And the crash site off Baxter Lane has been at least partially decimated by the removal of many trees from the woods so the owner of the home to the east of the site could build another large residence to the north, or directly behind the house that's right on Baxter. It's the weirdest thing you can imagine, as the view out his window to the north is the high voltage power towers and an empty field with DANGER signs all around. I can't imagine a worse location for building a nice house. Construction has been underway on it for months.
The owner of the property has also built a long curving driveway that passes right through where Jim's remains were found, and just a short distance from "the tree." (The unedited home movie I have of the crash scene -- which I have never shown to anybody -- contains reference points which establish the exact locations of the impact point, etc.)
So what many fans regard as sacred ground has been desecrated. And that is the ONLY way to describe it.
