Game Warden William Nattkemper and Game Warden William Peare drowned in the Wabash River at Tecumseh, north of Terre Haute, after their boat took on water and capsized.

The two wardens, along with three others wardens, had just investigated the sound of gunshots and were returning upstream when the accident occurred. The other three wardens were able to swim to safety.

Game Warden Nattkemper had served with the Indiana Department of Conservation for five years.
