Danbury Police are investigating the death of a 16-year-old girl, in a jump from the Danbury Mall parking garage Saturday afternoon. The girl's name is not being released at this time and the Special Victims Unit is investigating.
The Danbury School District is mourning the untimely passing of the High School student, and looking into inappropriate comments made about the death. Superintendent Dr. Sal Pascarella says an individual posted inappropriate information regarding the deceased online. The principal is working with authorities to have it removed.
Pascarella says this is a difficult time and their thoughts and prayers are with the family. Danbury High School will have counselors and support staff on hand for any student in need.
He recommended to parents that if a child viewed the postings, to have a discussion with them. Any parent who feels their child may be having difficulties is asked to contact their school principal, counselor or social worker for support.
