Student's Death Ruled A Suicide

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Feb 4, 2009 10:20PM

The death of 10-year-old Aquan Lewis, a 10-year-old student at Evanston's Oakton Elementary School, has been ruled a suicide after an autopsy. The ruling was made by the Cook County medical examiner's office earlier this afternoon. Lewis was found yesterday hanging from a hook in one of the school's bathrooms. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at Children's Memorial Hospital earlier this morning. Any further details are still very hard to come by.
