Lowndes County investigators now say they don't believe foul play was involved in the death of a Lowndes High School student whose body was found in the school's old gym this morning. They initially said this was a homicide investigation. Investigators refuse to identify the victim or explain how they believe he died. The Sheriff's Office released the following statement tonight.
"We are deeply saddened that the body of a Lowndes High student was discovered today on the LHS campus," said Superintendent Wes Taylor. "Our hearts are burdened for the family, friends, students, staff, and our community."
The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and emergency medical personnel were immediately called to the scene.
Under the supervision of Sheriff Chris Prine, the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office is leading the investigation with the assistance of the GBI. The investigative team remained on the scene for several hours collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses.
Although the exact cause of death is yet to be determined, as of this stage of the investigation, nothing has been discovered to indicate foul play was involved, according to Sheriff Prine. An autopsy will be conducted on Monday by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation medical examiner's office to attempt to determine an exact cause of death.
"We are confident that the campus of Lowndes High School is safe for the return of students on Monday," said Sheriff Prine.
The Lowndes County Schools—in cooperation with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and in consideration of the family—will not be releasing the name of the deceased at this time.
