MISD Responses to Deadly Fight

At Midland Lee High School, for members of the school district the mentality Monday has been to try and keep everything focused on classes, and not the fight last Friday. On Monday, both the superintendent and the Midland Police Chief spoke out about the deadly fight.

"This is not something that is habitual, this is nothing something that again anyone saw coming," explained Dr. Sylvester Perez.

Perez described the fight as an issue that is both "tragic" and "sensitive." He said members of the school district wish their most sincere condolences to the families. However, since Friday's fight happened so suddenly, he said looking back there's not much differently MISD could have done.

"But you know are we going to do anything, what would we have done differently? Quite frankly, I don't know, I'm not sure if we could have done anything differently," Perez said.

Perez also thanked the MISD police, nurses, and teachers who responded immediately after the fight broke out. But for both the district and for Midland police, the biggest work is still ahead.

"There are still a lot of people to be talked to. You get a lot of witnesses there are a lot of stories, and just a lot of sifting through we have to do to put things together and present it," explained Midland Chief of Police Price Robinson.

Chief Robinson said it really is important that so far in the investigation both MISD and police have worked together to figure out as much information as they can. They said it probably will be a little while before they know more details, as students will not be in school later this week for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
