BODIES & DEATHS IN SCOTTISH QUARRIES

I noticed a while ago that there were an awful lot of deaths & or bodies found in quarries in Scotland, so I finally got around to having a wee dig. It is not just Scotland! As can be seen with a mere glance here

But the following are all Scottish & found in the last 20 years (approx)  The latest of which was only a few days ago.

This is not all of them, it’s only what I have found so far..
