    Somebody on FB said they run the fountain year round, but not sure I believe it. Can that be done in an area that gets so cold?

    Personally I'd prefer that they treat it as a crime scene until they determine otherwise. Rather LE act that way than the other (ie no discernable evidence can be found due to area having been accessed by all and sundry).

    IMO there's something not being said (at this time) - something doesn't sit right with me but I can't put my finger on it.

    :rose: RIP David, another young soul gone far to early :rose:

    They said a specialty dog, so my thought is it was a cadaver dog:(

    His body was found in the pump of the fountain? Can someone explain how that is possible?

    This is just so sad for the family to have lost this beautiful boy, especially the brother if little David did leave the house secondary to an argument. And unless/until it is proven otherwise, they are nothing but innocent victims of a horrible accidental tragedy in all of this.

    Having said that - as I said before, I am glad to see that LE is treating this as a crime until it can be ruled out. (Boulder PD, are you taking notes?)

    The pump takes in water from the pond to push it up. Therefore, water (and anything in the pond) moves toward the pump.

    I'm so terrified of water I wouldn't even walk on the sidewalk around that pond in the winter, for fear of it being slippery with ice. I've had terrifying experiences with water....lesson learned. It's just so awful how frequently it happens that wandering kids end up being found in water. :(

    I am heartbroken for David's loved ones. As time passed we all knew the likelihood that this was going to end as a recovery but it doesn't make this news any easier to take.

    Colorado can be freezing one day and warm the next day. We do not have winters like the north does. We get a crap load of snow and it melts w/in days due to the intensity of the sun. Grant it, I live a thousand feet higher than Aurora at this time...but that is how our winters are. I lived in Alaska for a number of years, so maybe I am a bit biased on coldness/winter here.....lol

    I have driven by that park many times and visited it a number of times - although years ago - and have seen kids playing in that pond when I would take my kid there. I am not sure if it is 'allowed' but I have seen it....ya know how kids are.

    I figured they were. Almost every pond I know with a fountain runs through the winter.

    Yes. We have over 300 days of sunshine a year. It does get really cold here but in my experience, only for a few days at a time. The sun usually melts any snow and ice within a couple of days, unless it's a blizzard or something.

    Average winter temps in Aurora would be in the 30's most days. Totally warm enough. People assume Colorado = frigid ice cold mountains and it isn't that at all. Most of us live on the front range which is flat land. Aurora is one of the last metro areas to the east before it turns into sparsely inhabited flatland prairie. It gets windy and really cold some days, but usually the sun is shining (they say 300 days of sunshine in CO), and that makes everything perfectly great

    I agree. I think this was a tragic accident. I can't imagine what this poor mother is going through.

    Someone mentioned something about it above and I was answering them based on what I heard in the presser but I might've forgotten to quote them. I still learning my way around here.

    Hmm, well an autopsy will solve that question.

    Damn it, this isn't surprising but it sure is frustrating!
