A Deadly Game?

State officials say boy died playing around, despite his recent suicide threat

Peter Luszczak, superintendent of Adobe Mountain, details "lessons to be learned" in a cover page on the Camacho investigation. He says the "design flaw" that allows sheets to be anchored under metal bars is being reviewed. Kids are being informed of the risks of choking themselves, he says, and allows that it was probably not such a good idea to leave Officer Jaquez alone with a large group of boys.

Luszczak concludes that staff acted appropriately in their assessment that Camacho was not a "high risk to commit suicide."
