I heard a rumour there was foul play, he was pulled under by 2 white kids who people claim were "friends" ??
Is anyone checking this out? Strange that some said he was a good swimmer, how come his "friends" didn't drown too?
Whole story seems suspicious, eh?

I pray this is just a rumour and it may have been a true accident. Such sad news.
Summertime can be so much fun for kids and adults, sadly though, so often you hear of drownings when people use poor judgment of how safe they think it is to swim in areas that they are not knowledable of the depth or current of the waters.
