Comfrey boy death update 03 Aug 18

Comfrey police are still trying to figure out how a 9-year-old Comfrey boy died on a playground Wednesday afternoon.  Police say Gavin Ludewig was found tangled in a swing near a playground behind his house.  He was transported to Springfield Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.  No other details have been released.  A memorial account has been established at SouthPoint Financial Credit Union in Sleepy Eye where his mother works.  If anyone wants to donate, they can do so at any SouthPoint Financial Credit Union branch either in person or by mail.  Comfrey and Springfield Public Schools are offering counseling for anyone that new Ludewig.  Police say foul play is not suspected but because the death was unwitnessed, it must be investigated.
