Fort Drum man’s body found at Calcium school bus garage in apparent suicide


CALCIUM — The body of a young man was found in a car parked next to the Calcium Primary School bus garage early Tuesday.

Indian River Central School District Superintendent James Kettrick said the man was a Fort Drum soldier in his early 20s. Police believe the cause of death to be suicide, according to Mr. Kettrick.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department investigated, but a detective said no further information will be released.

Buses inside the garage were able to be driven out to pick up students as usual, and then the scene was blocked off.

An automated call went out to parents of children who attend the Route 342 school and area parochial schools, informing them of a police investigation “involving a death at the transportation garage.”
