Mom: How was your day honey? Kid: We found a body during 4th period Mom: WTF?!?!
Louisville Metro Police are conducting a homicide investigation in the 3300 block of E. Indian Trail, behind Liberty High School.
Police say the body of a 14-year-old boy has been found in that area, and that foul play is now expected in the case.
Sources tell WDRB that the teen lived nearby and attended another nearby school — not Liberty High School.
Ben Jackey, a spokesman for Jefferson County Public Schools, says the body was discovered early this afternoon by a group of ten students was walking behind the high school as part of their Humanities class.
“They were freshman. They were in the back of the school doing an activity as part of their lesson and they looked over in a ditch that runs adjacent to the school and they saw what appeared to be a body,” says Lauren Roberts, a spokesperson with Jefferson County Public Schools.
Students immediately notified their teacher and a security officer.
Police say the boy was found face-down, but have little other information to release.
“It is unclear at this time how long he has been there. The coroner will decide. It is not believed that he has been there for an extended period of time,” says Carey Klain with Louisville Metro Police.
Damn, who the hell leaves a body behind a school?!?! We gotta believe that someone wanted this to be found.
