Bullying investigation underway in Bedford

News

November 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Police Chief in Bedford released a statement Saturday criticizing the writer of an article in the Des Moines Register, with regard to an incident which led to a Bedford High School student being hospitalized in critical condition, after suffering from a brain injury.

Police Chief Jeremy Holben said Kyle Munson’s article in Saturday’s paper was wrong when he said Bedford Police were not involved in an investigation of the alleged bullying incident involving 16-year old Kacey Strough, a Bedford student and football player. Holben said Munson never spoke with him or any of the officers on the Bedford Police force prior to publishing the story. The Chief said there is an active investigation into the incident, one that has been underway since it was reported two weeks ago.

In his article, Munson quoted family members who stated that Strough’s condition was the result of bullying by teammates. Holben said because of Strough’s medical condition, officers have not been able to interview him about the incident.
