Missing Milwaukee boys tragedy: Perhaps a terrible accident and not a crime?

    The decomposed bodies of two fully dressed boys in a park lagoon might well be the bodies of the two young boys reported missing a month ago.

    On account of the bodies being fully dressed, and found at the bottom of a pool rather than, say, buried, indicates to me at least that this awful tragedy might be the result of an accident rather than a heinous crime:

    The scenario that one of the boys misstepped and fell into the lagoon, and the other boy wanting to help his panicked friend up again, with him getting dragged out as well, can perhaps explain the tragedy.
    (Too little is released yet)

    At least, I hope for the relatives' sake that this is, indeed, the case, so that they are spared the anguish of knowing that some monster murdered their loved ones.

    It is a small consolation, but at least they went relatively quickly, and were not held and tortured by some sicko sociopath or sex offender. Their loved ones must have been fearing the worst, at least some of the time.

    Perhaps they can find some comfort in that one of them showed bravery and perhaps tried to help his friend, even though the result was disastrous for both them.

    At least, it seems that their families finally find some closure to this awful incident.
