GREENCASTLE, Ind. Nov. 11 - Coroner Gillesple is today investigating the death of 2-year-old Cecil Slavens, son of Charles Slavens, who was found drowned in a stream of water less than eight inches in depth. The child and his pet dog had wandered away from home about one hour before the body was found. The barking of the dog first notified the child's parents that an accident had occurred.
