Windsor Police are continuing their investigation of a Windsor High School student's death on December 15th.
Police are following the standardized death investigation protocols. At this time the 17 year old's death appears to be a suicide. Per a press release, the student was at school the day of the incident, but left school grounds alone prior to taking his own life. There also was no indication of any danger to other students or staff members and it appears there were no weapons brought to the school.
