Cleanup effort continuing


It looks like high-school students will not be back at school at Franklin Regional as originally expected.


Restoration work continues at Franklin Regional High School, where they are cleaning up after Wednesday’s mass stabbing incident.  It had been reported that students would be returning to class this Monday, but Westmoreland County Emergency Management Spokesman Dan Stevens says that restoration continues throughout the building.  They are doing everything they can to make sure that the school looked like it did on Tuesday to help everything get back to normal. 


As we’ve reported, Police believe 16-year-old Alex Hribal stabbed several students in the hallways and classrooms starting around 7 AM on Wednesday.  There is still no word on a possible motive for the stabbing, but FBI officials are looking at Hribal’s cell phone and computer to try and find a possible reason for the incident. 


Several students remain in the hospital as they are recovering from wounds suffered in the incident.  However some of those students received a special surprise as Beau Bennett and Robert Bortuzzo visited Forbes Regional Hospital to meet with victims of the mass stabbing, and they gave them some autographed hockey gear.
