Richard Condon, special commissioner of investigation for the New York City School District, issued a report Thursday detailing Avonté Oquendo's final moments in the Long Island City, Queens, school that he ran away from on Oct. 4, 2013.
The report reveals that a warning issued by Avonté's mother, one warning of his propensity to run off, was never passed on to school administrators. As such, he didn't have the continuous one-on-one attention deemed necessary.
The staff of Riverview School, where Avonté was a student, appears to have been distracted the day the teen went missing.
Thirty-something from Louisville, KY. Made of bourbon and awesome.
