Reporters tried to follow Mr. Santini, but he jumped back on the tightrope and took off across the Falls. A few brave newspaper reporters and one tour guide tired to follow. They only made it half way before falling to their deaths.
Mr. Santini has witnessed over twenty-three crimes as a tightrope walker, including a man who followed him across the rope to rob him of his pocket watch.
Police now know that the couple wasn't Arminian and that they were not the couple known as Mr. and Mrs. Nigel Pettibone.
