Rochester Police and the Monroe County District Attorney’s office say they have started a joint criminal investigation into the circumstances surround the death of 14 year old Trevyan Rowe.

The two departments say they cannot comment on the possibility of any criminal charges until the investigation is concluded. D-A Sandra Doorley and RPD Chief Michael Ciminelli say that as with any criminal investigation, they will follow and explore all leads.

Their statement, released Tuesday, comes a day after the State Attorney General and State Education Department said that they have launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Trevyan’s death.

The teen walked away from School 12 on South Avenue on March 8th, and his body was found in the Genesee River on March 11th.  Officials have already suspended three teachers and a half-dozen 911 dispatchers in connection with the incident.
