Woman's Body found on the Grounds of Onteora School District?
Once the discovery of the deceased was made a notification was sent to some parents of students at the Onteora School District regarding the incident stating that the body was found close to the school.
The Ulster County Sheriff's Office addressed that rumor saying,
"For clarification and transparency, the decedent was NOT located on school property, there is NO connection between the decedent and the school district, and there is NO safety threat to the school district or the public regarding this investigation."
This investigation remains open and active at this time.
