The Roak boys

 

 

Boy play by the river

Line pinecones in a row

A farm and he has seven different animals

Man walks into spring river  water to his waist

Each hand hold a rock

 

It only takes a second and man gone

There is no sign now of man in the river

 

Only boy see man disappear

Nobody else around to see 

 

The next day boy returns to river

He finds a shoe and fill shoe with stones

Each stone an animal but shoe tilts and animals drown

 

Days pass and boys mother finds shoe in boys closet 

Esther Bell tells Mary Mary tells Fred Fred call the police

At noon police arrive ask boy about the shoe

The boy say shoe kept tilting

He takes officer down to the river 

Searching for the place the boy had found the shoe

The police officer see something tangled in bush down the stream

Another shoe size 13 and a blue plaid shirt is found

Roak-boys still missing
