The mys­tery of the cod­fish medal­lion solved

The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

It ap­pears the mys­tery of the medal­lion found in a cod­fish in For­tune Bay last Au­gust has been solved.

Sev­eral read­ers con­tacted ‘ The South­ern Gazette’ last week iden­ti­fy­ing the ob­ject as a col­lectible item in­cluded when pur­chas­ing the re­tail box ver­sion for the on­line role play­ing videogame ‘EverQuest: Lost Dun­geons of Nor­rath’ re­leased in 2003.

The medal­lion, which in this case was at­tached to a string to form a neck­lace, was orig­i­nally part of a key­chain that in­cluded the ‘EverQuest’ logo.

It was dis­cov­ered in the mouth of a cod­fish off Har­bour Mille Cape, dur­ing last year’s recre­ational fish­ery.

Luke Myles, 13, was vis­it­ing from Grand Prairie, Al­berta, last year and went on the fish­ing ex­pe­di­tion with his grand­fa­ther Guy Hack­ett, of English Har­bour East, in Peter Clarke’s boat last Au­gust when the medal­lion was ound.

The boy had tried nu­mer­ous av­enues to iden­tify the ob­ject over the past year with­out any luck. Back again for an­other visit, he and his grand­fa­ther stopped by The Gazette’s of­fice in Marys­town ear­lier this month.
