Description: 

After dragging Houston's body for "better than a mile" along "an old logging road, choked with undergrowth and almost indistinguishable now, about two feet below the flat level" of the creek bottom, Mink Snopes tries to hide it a second time in "the shell of a once-tremendous pin oak [tree], topless and about ten feet tall" (249-50). Nearby are both the "slough" into which he throws his gun (257) and the water, called both a "river" and a "stream" (281), into which he throws Houston's body - or most of it.
