The boy was a passenger in a car driven by Gundlach, when she backed into the Huron River in Franklin Flats. A seven-year-old girl in the car was rescued. Jaques was not.

Frank Freshwaters was brought back last night, after a Florida judge refused his request to fight extradition. State prison officials will now recalculate his sentence and parole date, based on the amount of time he spent as a fugitive. He’ll also likely face escape charges. Freshwaters was 21 years old when he was convicted of manslaughter, for killing a man in a crash in 1957. He was given a suspended sentence, but was later sent to prison for violating probation. After a few months at the Ohio Reformatory in Mansfield, he was transferred to the Sandusky Honor Farm. He fled from there a short time later, and lived a mostly quiet life in West Virginia and Florida, until he was found earlier this month.
