Looking for answers in teen's death; Md. mom in legal battle with Howard County Schools
In an exclusive interview, the mother of 15-year-old Grace McComas talks with FOX45’s Crime & Justice Reporter Joy Lepola about the legal battle with the Howard County Public School System and former superintendent Dr. Renee Foose.
HOWARD COUNTY, Md. (WBFF) -- For the past five years, Chris McComas has been trying to obtain public records she and her attorney believe Howard County has been withholding and may have even destroyed.
McComas’ 15-year-old daughter committed suicide on Easter Sunday 2012 -- after months of bullying online and at school.
Grace attended Glenelg High School.
Since her daughter’s death, Chris McComas has hired one attorney after another in an effort to get information that she believes could prevent a tragedy like the one she and her family faced.
The family has a meeting scheduled on Monday with Howard County’s Interim School Superintendent Dr. Michael Martirano.
McComas remains optimistic.
A school spokesman says Dr. Martirano, “Does not want to jeopardize or exploit this opportunity to establish a trusting relationship.”
