There are some new details coming to light following yesterday's incident at the Dalton School, where a 17-year-old allegedly jumped to his death. While the Post is withholding the student's name, the Daily News reports that Theodore (Teddy) Graubard went to the empty 11th floor dance studio and "when asked by a teacher why he was there...said he wanted to look around." Minutes later he jumped, something the school's 4th graders witnessed as they were enjoying recess out on the sidewalk (the paper notes that he "nearly landed" on some of them). A security guard said he "heard a loud bang. It sounded like a gunshot. The fourth-graders were out here [and] everybody started running away from the body."

Graubard was a well-liked student who was in the Math Olympiad, played varsity football (and designed the team's website), and was on the track team. WCBS reports that a memorial was growing outside of the school yesterday, and while an emergency meeting of the board of trustees was held last night to discuss counseling for the students, his classmates set up a Facebook memorial page. Sadly they were forced to close the wall due to "sick, horrifying, and utterly disgusting comments being posted." The school, known for its prestige and pressure, has also released a statement, saying: "Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the family."
