Set in early-mid 20th century. Man (janitor of some sort) is found dead in lake, autopsy / main character reveals he drowned in pool while hanging out with some students. There was chlorine in lungs. This was revealed at the very beginning of the book, but I don't think I finished the book so I don't know the rest of the plot. Coming of age story, main character is a boy in his teens.

When would have read this? (A rough year can help focus the search.)
