On August 17, 1932, people used an “old wives tale” to find a boy’s body who drowned in the South Fork of the Sangamon River. They used his undershirt and dropped it into the river in the area where he went in. The shirt went thirty feet down the river and sank. There, the researchers found the boy’s body.
