Austin Accident Results in Young Woman’s Death
Scordelis was a student at Stony Point High School who had big dreams for her future. This information comes from Round Rock Independent School District. And, school officials stated that they have additional counselors available at the school for anyone who needs them. After all, their community is currently mourning the tragic loss of one of its bright young faces. It will take time for the community to return to its former joy after a tragedy like this.
Currently, the Austin accident still is under police investigation. The authorities will continue to investigate until they’re sure that there was no foul play involved in this horrible event. They want to make sure that there was nothing to implicate Olguin as a suspect. Anytime someone dies in any kind of accident like this, the police have to do some serious work. We hope they do so and find nothing too serious.
