(Victor, N.Y.) -- Adam Falcon, of Victor, Ontario County, was a third-year student at St Lawrence University when he drowned in the Grasse River near the Canton, N.Y. campus in 2004.

At the time, his death was ruled an accident; but, now,

Reported that detectives are investigating the deaths in rivers of 40 young men around the country. Due to the timing of the deaths, they believe a group of serial killers may be responsible.  Most of the deceased men were last seen at or leaving a bar.  They speculate that the men are separated from their friends.  Officials also believe the men's deaths are connected because, in many instances, a smiley face was found drawn near the scene. Two retired New York City detectives now wonder if Falcon was murdered.
