Authorities say that a neighborhood in the Bronx is getting ready to memorialize an 11-year-old kid whose body was sadly discovered in the Hudson River over the weekend after he and a 13-year-old companion went missing earlier this month.
Late last week, the body of the other youngster was discovered in the Harlem River, which connects the Hudson and East Rivers. This discovery was closer to the area where the NYPD had been looking. Garrett Warren was his name, and he resided in Harlem.
The bodies of Warren's family and the family of 11-year-old Alfa Barrie have been found, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. If Barrie and Warren entered the water at the same time and location, how could their bodies have separated that much? Is there a chance of criminal activity? Before, the boys had never left.
Medical Examiners Claim That Warren Drowned And Barrie's Cause of Death Is Still Unclear
According to the medical examiner's office, Warren drowned inadvertently. A manner and cause of death for Barrie are still under investigation, it was stated.
A youngster claimed to have seen Warren and Barrie playing at the water's edge at 145th Street on the night of May 12, the night they vanished, according to law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case. The child who attempted to push the other boy toward the river, according to the witness, caused both boys to fall into the water. After leaving the scene, the young witness later spoke with police.
In order to communicate with their classmates, NYPD officers have been attempting to identify all the other children who were with them.
