  • Details of Disappearance
    Daniel left his north Minneapolis home with two of his brothers, David and Kenneth, to go play in nearby Fairview Park at Lyndale & 29th in Minneapolis. Their big brother, Gordy, who was 9 at the time, was going to join them. He went to the park but could not find them. The boys were never seen again.

    Police tracking dogs lost the trail of the boys on Colfax Avenue.

    A few days after the search had begun it was called off. Two of the boys' caps had been found in the Mississippi river. Their bodies, police decided, had floated downriver or had been buried in silt.
