Seaman District Mourns Former Student Who Took Own Life

(WIBW) - A teenager who tragically took her own life Thursday night was a former Seaman High School student.

Principal Ron Vinduska says counselors were available Friday for those who knew her. He says she came to Seaman High School as a freshman then transferred in February, midway through her sophomore year, to return to a school in Nebraska.

The 17-year old old jumped from a bridge over I-470 Thursday night. The highway was closed several hours while authorities investigated.

13 News is not identifying the victim by name due to her age and the circumstances surrounding her death.
