At the beginning there was said to be a spirit maybe the spirit got angry at drove the men to suicide and the reason that their bodies never got found was because they tied something heavy to them and they drown.

I gotta say, if ever I had the opportunity to ask God a question, it would be what happened to these three lighthouse men. This story has just always been one that has fascinated and puzzled me. I really wish I had a fully fleshed out and detailed explanation that covered all the bases and tied up all the ends. Ya know?

Shane should check out the Rose Island Lighthouse. It’s a lighthouse near Newport, RI, that you can stay at and do the upkeep on the lighthouse during your stay there

RJ Robertson-DeGraaff
Did anyone ever ask the gamekeeper if he saw storms? Surely, if massive storms or excessively large waves did strike locally, he is one person who could corroborate that. If he didn't see any storms or waves then it gives more validity to the "they went mad" theory.

reido82 3 hours ago
I think it's pretty obvious when you eliminate anything silly, the most logical albeit boring is one of the men got swept out to sea and the others tried to save him and suffered the same fate. Dull, but the most likely.
