Kyle Plush’s Death

Tuesday night the police got a call from Seven Hills high school student Kyle Plush at 3:16 pm. In the calls he was pleading for help. He was apparently desperate for help while the dispatcher was trying to get a location of where he was. The operator was trying to ask for his location and Kyle said “Seven Hills” several times but he wasn’t saying it clearly enough for her to understand what he was trying to say. In the second phone call to the police Kyle said “I probably don’t have much time left, so tell my mom I love her if I die, I’m trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van. In the (inaudible) parking lot of Seven Hills Hillsdale.”, he also told the to send officers immediately that he is almost dead. Seven minutes after the call two police officers were sent to investigate the call. They arrived to the location a few minutes after that but couldn’t find the van.

Kyle Plush was later found by a family member around 9 in the afternoon in a parking lot by Seven Hills High School in Madisonville. They found him six hours after he called for help. The autopsy showed that Kyle died of asphyxia from chest compression. So in little words he was crushed to death by something.

A lot of people were calling the police about Kyle one person said he was with Kyle’s father and that Kyle was “turned over in the seat and stuck there.” Nobody knows how Kyle got stuck in the seat but asphyxia is when you can’t get oxygen into your lunges. There wasn’t any evidence of any foul play happening and Cincinnati Police are going to keep investigating to see what happened that caused Kyle’s death.

Who knows if Kyle’s van falls into the category but apparently 800,000 Honda Odysseys were recalled because of second row seat problems. 46 reports were made to Honda about minor injuries from the seats.

All thoughts are on Kyle’s family to get them through this rough time. Seven Hills sent a letter to the families in the school saying “He was a young man of keen intelligence, good humor, and great courage, and this whole community feels this loss very deeply.” These are great words that any person could hope to hear about themself if something happened to them. Hopefully Kyle is looking down and smiling when he sees all the people he cared about. Kyle started Seven Hills in sixth grade till and he died his Sophomore year.

Avondale Shooting

Last week a 22 year old man named Rashon Watson Jr. was shot and killed in Avondale Ohio on Tuesday. He was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he died. Within an hour of his murder two people were put into custody on Prospect Place and Reading Road, which are streets in Avondale Ohio. Another five people were taken in on people of interest, but no names were given. Lieutenant Steve Saunders said that none of the suspects have been identified as of yet.

ShotSpotter a gunshot detection technology that covered the area of the shooting interestingly enough did not go off. Which leads the police to think that the person who killed Rashon was in a car or indoors. If he was indoors or in a car the sound would be muffled and that is why the shot didn’t activate ShotSpotter. ShotSpotter is a device that picks up on gunshots that alerts the police when a shot is fired so they can act quicker and get to the scene faster.

Though Rashon died, the city has done better in keeping people safe. This is only the third shooting to happen in Avondale this year but only the first that someone died. Where last year there was 10 shootings by this time and 13 shootings to happen in 2016 at this point in the year. The police are still looking for any information that can get to make Avondale safer from these violent acts and encourage for anybody to give them any information they can offer.
