(Newser) – Osama bin Laden may be sleeping with the fishes, but he's a wanted man still: A California diver Fox News describes as "eccentric" is going to scour the Arabian Sea until he finds—and photographs—the corpse of the notorious terrorist. For the bargain price of $400,000, 59-year-old Bill Warren is going to rent a ship and a remote-controlled submarine for two weeks next month. "I'm doing it because I am a patriotic American who wants to know the truth. I do it for the world," Warren says.

"The Obama administration should have released the photo, like we did with Billy the Kid, or [John] Dillinger, or even Saddam Hussein," Warren tells the New York Post. "I have a Russian girlfriend, and she tells me that over there, in intelligence circles, they don't believe bin Laden's really dead."
