Back in spring of 1964 eight-year-old Tommy McGrath had drowned in one of the drainpipes that ran under the Esker. Some folks say it was murder; I guess that is always up to debate. Eleven years later, tragedy had struck again at the Esker: ten-year-old Adam Bertholdi disappearing in front of thirty parents at kids little league baseball game at Julia Road Park. While playing right field, Adam bent down in the high grass in deep right field to retrieve a baseball. The child never stood up from the high grass. Not even a scream to suggest foul play just gone. All signs of the missing child led to the storm drains under the Esker. A search of the massive storm drains under the Esker by Park Ranger Ryan Gallagher and Firefighter Paul Tobin led to an attack in the drains by some sort of creature. The Park Ranger was injured but was all right after the attack by fighting back in the darkness of the storm drains with something that he could only describe as something very large covered in seaweed.
