  • Case History

    The body of the young boy was found floating in the O'Laughlin Quarry (now Waukesha Lime and Stone). He had been struck in the head before being thrown into the water.

    About five weeks before the body was found, a man and woman in an automobile stopped and asked an employee of the quarry if anyone had seen a young boy. The woman was crying and wearing a red coat. The couple was never heard from again.

    He was laid out for viewing in the funeral home and a $1000 reward was offered in efforts to identify him.

    The boy was dubbed "Little Lord Fauntleroy" and was laid to rest in the Prairie Home Cemetery.

    Police investigated whether the body was that of Homer Lemay. Lemay's father stated that the child had been killed in a car accident after being taken to South America by acquantances who had adopted him. Investigators could find no record of Homer Lemay being killed in South America.
