2 NJ best friends, 10 and 11, found dead in river
Monday - 8/6/2012, 10:04pm EDT
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Two New Jersey boys who said they were going to a park and didn't return home have been found dead in a river.
New Brunswick police Capt. J.T. Miller says the body of 10-year-old Francisco Perera was found Monday afternoon near the base of a bridge in Highland Park. The body of 11-year-old Devine Nicholas was found nearby hours later.
It's unclear what caused their deaths. But Devine's mother, Carol Leonard, says he couldn't swim. Officials say there's no evidence of foul play.
The best friends last were seen by relatives Sunday evening. They were the subjects of an intense search.
Franklin Township resident Jennifer Smakolski says she saw them in the Raritan River up to their ankles Sunday night and they told her they could swim. She tells Newark's The Star-Ledger newspaper she'll be "thinking about this forever."
