& # 39; When you went to the toilet, there was nobody. We don't know what happened. I don't say this to the guilty party, but if the school has a system, that's good, a procedure, & John 39 Amoah, a local pastor and family friend, told WCVB.

Although this appears to be a tragic accident, the family is hopeful that they will end with what the results of the autopsy reveal.
