Clarence, according to the story told by the elder Fadden, spent part of Thursday afternoon with his two companions wading near the Carnegie dock where, it is thought, he stepped into a deep hole, slipped and was unable to return to shallower water.
According to Fadden, the little chaps ran home too frightened to tell their parents or the Faddens who are their near neighbors. Late Thursday night the police were notified to begin search for little Clarence who at that time was thought to be lost.
After being plied closely with questions, according to Fadden, little O'Brien and Johnson admitted having seen the Fadden boy drown. They said they had made up their minds "not to say anything about it, 'cause the police would get them."
The clothes of the drowned boy were found on the beach. The life saving crew recovered the body. (Duluth News-Tribune, Duluth, Minnesota, July 31, 1915, Page 4, Column 7)
