Lost Boys Leave Town Heartbroken
During a breezy night in 1856, three poor boys wanting to have innocent fun in the river are said to have drowned. We interviewed Aunt Polly, in which she painted the portrait of a hardworking, angel of a boy, whose name was Tom Sawyer. Another boy who drowned was Joe Harper, whose grieving mother is not taking questions at the moment. The third boy's name is Huck Finn, who we do not have much information about. We have many scandalous pictures of Becky Thatcher holding hands with victim, Tom Sawyer. She has refused to answer our questions and has not responded to our visits or calls. Did Tom upset her to the point of murder? Can she be trusted? Investigators are looking into this case further, but for now, the case is deemed an accident.
