WESTBOROUGH - A severely autistic 4-year-old boy who drowned in a murky pool at his apartment complex Sunday had been seen walking alone around the spacious facility, authorities said.

“We were told by maintenance crews at the complex that this child had been on his own wandering around before,’’ Alan Gordon, Westborough’s police chief, said in a telephone interview Monday.
