The Williamsville Central School District concluded its investigation into the Jamey Rodemeyer case last week by suspending some North High School students after Amherst police closed their criminal investigation Nov. 22 without filing charges. . . .
Police Chief John C. Askey had previously stated that his department’s investigation turned up five incidents of alleged bullying at Williamsville North involving Jamey. The freshman killed himself Sept. 18 after complaining in online videos and posts about being bullied over his sexual orientation.
Despite several instances of name calling prior to the investigation, the police chief said “none of the incidents at North High were brought to the school’s attention or Jamey’s parents’ attention until after Jamey had died and police began investigating.”
