TurnerA freshman at Collinsville High School has died after falling in a stairwell earlier this week.  School officials announced 14-year-old Tray Turner died of his injuries on Thursday and homecoming activities and after school clubs and sports were cancelled in his honor.   Turner was injured in a fall at school on Monday.

Collinsville Police are investigating the incident in which Turner fell in a stairwell, although school officials call it a “tragic accident.”  Meanwhile, a student group called KAHOKstrong is planning fundraisers for Turner’s family, including a collection at tonight’s football game in Collinsville where the student will be remembered.   Tomorrow’s dance and coronation will go on as scheduled.
