Desperate search ends tragically as 5-year-old found dead in Cass County

On Tuesday, as more than a hundred searchers traipsed through corn fields and over creeks and pasture for more than six hours in rural Cass County, “Gene” Cory-Ferguson, 5, lay dead at the bottom of an algae-covered pond no more than a hundred feet from his house. Many called out to the child, to no avail.
