Lisbon student’s death called an accident by state police


LISBON — State police said Friday morning that the death of Lisbon Central School student Victor Novosel is being investigated as an accidental death.

He was 17 and in 10th grade.

The investigation will not be wrapped up until next week because of the amount of documentation investigators are handling.

State police said the investigation is in its final stages, but would not offer more details until the case is closed.

The case is being handled by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Police said the death, which was reported at 4:47 p.m. Wednesday, was not suspicious in nature and was not a suicide.

The accident occurred in Mr. Novosel’s bedroom, state police said.

Students and faculty at Lisbon Central School were alerted to his death Thursday morning, and a counseling center was set up in the library.

Mr. Novosel previously attended Massena Central School and the Little River Community School, Canton.
