Officials in the Fulton School District will have numerous counselors at schools on Wednesday morning, as students begin the school year after one of their teachers and a fellow student were murdered.
Fulton Superintendent Ty Crain tells ABC-17 that counselors will be available for students today, all week and as long as they need to. The district also has four social workers on staff.
Boone County Sheriff’s deputies have not made any arrests in the murders of 43-year-old Allison Abitz and her 11-year-old daughter Josie. They were found dead inside their home on Lavender Drive late Sunday night.
Boone County Sheriff’s Captain Brian Leer tells the Eagle that deputies from his department were in neighboring Callaway County Monday night, as part of the investigation. While he could not elaborate, Leer says Callaway deputies assisted Boone County deputies Monday night, in regards to the case.
Captain Leer encourages anyone with information about the case to call Boone County deputies at (573) 442-6131.
