I think that Walter was dropped off with two siblings to visit a friend. No adult supervision! Not visiting with family! Just dropped off by Mom with a teenage sister to watch two small ones.
Try getting the facts straight. Kid might still be alive if Mom or Dad was supervising but there is much speculation here that kids were dropped off at a neighborhood that had a pool for them to play in unsupervised. They didn't have any relatives in the subdivision.
