Yesterday was a very sad day. In the news there was a 16–year old student beaten in the bathroom and was killed. Attached is a new report from the Delaware online News Journal.
A 16-year-old student has died after she was assaulted at Howard High School of Technology Thursday morning, Wilmington police said.
Friends and sources close to the investigation identified her as Amy Inita Joyner-Francis, a sophomore at the high school.
Detectives from the homicide and violent crimes unit were interviewing multiple students who were considered persons of interest in the assault, according to a source close to the investigation. Two female students were taken to police headquarters for further questioning, police Chief Bobby Cummings said. Police said they do not believe anyone outside the school was involved.
"My heart bleeds for the family," said Mayor Dennis Williams at a press conference at the high school Thursday. "Things like this shouldn't happen."
Officers were called at about 8:18 a.m. to the high school in the 400 block of East 12th Street, police said. High School Principal Stanley Spoor said the assault of the 10th-grader from New Castle occurred in the women's bathroom as classes were starting. Further details on the assault were not released by police.
What is the world coming to, are kids are not safe in school. Go to school to be killed instead of learning. My heart and prayers go out the families and the community. Safe Schools is the topic to add this week.
Psalm 23:1-4 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 127:3New International Version (NIV)
Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
