Cities paparazzi who had been stalking Larson took these exclusive Scallion's time exposed pictures of this tragic event.
Notified by authorities of the bleak situation, Larson's wife of 67 years, Luella was quoted as saying, "Yah, I knew something bad had happened when he didn't show up for his three o'clock coco.

When asked about Larson's overall physical condition at the age of 91, Mrs. Larson replied like a stern Scandinavian, "Yah, he went to the exercise club daily doing Yoga, yah. Strong as a bull he was".
