New York, May 11.--The body of year-old Willie McCormick, who disappeared disappeared from his home at Highbridge six weeks ago, was found yesterday floating on the surface of Cromwell's creek, not far from the McCormick home. The father and sister of the boy identified the body. Police Captain Captain Titus, in an interview last night, said: "At the present time I am of the opinion the boy's death was the of an accident. There were no marks of violence on the body, as probably would have been the case had the met with foul play. Then, too, if one had thrown the body into the creek he would have first weighted so that it would have remained the surface of the water. My theory is that the boy had been playing on the dock and fell into the water, and there was no one there to or give an alarm." The parents of the boy and Father Mullin, of the Church of the Sacred Heart of Highbridge, who was taken an active interest in the case, said today that they had abandoned the of foul play, and they believe the was accidentally drowned.
