URGENT: Principal Suzette York was found stabbed to death at the Memphis Junior Academy and a 17 year old student is in police custody. According to WREG, the teacher’s body was found at about 11:00 a.m. Wednesday in a classroom at the school, which is a Seventh-Day Adventist institution, offering education to students from Pre-K through 11th grade.

Mrs. York, who has been at Memphis Junior Academy for three to four years, is survived by a husband. The new school year started on Monday. The murder occurred in a classroom. A motive for this heinous act has not been disclosed by the police. What a sad turn of events. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. York’s family.
