FYN asked several questions of PSO (Pickens Sheriff's Office) regarding the case which occurred on school property after hours between a 15-year-old female and an 18-year-old male. Due to the ongoing investigation, Lt. Kris Stancil was unable to be more specific regarding the events surrounding the incident or the time leading up to it. He could only verify that the students knew one another.
"Any other comments could lead to compromising either the case or the victim’s identity."
