State police investigating the death of a Lisbon student


LISBON — State police are investigating the death of a Lisbon Central School student that occurred Wednesday night.

School officials confirmed that Victor Novosel, a 17-year-old 10th-grader, died in a “tragic” incident.

“It’s a sad day,” Lisbon Board of Education President Blake P. Gendebien said.

Superintendent Erin E. Woods declined to comment on the nature of Mr. Novosel’s death, calling it a “tragic event for our community, our families, our students.”

A counseling center has been set up in the library, Ms. Woods said, with counselors from across St. Lawrence County coming to assist students.

State police declined to comment on the matter because the investigation is ongoing.

The school observed a one-hour delay today while teachers and staff held an emergency meeting.

All afterschool activities in Lisbon have been canceled today. A girls basketball game slated for today has been rescheduled to tomorrow.
