Police probe possible school incident

BY KAT RUSSELL krussell@paducahsun.com

Kentucky State Police is conducting an investigation involving the Carlisle County school system.

Post 1 Trooper Jody Cash said the investigation started Monday when police received a call over the weekend reporting a possible incident at the school.

Citing the ongoing investigation, Cash said he could not comment on the nature of the incident or who was involved, but West Kentucky Star reported that the incident may have involved a school staff member and a student.

Cash declined to identify which Carlisle County school was involved and would not confirm whether any students or staff members were involved.

"We are still in the fact-finding phase of the investigation," Cash said. "We don't yet fully know the extent of what might have happened and are still trying to figure out what the alleged incident might be."

The trooper also disputed earlier media reports that described a male staff member being escorted by troopers from school grounds, stating no one had been taken into custody or removed from the school.

Carlisle County Schools Superintendent Jay Simmons also declined to comment, stating he did not want to jeopardize the police investigation. When asked if a staff member was involved, Simmons said he could not disclose that information because he was legally bound to keep personnel matters private.

Cash said the investigation is ongoing and more information would be released in the coming days.
