car, & I went to him. He was not breathing, so I started cpr. after exhausting myself, I went to my house & called 911. they sent medics & police. He had been out for a walk (on docs orders) & had a heart attack in the driveway of my neighbors property.(Way out in the middle of nowhere. There was nothing to be done, even before I found him he was dead, but I had to try. The words "what would you do" mean nothing unless you are put in that situation. Then it becomes a reality, the "body" becomes a brother, father, son, husband, etc. & you become, hopefully, an honest, caring, human that will do the right thing.

    That is one of my fears, the ring Or jewelry I find detecting is on a body, which I'm not touching!

    IF however I'm in the middle of recovering a target when I spot the body, that has nothing to do with the body I will recover the target and then call PD.

    At that point I only hope Murphy's law doesn't descend on me in full force, and I end up being arrested for possessing Weapons (digging tools) & questioned for the demise. I can just see me and the M6 in hand cuffs in the back of a patrol car! Detecting time...null & void!

    just to make you more paranoid, MsBeepBeep, how do you really ever know that the target you are digging isn't associated with the body you just found. Maybe they struggled, and the Rolex you just dug 15 feet away from the body, went flying......
