Tragedy as Buckie High pupil is found dead

Buckie High School – second tragedy in five months.

A MORAY COMMUNITY is in shock after learning that a 16-year-old boy has been found dead near his home in Buckie.

Police have confirmed that the teenager, a pupil at Buckie High School, was discovered close to the family home.

A spokeswoman said that while police inquiries were at an early stage it was not thought that there were any suspicious circumstances.

“We can confirm that officers were called to a property in the Buckie area on Monday evening following reports of the sudden death of a 16-year-old,” the police spokeswoman said.

She continued: “As with all sudden deaths a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”

It is the second time in a matter of months that pupils at the school have had cause to grieve a tragic loss. In October a collision on the B9016 Buckie to Keith road resulted in the death of 14-year-old Buckie High School pupil Neringa Narusyte.

Earlier today Moray Council announced that a drop-in session scheduled this evening for P7 children had been cancelled.
