Ossining H.S. student found dead in home

The Ossining High School community mourned the loss of a 17-year-old student yesterday who was found dead at his home this week.

Police say Miguel Herrera was found in his bedroom after committing suicide.

"He didn't seem like that type of sad person," says Jhonnie Urgiles, a classmate of Herrera.

Ossining High School administrators brought in grief counselors today to help students cope with the loss.
