Notes
Three brothers (Kenneth, David, and Daniel) headed out to play at the local Fairview Park. They were supposed to meet their older brother Gordy (9) but when he arrived, there was no sign of his three brothers. K-9 units tracked them as far as Colfax Avenue and two of their hats were later found in the Mississippi River. Police believe their bodies were in the river, though whether it was an accident or as a result of foul play is not known.
