Father: Bully may be to blame in drowning

April 27, 2010 (INDIANAPOLIS)

Five-year-old Chesney Allen was found dead last week in a retention pond in a residential area of Indianapolis. Her father says his 9-year-old son talked to a boy in the subdivision this past weekend who bragged and smiled about knowing who "killed" Chesney.

They describe that boy as a known bully.

"I want them to find this boy. I don't want the parents to know who it is from what I say and get a chance to run or whatever," said Mike Allen, father.

Police and the Marion County coroner's office are now investigating the allegation of foul play, despite the lack of physical evidence.
