Terrible News

The body of Ra Ra Riot's drummer, John Pike, has been found. This news is beyond horrible. I was waiting all day for an email blast saying that he was found alive and well. My thoughts are with John's family, friends, and bandmates. Via Steve:

FAIRHAVEN — A police dive team today located what is believed to be the body of John Pike, a 23-year-old Hamilton man who has been missing since early Saturday.

The body was found about 4:10 p.m. off Wilbur’s Point in Buzzards Bay. The body was found in about 7 feet of water approximately 150 to 200 yards from where his cell phone was found.

Fire Chief Tim Francis said the clothing on the body matches what Mr. Pike was wearing when he was last seen Saturday about 3 a.m.

“It’s pretty clear it’s him,” Chief Francis said.

Mr. Pike is a 2006 magna cum laude graduate of Syracuse University, according to his aunt, Colleen Stone of Centerville.

“He’s the pride and joy of our family,” she said.
