STATEMENT FROM WESTCHESTER COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY

 JANET DIFIORE REGARDING THE INVESTIGATION

INTO THE DEATH OF COREY FOSTER

 

 

 

 

 

“An extensive three and one half month long investigation conducted in conjunction with the Yonkers police department and the New York State Office of Children and Family Services has concluded.

 

Witness statements from more than 55 staff members and residents of Leake & Watts were taken and surveillance video from the gym was analyzed and enhanced.

 

There was an extensive review of the school, medical records and the autopsy findings conducted by the Westchester County Medical Examiner. In addition, an independent examination of the medical records and autopsy findings was performed by a cardiologist.

 

Based upon the analysis of all the information, we have concluded that no criminal charges are supported by the evidence in this case.”
