KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Killeen ISD officials Wednesday expressed their sympathies to the family of a high school student whose death is under investigation.

“KISD will have counseling support teams available to speak with students and staff,” Superintendent John Craft said in a statement Wednesday.

“These teams will provide small group and/or individual counseling for as long as needed.”

No details about the 17-year-old boy’s death were released to protect the student’s privacy.

The death may have been drug-related, although the student had no history of drug use, a source with knowledge of the situation said, but autopsy results are pending.
