When criminals toss something into the ocean or even Echo Park Lake, they think it's gone forever, swallowed by the depths. They're wrong.
Filmmaker and USC Annenberg master's student Matt Yoka spoke with the head of the LAPD diving squad. He's the guy that goes in the water and pulls the evidence out.
He hasn't been in Echo Park Lake recently, since the new renovation. The neighborhood has changed, he said. Back in the bad old days, it was a dirty job to enter the lake.
